Crumb Plans

 

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.

Your crumbs must be pretty small if those crumb blocks are only 4". I do 4.5" and 6.5".

Love your pink crumb blocks, especially arranged light to dark like you've shown in your photo! They look fun to sew! And family Minecraft nights sound like fun, too. Those will be the times to remember!

I made a scrap challenge crumb quilt in 2020. It turned out really awesome and I gave it to my dad for Christmas...he told me it was too pretty to use. Of course no quilt is too pretty to use.

First, I want to complement this site administrator for creating this platform I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
The doctor's email is drutuherbalcure@gmail.com
Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.
Thanks in advance

Beautiful crumbs, Angela. Shaking my head at your current situation. You're so right -- who would've guessed that downsizing should have been put off for a later date. You can never outguess what life has in store for us. Thank you again for being our fearless RSC leader. Such a great group of quilters!

Great crumb blocks. I have been considering doing something similar as my scraps are getting smaller. Also trying to organize scraps as I work through projects this time around.

I love your crumbs! I think I need to take a year to use up 2" strips. My box is overflowing...
