Don’t throw away, if You do get to that stage, first ask your local primary school or secondary school art/textiles department.2 boxes sorted this morning 4 to go and then I have easy access to the bookcase and cubbies - I know that one of the boxes is full of scraps of fabric and am not sure what to do with them. I did consider making strips from each piece (nothing less than 2.5" in any direction though!) and when I have time making a Chinese coin quilt
View attachment 501528 View attachment 501529 Maybe something like these, when I have the time and inclination.
The alternatives are the bin or trying to sell "patchwork scrap bags" on ebay or giving away bags of scraps. Perhaps I should take that box down to Mum and Dad's and I can cut the strips as therapy to my frustration at the situation.

Wow. Never throw crafty bits away. The quilt looks exciting.
Our local hospital has a box in the foyer for crafty bits/buttons etc., for the dementia blankets mentioned before on here.
You sound very organised. Puts me to shame. :0
They do look adorable, will you keep their names? I'm sure you will give them the love & affection they need.Hi Helen
If you're interested, look on Meadowgreen Dog Rescue website - and on page three of the dogs listed you will find Tilly and Lilly. There is a write-up too. I can't wait.
One way to use smaller scraps
Goodness gracious me!!!
Good night Movan xxHi Marilyn, MarilynMonroe , nice to see you posting here.
Your poppy is lovely... Looked quite intricate.... Mine were VERY basic.
I havn't brought my craft stuff in the van..... so may have a really early night all.. A group playing in the pub nearby... I say playing not playing music... They are awful. Looks like not much sleep tonight.
Night all. X
It is also World Gin DayThis Saturday (12 June) is Worldwide Knit in Public Day and we know that people are thinking of getting out in the good weather for Covid-compliant yarnie get-togethers.
Knitting and crochet has helped so many of us cope with lockdowns over the past year or so but we have missed meeting up in person in knitting groups. WWKIP Day seems like a great opportunity to get together for picnics, meet in gardens or to sit outside pubs and cafes to share our love of crafting.
Sus3v Oooh I likes that! The colours are lovely, I think I'll get you to pick the colours for my next project, that's an art in itself. I have just started Knitcraft Water Garden and I could see a few hexagons in yours that would fit nicely into mine.
Offagain Have you any photos of your Persian Tiles which you are doing in one variegated yarn? I'd like to see the effect if it saves darning in all those ends
