The first things to be recycled were the red houses.  The only way I was going to make use of them and be happy with them, were in my scrap blocks.  I've cut two from the houses, and the other pieces will be go to make up with the other colours.
The next recycling is a bit more long winded.  A neighbour was getting a new suite, and passed on their old one to us.  This means we needed new cushion covers to go with it. 

A few months ago, a friend gifted me with various bits of fabric, and one of the pieces were offcuts from a curtain.

That piece is now three cushion covers.

These are very simple and basic, with envelope backs.  These are a good start, but I shall look out for some more bargain fabric to compliment these.

Great job of recycling. I hope to work on my houses quilt today if I can stop coughing long enough. Doctor said it is allergies. Never had them before.

What have I missed about recycling? Went back through a few posts, but scratching head about this comment! I've yet to try doing the Houses quilt blocks, but I did love your green town square in a previous post.
