Well, it's been busy busy busy around here (again!) but at least this week I carved out a little time to dig out from under the catastrophe at the end of my worktable...
That picture looks a little tame, and really isn't indicative of the true state of affairs....
Here's one taken from the other side! Now you can see just how desperate the situation really was.
I don't really have time right now to do this job properly - take each piece, press it, and cut it into the many various sizes I keep on hand - so I'm going to do the "down and dirty" version of scrap management. This involves sorting the scraps by color and storing them in tubs underneath my long arm machine.
You may not be able to tell from this picture, but there are stacks for various colors, a stack for orphan blocks, one for batiks (which I store separately) and a stack for solids (one day I WILL make an all-solids scrappy quilt!).
Those stacks are now all tucked away in their appropriate storage tubs, and I have a nice clean worktable once again.
What scrappy things are you working on this week?
