Finding hidden treasure

Welcome to 2010!

I've been busy since the start of the new year, unfortunately not sewing! Classes are starting this month so there's been alot of lesson planning and writing up cutting instructions, etc.

In January I always clean my sewing room....and oops, look what I found! A stack of 12 9-patch blocks...I do remember these (actually I think they're from 2 years ago-I just put them away last year a little too well :) . Not sure what I'll do with them yet but I'm thinking of making more-I have more of the beige fabric in the closet and then we'll see.

I still have a bit more cleaning up to do-the little plastic chest with 4 drawers where I throw my cut offs and little bits in is bursting at the seams...wonder if I'll find any more "bured treasure".

It seems I always find something when I clean out the sewing room - right now I'm wondering where did one of my rulers go to!

The blocks are wonderful and enjoy the project!

Wow you are good and what a lovely suprise to find these wonderful 9 patch. Good luck with making more of them..

I keep finding the same blocks year after year. Sometimes you just have to set your mind to it and do something with them. I am sure you will come up with a good project for your found blocks.

Oh,wow, what a neat little stash to find! Can't wait to see what they turn into.

If you can't figure out what to do with them, Miri, I'll take them! How about the disappearing nine patch? Should be interesting with the all white background. You didn't say what size they were.

Hidden treasures are great. If you have forgotten your original plan, you may get an even better idea how to use the blocks.
