Finally, the work area is clean and tidy. This morning it looks very empty, but I am sure that will change very quickly.
During the clear up, the pile of scraps seemed to grow, and although it's been a very short time since I last used them, there were rather a large pile. I got some 2 1/2" squares (all black and white, so that has me thinking) and the rest I used for crumb blocks. Unfortunately, I may have been sewing lots of strips but only one crumb block was the result. Never mind, I do now have a clear space to think and work in.
Plans for a sewing spree may have to be put on hold for a couple of days, I have a pair of gloves to knit. They need to be started today, and I have to take Daniel shopping for clothes, which is not an easy task. Hopefully, there will be time for a small sewing project, but you'll have to come back and see.
