    I have no idea what possessed me to drag out all my scraps, I had the bright Idea to organize ,well needless to say I got too overwhelmed.lol The large white sack is full of old scraps I washed and ended up with a wadded up mess.I plan to see if I can lower my ironing board and sit and press for a day. Does anyone else get these bright ideas?

    I did once and got over it. When I open my scrap containers they triple in size in 30 seconds or less:)

    Well at least you have started somewhere... I can't even bring myself to drag all of my scraps out at one time. I think I would be so overwhelmed at my mess that I'd give up before I got started, so I just haven't started!

    Hey, you are doing a good thing there- if your scraps call to you, they need to be made into something! You have to help them towards their destiny (and post pics!)

    If you have a suitable child in your life they love ironing flat pieces of fabric, (although, with a bag that size, you might need a few children to volunteer :-))

    I've done it. I ended up storing everything in Space Bags. Once I had it sorted - that is.

    I did a fairly decent sort on my fabric when we moved into our house here in Lubbock. It was a nightmare, so now I try to keep it organized as I go. I don't like a lot of clutter and mess, so, for my sanity, I have to keep it manageable. :-D :-D
