National Sweater Day

Feb 6 is National Sweater Day 
 I'm having so much fun, putting together blocks for my 
I love finding all the clip art, to create the daily blocks.
 But this particular one, really stopped me in my tracks.
The perfect design, the perfect scrap of fabric that's been in my stash for years...
It's making me wish I had a sweater like this!

I've had a lot of questions on this project.
The blocks are 8" x 10"
They are individually bound and won't be going into any quilt.
I've sandwiched the front and back to a stiff bowl fabric, so they are more like,
really big playing cards! I think they will be fun to page through, in years to come. 
 Who knows, maybe a grandchild 
will have fun learning and playing with them too.

Stash busting...some might even call it trash busting!
This is what happens when you just can't part, 
with even a scrap of "Island Batik" fabric.
While many would have made dog beds, or thrown it in the trash, I saved it. 
It's amazing what you can do with these little scraps.
And those shelves and drawers of fabrics that I just had to have...
well, hopefully these blocks will make some kind of a dent.

Do you want to play along?
Please feel free to jump in...
You can find a number of websites showing the Silly Holidays for the year.
One of my favorites is "Brownielocks".

It doesn't even have to be silly holiday related. 
How about something, that just makes us laugh.
You can post it on Facebook or Instagram with the #dailygigglefest or #365sillyholidays
You can even email it to me and I will post it here on my blog.
We want to have 365 reasons to smile in 2020.
OOPS...it's leap year...make that 366!

Follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see the blocks daily!

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. I have a bin like that too - no batiks because of allergies. These are just precious treasures and you can always find 'that just right' piece.

  2. You are doing an amazing job....the clearing is in sight so maybe I’ll look for a few faves and hop onboard!

  3. I follow you on facebook and enjoy every day (or should I say silly day). This sweater block is my favorite by far - how perfect is that fabric! Great job.

  4. Another really cute 'silly'. I hope you're putting something on the back to make note of the silly day you're creating.

  5. You continue to amaze me and bring a smile to my face with each day's holiday! Lots of fun.
    I can't understand people who do throw scraps out. You always find you need just a little bit and it will always be in that special bin!


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
