    Help, stop me! if you are my friends, please just tell me NO. I don't need another project. I don't need another project. I have plenty. Please tell me the same thing. I don't need another project. . . . .

    Yup, I save them and use them for rope. If you crochet a chain stitch with them, they make a nice rope of sorts.

    I save them to tie up my homemade "jelly rolls" I cut from remnants or leftovers from quilts. I use my Accuquilt cutter to cut 2 1/2" strips, roll them and tie for future projects.
