Scrappy Tuesday

I haven't made a lot of progress on my ThimbleCreek mystery stars---I still have 10 to go before I can start on today's clue (more checkerboard pieces!).
However, I have done some machine quilting, attended our May guild meeting, had a mammogram and grocery shopped, so I haven't been idle!
Clue 10 ThimbleCreek mystery stars.
(My new enameled tray is from Decor Steals)
I am really scrounging for fabrics. I've pretty much used up the original fabrics I had pulled from my stash, so every week I have been adding new prints.
 That's okay--the scrappier, the better!

My new ironing pressing station!
I picked up this cart at Sam's Club a couple weeks ago, but hadn't had a chance  was too lazy to put it together.
My youngest son got it set up for me on Mother's Day.  

 The center shelf is adjustable, so we made sure there was room for my gallon jugs of Best Press and starch, etc.
I love it!

  1. Anything with stars is OK with me!

  2. Oh I like your scrappy stars.
    A pattern that I can always enjoy looking at. Wonderful fabrics.

  3. Pretty stars ! Looks like you are enjoying your mystery...Yeah for helpful sons on Mother's Day! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  4. More beautiful blocks Karen and that 'pressing trolley' is just the greatest idea! Have a wonderful day! :) x

  5. Gosh, I just love those mystery stars. I can not wait to see the quilt come together.

  6. I have the Ikea version of that cart. Actually, I have two. Love them! Happy belated Mother"s day.

  7. I have been saving the Thimble Creek mystery quilt instructions but not made anything. The star blocks are the most interesting part thus far. I am wondering how the parts are going together and how it will look.

  8. I like those stars. Looks like you have been having a busy time.
    The cart looks great.

  9. I really like your new little cart! The color is awesome!
