We've had birthdays and engagements to celebrate. In between times I have been trying to tackle my crumb blocks. I truly thought I could empty out ALL my scrap bins. Well, I will say I made a big dent. From 3 overflowing containers I whittled it down to one almost-full bin. Right now I have about 100+ regular crumb blocks on hand, a few white ones, black ones, and a decent pile of need-to-be-trimmed yellow crumbs. I'm trying to make some monochrome crumbs for some fun variation in my settings.
This little journey to eradicate my scraps reminded me that I was on an impossible quest. Every once in a while I have to re-test the duplicating skills of scraps and remind myself that I'm not the boss of the scraps. Pretty soon, though, I'll have a few fun crumb quilts to show for my efforts.
