Weekend Project....

What's a girl to do on a weekend these days?  I decided that I would take a couple of hours to do some clean up in my sewing room.  That pile of "stuff" was making me crazy!
 Oh boy, did I ever find a lot of interesting things.  Mostly "leftovers"from past project.  But there were a few little piles of fabric that I had bought for projects that I haven't worked on yet. 
 After I sorted everything out, I put it all away, right now I'm trying to focus on finishing up what I've already started - not starting new projects.  At least for a little while!
 That little white bin is what I throw scraps into for making strip quilts.  Well it seems that pile was not just strips - so I spent a couple hours pressing and cutting into strips and squares for the other bins.  I didn't get all the way through it, but I did manage to cut it down to about half size. Maybe in a couple weeks I'll start some strip blocks for a fun scrappy quilt.  But first, I have a few more projects that I need to work on, so I need to stay focused!
Now my view is much better, so I think it will help keep me from being distracted while I do a lot of sewing.  My April challenge for Island Batik is almost finished, and I can't wait to share it!  I just love it, and had so much fun working on this one - it seems like every month I have a new favorite collection.  I think you will, too!
