Right now I have all the nice little pieces lined up in aluminum trays in color order. I had to go over them to make sure all were the right size, and I didn't have any duplicates. I got a couple of duplicates, and put them in a bag to swap out. I had a problem with a bag of squares from another swap that were not true to size. Some were bigger, and some where smaller.. I didn't have the patience to go through them, and tossed them. When I am ready to start, I am going to toss all the trays in a shopping bag, and shake up good, and take out two at a time, and chain stitch. Now that I think of it, I could start doing a couple at a time in between other things I'm working on. That is after I get the squares from this swap It is mindless work,but relaxing.
