Slightly less boring than sorting the button box, but not by much
As part of my effort to start drawing down my strategic reserve of fabrics and quilt batts I recently decided to re-organize my scrap bin. I do this every seven or eight years, but until now I never had any clear goals in mind.
This time I had some rules. I even wrote them up.
The fabrics in this picture, however, failed the "large enough to produce a 5 1/2 inch square" test, so they've been put into their own little box, on the theory that they might come in handy someday for mending (I have a real talent for tearing out the corners of my apron pockets.)
This all reminds me of a lovely book, String Too Short To Be Saved.
