Scrap Fabric Heart



Every winter I save fabric scraps. From projects, towels that are past their usefulness, clothing that has been worn to rags.

I cut them into small strips.

When spring comes, I throw my little collection out into the brambles.

By the time summer comes, the scraps are gone. I like to think of my old worn out shirt gracing the nest of a forest critter ... my daughter's old hoodie lining a bird's nest.

I hope the critters appreciate my HEARTFELT efforts. Somehow, I think they do.

That is a GREAT idea! I watched a squirrel doing away with my frazzled garden rope the other day--He stuffed about four feet of it into his cheeks!

I love this heart--it's recycled! I bet it won't be there long--it will soon be in the nest of one of those critters!

By the way, they love dryer lint, too!

That sounds like a great idea. I just removed a pan of brownies from the oven. That's going to be dessert tonight. Our vegetarian daughter is coming over, and our Granddaughter loves spaghetti, so that's on the menu for tonight. Hot Italian crusty rolls, and salad. Hope no one played an April Fools joke on you.
