In the sewing room today, and a great idea!

Another secret distorted photo of a project that had to be distorted even more cause it was showing tooooooo much, plus a little under the needle! Intrigued? lol... 8-)
This is what I've been working on today... Yup! Another PIF! I hope to get them all done and mailed out before the Christmas mail rush...
Big time hoping... 8-)

A wonderful "Recycle, Reuse" idea that I read on Shelly's newsletter from Keepers Quilts, a local quilt shop... Shelly says that she read about the idea on a website, but doesn't recall where... At any rate, whoever came up with this idea, Thanks! 8-)

"Here's a great way to throw your scraps out without feeling guilty. Using an old pillowcase line a garbage bin with it. While you are sewing, throw your scraps of fabric into the pillowcase. When the pillowcase is 2/3's full, sew the pillow case shut and take it down to your local animal shelter. They make great beds for the cats and dogs. They are 100% washable and nice and soft for the animals! The pillow can also be taken home with the animal and helps provide them with a settling in "nest"."

Have a great Sunday!

Wow...great idea for the scraps. I'm sure many animals will be happy with this if people read your hint and start making them. If it's okay with you, I may put that hint on my blog at some point, too.

That's a great idea for using small scraps. I'll be off to the MCC for old pillow cases on Tuesday.

Oh...I love that idea Myra! I have given myself a time frame of one year. If my fabric is not used up in one year I am going to donate it to someone who can make good use of it. Well......we will see when the year is up if I can really do that!
