Every once in a while, I dive into my scrap bins when they begin to get unruly and straighten them out.
Yes, they are unruly and wild!
Even my dog gets tied up in them!
I go in and sift out the long skinny pieces that really get tangeled up, and find it is usually my old bindings that are misbehaving among my other scraps.
So today's untangling means I get to add to my rug stash.
My rug stash?
Yep! I took all the old bindings and cut them down to 1" strips, and joined them all together to make big, balls of fabric yarn!
Because one of these fine days, I will sit down and start crocheting them into the giant rug, that I want to make...(in my spare time, of course)
I have dreams of it being blues, greens and golds, using up bits and bobs of fabrics from projects I've made, fabrics I purchased and once loved, but now scratch my head wondering why I own it, and even, picking up yardage specifically for this rug.
(Beautiful fabrics loaded with color that will one day rest beneath my size 12 tootsies. )
Will it ever get made?
Am I only dreaming?
But when that itch finally needs to be scratched, I will certainly be ready for it!
And if at least,
It has kept my hands busy while I try to relax with my root beer, for a few moments....
...then I say, CUT IT UP.
It's been totally worth the effort.
