I Cannot Begin to Tell You . . .

how boring my life has become. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Here are two. You'll be very glad I spared you an additional 1,879 boring words.


This is the pile of Thimbleberries scraps remaining on the Sweat Shop floor. Up until tonight, getting past that pile was a little like a cross between pole vaulting and doing the long jump.


Over 800 5" charm squares so far. I still have the scraps on the floor, a bag of red scraps, and a bag of mostly brown scraps to cut up.

If I don't post tomorrow night, it's because I have even less to say. And someone might want to come take my rotary cutter away from me before I get crazy. Just sayin'.

I've got to tell you that I'm impressed. If you want a change of scenery, you can come here to start cutting up my scraps. That is one huge stack of charms. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Ok, I just have comment -- I live 40 miles from Mrs. Thimbleberries -- I've been to her studio/office/think tank (it's nice) and she has less than you (and I hate to admit this --- me)

Kim, you need a good film on the TV or some music on to cut to. That'll relieve the boredom. :)

over 800 5" charm squares. IMPRESSIVE! I would have given up after the first 50. :)

Oh my! Such goodness though~ you will be so happy with yourself when you want to just grab some charms and start a project. Way to cut!! :-)

I'm impressed! You have way more patience than I do, all my scraps just get tossed in bins that I dig through whenever I'm looking for something, I have 4 of them and I have never made it to the bottom of any of them. You are a goddess!

Kris said...

Yeah. Those rotary cutters are dangerous! Might need a SWAT team to wrestle it from you.

My word for you is "Persevere"!! Last summer I was highly encouraged (due to children moving in and out) to move and clean my sewing room. Every piece of fabric was washed, ironed, and then sorted by color and size. Some of my ugly fabric I cut into squares and/or strips. This was a long project. But know I love my sewing room. Everything is in the right place. So to you Kim - persevere. You can see your finish line, Barbara from GA
