Yesterday I spent the entire day sewing crumb blocks. I have a lot. of. scraps. I could make crumb blocks from now until the cows come home, and still not use up all my scraps. Crumb blocks are endlessly endless. I used about 4 dozen blocks to make a couple of quilt tops. I still have a pile of over 100 blocks, I'm sure. (Didn't count, but I know...) My scrap bin is down about 1/4 of a tiny unit.
If I sewed and sewed and sewed until I used up all my scraps, how many crumb blocks do you think I would have in the end? Easily 2,000 or more, I bet. And the act of making crumb blocks creates more scraps. It's a vicious cycle.
Here is what I did today:
1) covered God's in-box .. not too professionally done, but God doesn't mind. I got this idea from reading Anne Lamott's book, Traveling Mercies. When having a problem, scribble down a note to God, or just a name, or a whole prayer if you want, and drop it into the Inbox. Surprisingly, it seems to help! God will help you with your problem!
2) a Halloween bag for sale at church bazaar
3) crumb block top which still needs some kind of borders
4) another crumb block top that needs more of something.. it's too small right now
All these projects distracted me from finishing the table runner of a couple days ago, not to mention the secret project I need to finish and deliver to someone in my guild ASAP. I would have worked on that today, but I couldn't find one part of it. Weird. It has been in plain sight for days, until now when I wanted to start working with it.
You will get to see a picture of my secret project in about one month.
