Some things take time.....

I really wanted to WOW you with a great post that would generate oodles of comments....but sometimes one just has to be satisfied with the everyday stuff...

And okay, so I didn't labor on Labor Day as much as I thought....

However, my scrap pile has slightly dwindled....



and turned into this.....






with more to come....

I want to add more fabric to the pile in the box, but I want to see it empty first.  Then I will really start  putting my other piles of scraps together into one pile and turn them into stash also.

In the meantime, I will alternate handquilting my blue/white quilt with this project.  I also promise to  start free-motion practice (which I should have started this weekend).  I have everything ready and because I am not piecing anytime really soon, I can dedicate my machine to practicing the next few days (if we just get rain and not too many storms from Hermine..)

say you really got yourself plenty of space to lay out those handy boxes ,I have limited space and it seems no matter what I do I still can't have enough space to lay them out like that, good job!!

Theodora, I do have space to spare right now...however I am not using it wisely. I was so thrilled to get a sewing space that I jumped right in and started sewing. So now I am faced with trying to arrange it so that I know where everything is, or at least have a hint. Sometimes having limited space is good because you are forced to think of ways to store and arrange what you need from the first.
