Playing with scraps

Hi all well I have been playing with scraps today and thought you might like to see.  I have also  had a rearrange in the sewing space and put a cutting table in there so that makes it easier for me to cut things and leave them out  .so to start with the scraps are one and a half inches square and I am sewing them into nine patches I found the little boxes of scraps at a garage sale last year for $2 each they are stuffed full .I don't know how big this quilt will get but I am just going to keep sewing until all the scraps are gone It will be a single Irish chain quilt when it is done and I am thinking about hand quilting it am I crazy ?
 See the word quilt on the cutting table Ds and DIL to be gave them to me for my birthday along with a few other goodies I am trying to decide how to finish them but I am happy with them as they are for now
 so now you have a little glimpse of where I sew  hmmm I need to sort the bookcase I think.
hope you are getting some sewing time today  hugs Beth
