Treasure Hunting

This is my trash can by my cutting table:


The one by my ironing board:


And the one near where I sew:


This is the can I use for leftover 2 1/2” strips. It was a gift from Lauren.


I bet you know where this is going…

The last couple of days, I have been cleaning out my sewing room. I threw out lots of stuff.  My husband came up and offered to take out the trash.  (I was downstairs taking a break).  In his defense, Michael asked me if I wanted to get rid of ALL of it and I said yes.

Later yesterday afternoon I went back up to finish and I saw a bag in the Hershey can. I put two and two together and shrieked.

The good news is the trash does not go out until Monday.  The even better new is Michael had put all my “trash” into a separate garbage bag.  I think I got most of the strips back and I will now label my Hershey can.

Now you may be asking do all those trash cans keep my sewing room cleaner? No, they do not.

Today I cut out and started piecing Month 9 of my Civil War Quilt. It is a doozey but I only have to make 4. The center half square triangles are together. I am catching up!



Tonight is the big ACC game between SU and Duke.  Michael says we have a good chance. Let’s go Orange!
