Did you notice the little brown basket/thread catcher? My dear friend, Shell made it for me. I love it! It works out so well for me to put my little threads and snips in. I can't believe that I didn't have one of these before. LOL!
I have also been cutting strips of various sizes out of my scrap basket. I have a quilt that I plan on making soon that has a million 1.5" strips in it so I am cutting 1.5", 2", and 2.5" strips. Those are sizes that I will eventually use anyway. Actually, the 2.5" strips is what I can cut my Windmills out of. I still have several more to cut out of the basket.
