Last year, I started saving these organic
spinach containers for the purpose of starting
I collected way more than I needed.
They just kept stacking up in my pantry
until one day...
a friend dropped off 3 black trash bags full
of yummy, delicious, unwanted fabric!
"I have no use for these, could you use them?"
Questioned my friend.
"Could I use them?"
"You bet my dear!"
I replied with excitement.
As I unpacked the fabrics, some were small pieces,
some were many yards of the same fabric, some were
beautiful and some not so beautiful.
The "uglies" I put back in the bags and sent them
off to a land far far away.
The "keepers" were sorted and organized.
This is when my recycled containers came in handy.
I reached for those spinach containers and...
brushed up on my kindergarten skills of
sorting and organizing.
Look at those tasty reds...
and these soothing blues...
and these sunshiny yellows...
(oops, it's either time for a new camera or
time for some photography lessons. Some of
my yellows turned pink during the photographing
and pretty pinks...
and perky purples...
I won't show you my greens...
you know, the camera didn't cooperate again.
Don't they look kind of spiffy now?
Now they're ready to stack and place in the
to be sewn into a gorgeous quilt.
My larger pieces were sorted and organized into
my larger bins. Perhaps I can show you some of
those next time.
Have a blessed weekend my friends,
