I've been putting off a job - clearing out my huge trash basket next to the sewing machine. Sometimes, good stuff remains on my sewing desk and I just swish all those unknowns into the huge trash basket, mostly to clear it off my mind. A few crumb block items were made recently from the top layers, but its depths remained undisturbed for years. Today was the day. The 6 ft. picnic table was dragged from behind the sofa and set up for WORK! I figured, lights, medium lights, darks including black and reds, bright kids prints, and several packages of "too good to throw out, but presently useless."
Here is yet another mess! Nothing except the woven trash basket seams worth keeping! Perhaps I've already used up the best parts? ...perhaps I should press it all and trim ... maybe an Internet search to Walmart or Menards to invest in another small storage cabinet ... there went 2 hours on the computer!
With so much unused, sorted, pressed yardage nicely folded up in other cabinet drawers, it seems almost pointless to use up these bits and crumbs. Maybe this mess needs to "cook" for a while .. maybe I should just make up a few 9-patches and see what happens, maybe a double strong cup of coffee??? or, perhaps I should just return to the collection of "I spy" prints, stored in another cabinet. OK brain, concentrate and do SOMETHING!!!!
