Raiding the Scraps!





















It appears that a Little Boy has raided my scrap bin!!! And, yes - we did find a safer place to play than the top of the stairs. I must admit - I never thought to just turn the scrap bin upside down - there are some interesting scraps in the bottom of that pile! And, we did have fun picking through some of novelties! And, now - thankfully, I have it all put away, it is almost bath time and then bed time and THEN maybe Momma can sit down and knit a few rows on her scarf!!!  Posted by Picasa

maybe that is what we all need to do with the scrap bags and baskets--up end them! Might be a bit like turning the compost heap--get the good stuff mixed up and to the top?

Kids love scraps. It's a fact. I give big bags of scraps to my grandchildre. I have to say, though, their mother's aren't so crazy about them after a couple of days of wading through bits of fabric all through the house. Lol.

Little boy was just showing how to properly choose pieces in a true scrap quilt-dump and take from the top of the pile, whatever comes to hand! Smart boy. And.....you can be grateful that it wasn't the button box he upended! LOL

Wow, you do have an interesting way of going through your scraps, thanks to your helper! Sometimes dumping them all out is the best method--but it takes nerve!

ah, such wonderful help! Wonder what treasures were hiding at the botom?
