I am determined to take care of all the little odds and ends this year. I don't want to use up all my scraps by any means, but I do want to be left with useable bits that can fuel future projects.
It was extremely satisfying to sew tiny leftovers all together and square them up into these 4 inch blocks of random happy scraps. I don't have a plan yet, but at some point I will collect enough in all the colors and turn them into something lovely.
I was surprised as I searched through unfinished projects and block collections at how much I have hanging out in limbo. I tried to update the "My Quilts" tab of my blog with links to help me remember which projects are waiting for attention. I think that I will rotate some of them into project bins. With my sewing space in constant flux right now, being able to pull out an individual bin to work on might make productivity a little easier. I know someday I will have a dedicated sewing space again. I never would have guessed when we downsized houses that everyone would rush home again to shelter in place during an ongoing pandemic. I guess life is full of surprises.
We had a family Minecraft session last night and fun was had by all. My son Ryan got us all accounts as a Christmas present and we have spent many hours all gathered around the kitchen table since then collaborating in our little digital homestead. I was keeping one earbud in and monitoring the events in DC while we played, but that is a story for a different blog.
