Scraps, Scraps and MORE Dang SCRAPS!

I havent been bloggy for almost all month, just nothing to say and a big lack of inspiration. The summer time blahs ---100+ degrees doesn't inspire much except trying to stay cool. Anyway, I am still part of the New Project Challenge at CATPATCHES and the new project I started in June was ,,,, are you ready?.. Working up my scraps! I got so tired of seeing bags of scraps around, always saved with the intention of doing something with them. Throwing fabric away just seems so wrong to me,, somewhere I read that if you think about it, it's like throwing $9.00 a yard fabric out the window. So, I save all of it and then, well, try to find something to do with them. Anyway I'm so proud of the progress,, there is a bag of strips,,

And I cut all kinds of squares, too but I don't have a picture of those. And this is what I still have to go thru ( I ran out of steam,, I am SO tired of scraps !!!!

I did find a lot of little bitty pieces, and I put those all in a bag and I'll make some dog beds again for the Humane Society. OH! And I'm going to use old phone book pages and make some string quilts,,

reuse, recycle

Yeah, I feel your pain. Sorting by color is very smart. I have two bins, one is strips and the other pieces. They get louder every day.
