Today was a liberating day for me. I attacked something I could control. I turned my attention to my scrap box. Normally, I save my scraps because I may need a bit more of the fabric or the scraps may become part of a smaller project -- or that fabulous scrap quilt in my mind.
My scrap box was overflowing with bits and pieces. Did I truly plan to use these scraps? Have I gone in new directions and these pieces will not fit in? Am I tired of looking at these old fabrics?
The answer was a definite YES. So today, I was in control of their life span. I was judge, jury and executioner. It turned into a fun, liberating day. I TERMINATED 5 grocery bags of fabric. And, I didn't feel guilty at all.
Some of the fabric will be recycled into a donation for our charity quilting group. Other bits are just too small to be rescued. Just why was I saving such small pieces anyway?
I feel free. Tomorrow I will start anew refilling my scrap box.
