Keeping Focus

Monday and it is only three more days until Christmas.  We made it to the post office, and I had some free time today to do what I wanted. 

I worked on folding fabrics to put away.

I cut up scraps into the scrap system.  I actually got quite a bit cut up and put away which was nice.  It barely put a dent into my boxes of scraps on the floor though, which had exploded while I was making Christmas gifts.   Every time I go into the attic to look for something I find a box of scraps. 

I did work on the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt, part 1.  After all day long, I had managed to accomplish only 80 HST which are all trimmed at least!  Obviously I need to keep my focus better to get more accomplished. 
I still have 200 more of these babies to go!  Then I can start to work on the broken dishes blocks. 


  1. What scrap "system" do you use? BH's?? I kind of hate to pre-cut a lot as I always then find that I need a bigger piece. Hugs, glad you had time to do some sewing room sork...hugs, Julierose

  3. Yeah for you on getting going on the mystery quilt ! Today's clue is easy and fast. I do the scrap system too, every time I finish a project I do that and it seems to be working. I spent 3 days when I started it.

  4. You have a lot of fabric! I need to organize mine better but all the bags sis brought me are just sitting on the porch


Thanks for dropping in to visit.
