Didn't get to the Shady Lanes sashing fabric that I wanted to cut out. Didn't make crumb blocks. Didn't make string blocks. I got distracted... I started out to make crumb-along blocks, but about the time I pulled the 30th skinny strip out of the jumble that is the crumb pile, I lost patience with the whole mess and sat down to sort the entire bin.
I pulled out all the skinny little strips, and put them in a separate container. These are the ones I'm joining and subcutting for my next crumb project as leaders n' enders. I've already built up quite a pile of 1.5" wide subcuts.
I threw out a few handfuls of bits that are really too small to be bothered even trying to sew. And this is what is left in the crumb bin. I can actually see the sides of the bin, and the bottom. Not to worry, as I trim those scraps from the big scrap bin, this thing is sure to fill up in no time.
And as I sorted, I found quite a pile of partially formed crumb blocks that I lost track of in earlier crumb piecing sessions. They ended up at the bottom of the jumble - probably from fluffing the mass in search of colours and specific sizes.
And by the time I was done with all that, it occurred to me that if I wanted to watch the World Series game 2 tonight, that maybe I should attach the binding on my next UFO quilt so I could have some hand stitching to do. I have two quilts still waiting for binding. One is huge and I want to make bias striped binding for it, so I chose a smaller Christmas colours lap quilt. It's been sitting in the waiting for binding pile for a couple of years. I wasn't sure about this binding until I had it attached. There's no black in my quilt top. But now, I'm really liking how the gold lines curl around the quilt edge. Just as well, since I have no intention of unsewing it now that it's attached.
No plan for tomorrow. I think I'll just wing it - wait to see what I feel like doing. No plan and nothing gets done... too many gotta-do lists in a row and it starts feeling like household chores. There's got to be a happy medium in there somewhere.
