Still on Mt. Scrapmore and today, we are dealing with fabric scraps. Make sure you have your timer with you as this can really suck the energy out of you.
I started today feeling quite proud that I had not let my scrap get out of hand this year. Throughout 2020 I kept cutting and sewing them into blocks and adding them to my backs. Then taming my crumbs in various projects...I even made a video. And keeping it all neat and tidy.
But when I pulled them out yesterday I can see that they need attention. I know I have neglected them for several months but in addition, somewhere along the line I started collecting selvages, and I have all sorts of batik scraps generated from my 4th of July quilt.
And I need to look at my routine for processing them. I had found that my containers at the end of my sewing table were either getting knocked over or just simply in the way. And at some point, I decided to just toss everything in a laundry hamper. It actually made life a lot simpler. But now it's time to bring everything back out. And decide on a new flow.
So the decisions remain the same. How much space do I want my scraps to take up? Do I still like them? How am I going to use them?
And move those that don’t make the cut into the donation bin.
