Still Struggling with Technology and a Surprise Gift


I made the mistake of volunteering to sort out some scraps that were donated to my patchwork group.

They were going to be put in the rubbish, which was a terrible waste, so I said I would organise them into more manageable units. 

I firstly put them into bundles according to colour. Then started by ironing each piece and then cutting it. I soon became obvious that there was a lot of unusable scrap but I can't stop now. I still have 2 bags to go.   Then I will sew them together myself as I now have a couple of ideas about how this could be done.

I now have a hand brace for my right hand.  Still lots of things I can not do but I can type, some hand sewing and machining, so things are looking up.

Ideas just don't stop coming, do they!

I am sure I will be sorry I started this!

The start you have made might inspire others if you want to hand the strips of fabric over to someone else...
