Once I had started I couldn't stop, I discovered that flat scraps take up a lot less room than scraps stuffed and crammed into boxes and if scraps are stored flat, they will be ready to use straight away.
There were piles upon piles of scraps, my iron was running hot all weekend, but I now have scraps that are easily accessed and organised by colour.
strings are clipped together with foldback clips
and hung from hooks in the cupboard.
This afternoon I celebrated the finish of my scrap organisation by making an improv block from scraps,
the block was made from some of my leftover Farmer's Wife scraps, if I make it a wee bit larger then I can turn it into a quilt for Cody to lie on, I'm sure he will appreciate it.
