Default Just Can't Throw Away Those Scraps

I have been doing some cleaning, reorganizing and had decided to dispose of some scraps, but in the middle of making this decision, I sat down at the sewing machine and turned scraps into two new tops. Sorry, could not get two of the photos to download. Check back later to see the yardage I pieced together and the other top.

I like it .......I talk to myself and say be a big girl and get rid of some of these scraps I go as far as grabbing a handful and hover over the trash can but can't release my hand to let them go they end up back in the scrap box

I know what you mean. I am the same way. I started sewing some but I can't decide which pattern to make so I made 3 or 4 blocks of 4 different patterns. I am in the process of finishing one UFO and then, I will start making one scrappy quilt top. I can't wait to see you other pictures. This one looks really nice in my opinion

I am still trying to figure out why 2 photos worked and 3 did not. Going to try again. NOTE: This is just a small fraction of my scraps. I have a closet full. Uh oh, still won't work. Why oh why

Those are too pretty to be thrown away. What a nice save!
