I have the whole system in place - drawers for the various size strips and bricks and squares, "cheat sheet" on my cutting table, a basket for strings and a basket for those little bits best saved for paper piecing. (I should just dump that whole basket into a dog bed because I HATE paper piecing and I HATE using itty bitty irregular pieces for it even more.)
I have a drawer for orphan blocks and a million ideas for leader-ender quilts.
But I don't do it. I'm lazy. When I finally get done with a quilt, the last thing I want to do is tidy up the scraps. Once I've skipped it
Then Bonnie came and re-inspired me. Also, this whole 5th blogoversary/5 giveaways thing. So I spent a good part of this weekend cutting and stacking and counting. I've got a fat quarter bundle, a stack of charm squares and a whole bunch of flannel and denim. I have strings and selvages and embellishments, and I'm trying to figure out which ones would make a good prize.
Best of all, I've found a certain serenity in the pressing and cutting while I listen to a podcast or watch a West Wing on Amazon Prime. Though there doesn't appear to be an end in sight, I know that every 15 minute chunk of time brings me closer to my dream sewing space - the one that is organized and clean and ready for me to make my next quilt.
