It starts innocently enough. I am digging through the string bucket for yellow for crumb stars, that I am making for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I let the thought pass through my head that it is a big mess, and, then, I find a few half done wonky courthouse blocks. And poof, I am playing in the strings. My table is a scrappy mess, and my treadle is whirring. Such fun. And I believe if I just sew all these together, it will be clean.
On another front, I find a box of scraps that need to be cut. And, I started cutting 2 1/2 inch strips and chunks and, poof, I have a basket of strips and squares that I need to put away, and the scrap bin isn't any more organized. There was 1 pound and 8 ounces of strips = 4 1/2 yards of fabric. 4 1/2 yards x 10.00 = 45.00 so I keep going.

I've had that happen to me. Open up a scrap bag for RSC and soon the whole room is a mess!ReplyDelete
It is so tempting to start chasing those squirrels. I've been trying to get a handle on my scrap drawers and bags. I've made progress, but boy the pull of doing something new with all these newly cut strips is really hard to resist.ReplyDelete
I had to laugh, this is exactly what happens to me. I love seeing a peek at your treadle in the background. Is it a Singer 15? I have one and love it.ReplyDelete
Another day of chasing squirrels, Maggie? What ever works to USE those scraps! :o))ReplyDelete
Hehe!! I can relate, too!ReplyDelete
And the other thing? When you sew all the scraps, the buckets and bins never go down in volume! I love the fun aspect of just playing too. Thank you for linking up with DrEAMi!ReplyDelete
