For a little while yesterday, and after we got home tonight, I have cut strips for my scrap boxes.
After non-stop activity in the sewing room for the past couple of months, I really needed to do some tidying up, and the piles of offcuts/leftovers/batt etc were really starting to look messy and need attention.
So, first, I'm sorting, folding and cutting up all the bits and pieces. In the picture are my 3.5", 2.5", 2" regular scrap boxes. My applique (generally batik) fabrics and my 2.5" and combined 2" and 1.5" Thimbleberries scraps. Out of picture are some other size scrap boxes. I haven't cut up all the scraps you can see in the last few days, but the boxes are beginning to fill up again.
Once all the fabric is sorted, I'll clear away the paperwork I've piled up. All the patterns etc that I've drawn up and not filed away, magazines and other assorted mess. Once all that is done, my mind will be clear, and I can begin creating again. It will be like a breath of fresh air in the sewing room :-)
