    Just "Gotta Sew" Day

    Keep all sizes scraps, sew a few pieces together each day in no particular pattern or order.
    Assemble randomly at end of week/month. Add one or more borders ... and you have an
    interesting little top to use as Table Topper or Wallhanging. Recommend this process for
    days with no particular planned project, but you "just gotta sew !"

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You can also use this sort of blocks for tote bags. I've made two the last few days. Make nice gifts.

    nice way to use your creativity and scraps. It certainly looks like a fun way to spend the day sewing.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    That's a very good idea and it keeps the scraps from building up.

    Sew cute! I love looking at the scrappys to see if I have or have had any of the fabrics! LOL! I also have those days, usually keep a rag quilt going, or pieces cut to make pillowcases, yours is a great idea!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    What a great idea for when you feel like sewing but don't have a project started and just want to play a little with something different.

    Super, thanks for showing us another way to use all those scraps we can't part with! (Yes, I am a scrapaholic.)
