Well, I've made some progress at the sewing station end of my room, and have a couple of before and after pics, just to prove that it can be done.
In addition to getting these 2 areas cleaned up, I did some scrap taming, as well. I put on Michael Card's "Joy in the Journey" album, which has 18 songs on it, all of which I love, all of which I was happily singing along to this afternoon. While this album played, I gave myself the task of cutting down scraps into various sized squares and strips, mostly 2 1/2 inch, 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch. Whatever didn't fit into those sizes went into crumbs, strings, or garbage. When the album was done, I was done, and able to go onto something else. So I now have a lot more squares to use as leaders and enders, and strips to make into other quilts. Then, this evening, I dug into those crumbs, and strings, and as yet untrimmed scraps, and started making more string pieced wedges for UFO #5. There will be a more detailed post about that sometime soon. As long as I don't turn around and look at the other end of the room, I can pretend that all is neat and tidy. But not so, there is a lot left to do, but it's a start.
