Many of the piles here, there, and everywhere were scraps that needed to be cut down. I was ruthless in getting rid of scraps I never want to see again. Do your scraps do that to you? I was so sick of some of them! I shoved a bunch in a plastic bag and it will go to the charity shop; ones that were too thin, too stiff, or too small went into the trash. I do not save strings, selvages, or anything smaller than 1.5" wide. The rest I cut to the sizes I had already set up: 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3.5". They were sorted ROY G. BIV style and placed back in the drawers. Larger scraps will be cut into 2.5 strips with my GO! cutter at a later date. The eventual plan is to separate the precut squares from the strips for easier use. There is also a drawer of neutral scraps that needs to be dealt with.
To also cut down on visual clutter, I covered the cutting table with a king sized sheet to hide the bins/drawer stacker/tools, etc. Lucy thought that was great fun (see her tail there on the left). This blurry shot was me hurrying before she ran out, which she did, seconds later. So, while I still have piles and unfinished projects, things are a bit neater.
Friday I worked an early shift and came home in time for DH and me to get out of the house for a sunset stroll on our city's pier, and dinner at a favorite restaurant.
The "marine layer" hanging offshore looked ready to roll in. But there was no wind and it was warm out yet.
Spencer Makenzie's and were home before eight. We promised ourselves more of these types of workweek endings!
