Here's the stash trolley after a few days of scrap cutting. It looks better than before, doesn't it? I found things in the I'd forgotten all about, and some things that were probably repressed memories!
I'm not sure that I can cross the 'empty one basket' goal off my list at this stage, technically I haven't emptied a basket, I've probably cut the equivalent of a basket, but it's okay. It's not about putting a line through some words, it's about making a commitment to getting some stuff done, and I feel great about that!
I've put orpan blocks in the bottom tray. On the top you can see a Remembrance block. I participated in an exchange in 97-98, and ohhhh my, some of the blocks I received! Some were just lovely ... some were horror stories. My favourite part of that exchange was that I 'met' my wonderful friend Linda for the first time!
In the same pile of blocks are also some applique blocks from an applique class I attended. Two are finished, and one is somewhat finished. It still has tiny pins in it. Maybe I'll finish it someday and make it into a gift for someone. I think the applique blocks may be from the same era as the Remembrance blocks.
I found a few fabrics that I'm not certain were 100% cotton, so I hurled them directly into the trash. I remember Bonnie talking about having no guilt with that one. I also found a crazy quilt block I tried the year before last, I wasn't sure where I'd put it. I didn't do very well with the decorative stitching, so I put it aside to have a 'think about it'.
My ultimate goal is to empty this trolley so I can give it to one of the kids for their toys. I know now that it's just going to take some commitment to cutting and organising. Now I should look at the scary giant fabric tubs ... *shiver*
