Scraps, scraps

Don't you just wish you had enough time to use all of your ideas and stash? I sometimes think I'll have to will my stash to someone. Even when I do something that's designed to clear it up I find myself with more bits that I can't toss quite yet. I have a friend who had a most favorite fabric and she used it bit by bit till she had a fingernail sized piece and then used that! It reminds me of the book Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback. A tailor had a large wool overcoat that was torn and worn. So he cut it down to a jacket and when that grew worn he cut it down to a vest and when that was worn he cut it down to a scarf and then a necktie, a handkerchief and then a button to hold his suspenders.
