for several months (because that's how I roll) I've had this stack of cut-up jeans that needed to be made into squares for a picnic blanket. Denim picnic/beach blankets are the BEST in my opinion, and so durable, etc. etc. 

so the other day I finally got to work and cut a bunch of 5 inch squares.  I got a stack big enough for the size blanket I wanted.

and my bag full of jeans scraps is still almost the same size as it was when I started! I'll probably be able to make up 3 or 4 quilted tops with the fabric I've got here. Perhaps I was a bit zealous, no? 

I have a couple of really cool Harry Potter patches to add to one of the blankets, too. Maybe I'll even have it done around the time that the 6th movie comes out.... :)

I have a HUGE bag of jeans too! (Don't tell Eric) I haven't had a chance to cut them up though.

I have a TON of different colored denim that I have been collecting, I was at the thrift store the other day and found a pair of "reach out and slap you" yellow that I bought for $1.98 Woot!! Now to get the time to cut them up... hehe.

Be sure to include pockets 'cause that's way fun.
