I try to be organized, really I do, but my best laid plans sometimes goes astray. I keep a lot of "valuable" stuff that is related to my quilting construction. Small pieces of tear away, fusibles, freezer paper etc. I have designated a drawer in a cabinet for these items, along with other paper and pencil type items. I keep the small items cut from other projects in a labeled expanding folder for ready access. Well, sometimes some of those items will just be tossed in the drawer to be "filed" when I have the time. Yesterday I went to find some freezer paper for applique and the drawer was in disarray. Bits and pieces of different products, along with a surprise. tangled among the papers was various left over pieces and spools of binding. Becoming a little frustrated with trying to untangle my mess and muttering "why did I put binding in here and this is not what I want to be doing right now" I started pulling all the binding out, got my freezer paper and rearranged the other items into their respective homes and closed the drawer.
While browsing through the strips of binding, I notice that a lot of the pieces are in my strips drawers for cutting into scrap quilts, so my decision is to sewing them all together and make scrap binding for my next scrap quilt or more likely my next 10 scrap quilts. I'm going to roll it like a ball of yarn and keep adding to it. As time allows I will rescue the binding from the overflowing binding drawer and keep adding to my ball of binding that will reside in a basket next to my sewing machine for ready access. Isn't there a place that houses the largest ball of twine somewhere? Maybe I will have the largest ball if binding someday. Keep a smile on your face and enjoy your journey.
