    OK I had this goal set to use all of my scraps that have been collecting in my bins for the last couple of years....I have been sorting, cutting and sewing. I thought I was in the home stretch today because I have about 25 different sized panels sewn together and sketched many ideas for quilts and I have a few scrap quits in process as we speak.....I figured all I would have is a few tiny peices that I would save for paper peicing projects.....Funny thing happened.... :evil:

    I found another bin full of scraps???? WHAT!!!!????? :roll:

    so I guess I am not going to meet that goal..but of all goals to fail that is a really good one..because I love scraps...scrap quilts and making something of nothing ..so to say! So I have been defeated..but in a good way and I will just have to set smaller goals next time! :shock:

    We had previously discussed how scraps multiply in the night, so that's probably what that was :D

    I have found that scraps are always among us no matter how hard we try to organize them. That is not to say to let them pile up but if you accomplished sorting 2 years worth WOW!! I get mine under control and then cut out another quilt and they are back again.

    Why you think you are defeated? Just attack those scraps, keep working on it until the box is gone, and who knows, maybe, if you are lucky, another box will appreaf from somewhere. You are not defeated! You are just still fighting!

    I have a plan, While I am still on severance from my job I am going to try to get some king size batting (2 or 3) and keep around. Later, when I am home looking for a job, I will keep myself sane using all the scraps I have around. I am thinking big! I am planning a king size scrappy quilt, with only small scraps on the top and backing. When I finally run out of scraps to piece, then I will start quilting them. By then I should have a job and be able to start my stash again, will have a few completed quilts and will still be sane.

    At least that is what I keep on telling myself.
