Kathy, at Slow Sunday Stitching, is keeping me on a wonderful, relaxing pace.
I have finished Aunt Bea’s Parlor, block 6.
Here are the first six completed blocks:
Onto block 7.
And I am continuing to work on scrap control.
The black, gray and white scrap bags are sorted and cut into various usable strips.
I am sorting the green scrap bag.
What a tedious job.
Please don’t let me allow my scraps to take over ever again!
Organizing my scraps by storing them in color coded fabric baskets has been on my To-Do List for quite some time.
I wanted quick and easy baskets to make. No handles, zippers, cardboard or plastic inserts, magnets or Velcro.
Pam, over at Threading My Way, posted a fabric basket tutorial that fit my need. I changed the size of the bag (mine is larger), and I used Timtex, since I already had that on hand, and wanted to use it up.
Now that the scraps are no longer “out of sight; out of mind”, I hope to use them more in projects. It will certainly be a lot easier to find them!
And I like the way the bags look on my shelf, too!
