wow--that must have been emotional for everyone!
My brother has my dad's helmet that was smashed when his helicopter crashed...he saved his life...
On a happier note, I am glad I joined the quilt block swap as it is making me use up my stash!
I needed a way to store my 2x2 inch scrap squares, so I took that plastic needlwork stuff, a tin box and made something that will work. Scraps are organized based on color.
Little strip scraps are then grouped together to make coasters. My brother loves to steal my coasters so I always have a few sets ready for when he comes to visit. He likes giving them to friends and random strangers...he is a bit odd:
I usually keep one from each set:
Too small sized pieces are sewn onto any kind of thin cardboard, folders, paper, etc. I will use these for notecards or
other small art projects...
Finally, after cutting the above, any leftovers are used to make my mosaic notecards...yeah, I can't throw anything out!
