It puts me in a mood to tidy and clean, especially deck and garage so I can be outside, but it has also spilled into the house and my sewing area. I've decided to keep myself honest in my stashbusting by posting monthly pics of my progress. I didn't realize myself how much I had
done until I looked at these:
I have to give credit for this to Bonnie Hunter's Scrap User System that she shared with us at our March guild meeting. She explains it all (for free!) on her website, plus so much more. I took her directions and made myself a little cheat sheet to keep in a plastic sleeve on my cutting table. The drawers you see under the table have my different sized squares, bricks, and strips in them. The large Basket by Dawn is my favorite and holds the twin sized quilt I am currently hand quilting for my mother.
So you can see that there is hope, even for the messiest of Messies. Open your windows, let in some spring air, and spend 15 minutes folding and cutting and fondling your favorite fabrics. You'll be amazed at what you find and how much more you can accomplish. Have a beautiful weekend!
