Yard Sales and Crafting

I spent much of the past week preparing for the "big" yard sale our street was going to have over the weekend. Believe me, I have more than enough things to sell. As I was gathering things up throughout the week, I would return to my craft room (which is overflowing) and tried to find a few things to contribute to the sale. Each time I would pick something up, I heard my inner crafter saying... NO.. you might need that someday! You can't sell that now, wait and sell it online. Yeah right, like that will happen.

Why is it that I have no problem getting rid of clothes, furniture, sentimental items, etc.. but, when it comes to the craft items or fabric, there's always a possible use!! Case in point, I was just about to sell the following two items... some plastic containers and these huge binding rings. The plastic containers were reprieved at the last minute to house my backup cd's (perfect fit!) of digital scrapbooking images... The huge double binding circles, now hold my different rulers. I needed to use both to position the rulers flush with the wall.... It's a sickness I'm telling you! Or do I look at it another way and say.... "I'm doing my part to recycle!!" :-)

I was able to finish all the puffy applique hearts for the quilts. You can't see them all in the photo but 16 puffy applique hearts completed. They are really fast to put together now that I precut the stuffing and the applique design fabric.

Now I need to decide if I want to add one more border on each quilt. It's something that keeps coming to my mind but we'll see if it appears on the quilts.

Thanks for stopping by!
