It's mind-boggling that there is a web site to fit our every need. Guess my computer is second only to my sewing machine, but this web site is #1 with me. I have learned so many ideas and hints from all of you. My sewing projects bring me so much more satisfaction and pleasure since joining all of you. Thank you for all you have shared.

There's another thread (still ongoing?) about organizing a sewing room, etc. Someone posted her room and she had the clever idea of using a clear plastic pocket shoe hanger on the wall behind her door. It probably isn't good for keeping out wrinkles but it is one way of storing scraps, even into color groups. Just a thought.

That website displayed okay. THANKS! Bonnie Hunter's method of scrap organization is similar but different from Scrap Therapy, in that she prefers to cut strips rather than squares. Whatever works .... "To each his own", as my Mom loved to say! I have found it helpful to cut 2 1/2" strips in addition to the 5 - 3 1/2 - 2 inch squares, especially with all the jelly roll pattens available. One thing I like about Bonnie Hunter's method is that she only sorts by darks & lights, rather than than darks, lights and mediums. It's all relative, anyways, when you get around to piecing. To save on "decision time", I think I will adopt that theory and just sort by darks & lights. Learn something new every day. Thanks for your input on this subject.

okay but what about when you have fabric that could go either way? I have some brown plaid.....looking at the brown its dark but its also beige! Oh and I'm cleaning today....the sewing area. I'm so flusterated (my own word :-) ) that what should take me an hour or two is taking forever. I appreciate all the tips....I kind of like the idea of bags. I wouldn't have to buy anything else that way and right now money is past being tight!
