Ready for some fun? I am! I'm also ready to free myself from my many, many bags of fabric scraps. It's a joke that I've held onto these for so long. I even moved them to Europe. It's ridiculous. I tried to throw them away, just to move on, lighten the load. I ended up taking them out of the garbage and putting them in the pile of things to be moved to Lux. It's a sickness, really. So here I am scraps and all.
I thought that maybe some of you are in a similar situation. Maybe we could lighten our loads together. What I came up with is a SCRAPDOWN (not to be confused with a SMACKDOWN. There are no gigantic scantly clothed men in masks in a SCRAPDOWN.)
Here's the plan: Each month or so we'll decide on an item(s) to make that we'll each create out of our scraps. A quilt? Pillow? Bag? We can share our process and projects in a flickr group (and our blogs - if you have one.) Jump in for one project or do them all! I think it's going to be really fun. We may even get all our Christmas presents made along the way.
I'll announce the first project tomorrow! It'll be a super fun one, trust me. So, go look through your stash. Go uncover all the bits and pieces you just couldn't part with. Now is the time. I hope you'll join me.
Here's to letting go of our baggage!
