Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

At our house we did a major purge over this last week.  Lots of stuff taken to Goodwill.  I'd been meaning to go through my scrap bins for a while...So last night I started sorting by color and tossing what was just a crumb.
It looked something like this...

Then I wanted to look for a scrap-friendly quilt project.  I flipped through this book.

I found this quilt..

So most of my scrap pile ended up looking like this..

I also realized I have a gingham problem...

I like your "crumb" statement. I have to say, "crumbs" are about all I can bear to toss, LOL! Can't wait to see that quilt - it looks like it will be fabulous! Have a wonderful 2012 - sooo glad we got to know each other!
