Scraps = Distraction

So, there I was, dutifully organizing my craft supplies when I found my bins of tiny fabric scraps. These are the strips I cut when squaring up fabric or whatever. My justification for keeping these wonky, skinny, too-small-for-quilting strips is "I'll sew them to blank cards and send them to all my friends!" Yeah right...I've made exactly one fabric card and I don't know what happened to it. But I still save the pieces, just in case.

So, anyway, back to the story...I took the strips from several small boxes and put them all in one larger box. See? I organized something!

But then I got distracted. By the fabric strips. And I just bought a new pinking shears after my last one went missing. I think you can see where I'm going here.

Several hours later I had an actual finished thing which you'll see in my next post. Go me, right? Of course, that one box is all the organizing I did all day which was disappointing. But wait till you see what I made. It was worth it!

Oh, also, I know everyone is into green and grey now...and I can't blame them. I'm so in love with green and grey that I want to take it out to dinner...you know, to one of those fancy places that makes me have an anxiety attack. I'd do it for you, green and grey.
