I started sorting the scraps I brought home and at one point I had a little pile that called out to become a block.
This is the block I made.
Everything else I was doing got put on hold as I trimmed and cut squares from the scraps and then going through my bins and cutting squares from smallish pieces.
So, I have been energized to tackle the bins of pieces and parts that are taking up space I am focused on cutting for a few specific patterns that use random scraps. I have stacks of cut squares, random strips sorted, by color, into my scrap bins, a big bag of dog bed scraps, and a few empty boxes.
Maybe one day
I will have a sewing space
where I can work without frustration.
