It is well known that I get excited about scraps and possibilities and the leftovers other people share with me. I even have a specific place in my sewing room for such things. But, the space had overflowed and included a few (maybe 5 or 6) grocery bags on the floor.
So I spread them all out. Whoops!
The “ugly little secret” wasn’t so little.
After a complete sort and evaluate, and a solid conversation or two with myself, it is now separated into categories and ready to roll. Categories: 1. Someone else will love more. 2. Not really a separate project and reabsorb into stash. 3. Special fabrics that are the start of a quilt and need friends. 4. Fabrics that play well together and are nearly ready to be a quilt. 5. Most of a quilt kit (typically baby quilts for gifting or donation). 6. Second Chance Quilt projects (15 of these–YAY!).
In fact, I picked my next Second Chance Quilt and hope to have some time with it today. Hmmm…what do these 4 lovely 18″ blocks want to become? We shall see…
I am so happy for this moment (a few hours, actually) of honesty. I feel refreshed and more excited than ever to get going on some of these projects.
