    Complete the sentence- " am I the only one who----
    1) Misses the waste basket when i through away thread or
    scraps, they land on the floor and get caught in the
    wheels of my rolling chair making chair hard to move?

    2) Just keeps pilling up stuff when quilting until I can not
    move and then have no choice but to clean up at least
    a little?

    I keep 2 wastebaskets under my desk at my machine. I try very hard to put the stuff in there. =) Sometimes it makes it unless I'm really concentrating. As far as the cleaning up part...It comes in spurts when I'm sewing. My kids are all big enough to fend and have learned that when I'm in the Zone you better figure it out or go hungry. =)

    .... Loves to see all those teeny tiny little trimmings laying on the cutting table in a pile?....
    They look like little jewels

    ..... Doesn't care that much if there is a point on my stars?

    .... never met an unsquare block I didn't like?

    .... thinks a 'wavy' border gives a quilt character?

    Those little bits of thread and scraps are called Carpet Decoration.
