t was so wonderful to see you last week. Some of us little bits have been stuck way
down in the bottom of our purple container for years and years. We thought maybe you had forgotten about us
and did not love us anymore. A couple of
the littlest guys tried to run away and hide, but you muttered something about
a puppy finding us. We were sure sorry when you scooped every last bit up
and put us back in the bin, but we were kind of scared of the puppy. Is that that thing that barks a lot? She sure is noisy.
feeling a little sad that some of us had to go into a white garbage bag. However, we had been so smashed together
before, it was nice to stretch out a bit. We hope the ones in the bag do not get thrown away by accident!
I bet you do not even remember what projects some of us are
scraps from! And some of us are not even
leftovers – we are abandoned and orphaned blocks. We sure hope you come back and visit us again
someday. Even though we cannot see the
rest of your fabric and quilts, we can hear. We know that you are starting to
make more scrap quilts and think you should probably spend some time with us
and see if you could use some of us. A
lot of our members are really quite big and even most of the smallest are
We understand you are busy with lots of projects; we just
want to make sure you do not forget about us for another couple of years.
The Scraps in the Big Purple Bin
p.s. Is it true that there is another bin just like ours
that is also full of scraps? Maybe you need to put us all together in one place and see if any of us would work well
together. We would sure like to meet the
rest of our cousins and other relations.
