    Complete the sentence- " am I the only one who----
    1) Misses the waste basket when i through away thread or
    scraps, they land on the floor and get caught in the
    wheels of my rolling chair making chair hard to move?

    2) Just keeps pilling up stuff when quilting until I can not
    move and then have no choice but to clean up at least
    a little?

    1) no

    3) No one told me to clean up every once in a while.

    I keep 2 wastebaskets under my desk at my machine. I try very hard to put the stuff in there. =) Sometimes it makes it unless I'm really concentrating. As far as the cleaning up part...It comes in spurts when I'm sewing. My kids are all big enough to fend and have learned that when I'm in the Zone you better figure it out or go hungry. =)

    .... Loves to see all those teeny tiny little trimmings laying on the cutting table in a pile?....
    They look like little jewels

    ..... Doesn't care that much if there is a point on my stars?

    .... never met an unsquare block I didn't like?

    .... thinks a 'wavy' border gives a quilt character?

    Those little bits of thread and scraps are called Carpet Decoration.

    I've given up on reaching the waste basket. I've accepted I now wear "furry" socks.

    well I thought if I strung out a bit of thread here and there it would look like I was doing something besides chatting on 'the board'. did it work?

    (had a towel with tads of thread all over it from the dryer and found just the right color for one of my projects on the wall, now whatcha think of them apples?)

    Blessings,
    Ruth

    all the above apply to me. That's why I have to do a major cleaning job after Christmas. I can't find the floor anymore.

    My carpet decorations just got vacuumed up a couple of hours ago. We have company coming in tomorrow There was a trail coming from my sewing room, across the balcony and down the stairs. I'm locking the sewing room door until Sunday afternoon when everyone is gone.

    I have my DS vacuum the house (including my sewing room) every Thursday - otherwise my furry socks would be trailing threads all over the house
