For me, this year is the year of the UFO and the year of the scrap. Not much has happened on either front, but it's early yet. I did tackle cutting up a few scraps for the first of three light blue Squared Away blocks made using the Red Cross block.

I'm happy with the first block. The tulip fabric in the center was used in a quilt for my mother-in-law. She's no longer with us, but pulling out that fabric for the center made me smile thinking of her humor and the love for her family. That's one of the joys of sewing with scraps, remembering the people who got the original quilt.
The second Squared Away block is under construction and I've got the fabrics picked for the third block. I'm hoping to get both done this weekend. For now, I'm off in search of a cup of hot tea and breakfast. Happy stitching this weekend.
