Am I Crazy?

I felt like I had to organize before I started any more projects.  So I took this (a box for each color, a box of Christmas fabrics, a box of batiks, and a box of novelty/other fabrics)

and folded and organized and pulled out pieces that were smaller than a fat quarter, to this...

And with all the scraps....

I cut up into 5", 3 1/2" and 2" squares for Scrap Therapy and this is what I got

to add to all my other boxes of cut up scraps.

So, am I crazy?  Or just organized?  Should I be really crazy and sort by color too?  I unfortunately don't have time for that.  Oh, if you need any squares of a particular color for your scrap quilts, let me know.  I have enough scraps to make alot of scrappy quilts.

I will now start working on the guild's Opportunity Quilt.  I was asked to machine quilt this beautiful quilt - and I AM NERVOUS.  This quilt top is exquisite and it demands custom quilting...and they entrusted that to me.    I will have to take time off to get my Christmas gifts done, and some other small projects. Luckily I wasn't given much of a deadline - they want it by January. 

And just because they are so cute, here are my 3 dogs basking by the stove to keep warm.   Oh, and the Jack Russell automatically goes to the small basket.  He loves it even though he looks too big for it.  It's quite funny especially since the smallest dog goes to the biggest sleeping bag blanket. 


Happy Quilting.

Barbara,

You are not crazy - you are just organized -- would you come by and organize for me too?! ;) I wish I were half as good as you are!!

Thank you for visiting and leaving the kind comment. I am glad to make your acquaintance.

You go girl! I am so impressed by your tenacity! That is a LOT of time & diligence to cut all those squares- no wonder your left arm is sore. I get overwhelmed when I look at my sewing room but I am hoping today I can get some organizing completed. I would also like to weed out things for the auction. I keep thinking "Oh, but I'll need that if/when I do this art quilt or this technique!" but when is that going to happen?

I think you are very clever to cut out squares from those scraps .... they will be at hand when an idea strikes.

No, you're not crazy...I do that every so often too...just stop and organize before going any further!
