Snow Day #2

This was Atlanta traffic yesterday morning, most of these people are still trying to get home from the night before.  Glad I was home!!!!  My poor Sister in Law was stuck in traffic for 18 hours. 

I was not as productive today as yesterday, I did some sewing but got sidetracked.  I started looking for a piece of fabric that I know I have and couldn't find it.  That lead to cleaning in the sewing room.  I have to admit over the last couple of months I have let things pile up too much.  It is definitely time for a cleaning.  This is one of my scrap bins, I decided to go through it and start using Bonnie Hunter's method of cutting scraps into strips and squares.  I made a little bit of progress.  I even threw out the scraps that were just too small to use and some that I know I will never ever use.  In between pressing and cutting I did some other cleaning.  I think I made a bigger mess that it was before and I still haven't found the fabric I was looking for.

Organizing scraps is very productive in the long run! I started sorting mine by color last summer and now I can find them easily and I use them much more. Snow day 2 was very successful. We are supposed to get about 3 inches between tonight and tomorrow morning which is not enough for us to get a snow day, but I am thinking of taking the day off!

I was home too! Didn't get out until Thursday and it was still slick on some of the roads. At least you got your scraps taken care of...I still need to do that. I just keep piling them into bags. Did you separate into colors?
