    Even the tiniest pieces are good for postcards, garbage can fabric, miniature quilt blocks, needle books, etc. etc. I try not to waste anything that I can think of a use for.

I know that the colors will fade in the sun, but it looks like it's doing a good job as mulch and looks so pretty.
    Now that is an AWESOME idea! I put my yarn bits out for the birds to use in their nests in the spring. But I like this idea even better!
