Confessions Of A Scrap Addict wrote a very intriguing blog post this morning.
She was talking directly to me!
How did she know that I have a serious, overwhelming problem.
I am out of control.
I cannot toss a scrap.
I want to blame someone but I am the one to blame.
No one else.

This stuff is a challenge for me.)
This is the top of my string big.
This is the side view of my string bin.
One of them.

This is my table top string bin.
My goal is to empty it.
Use each string until it is gone.
Then grab the next and the next.
After reading Sarah's post, I decided I needed a plan.
In September for National Sewing Month,
I sewed every day.
September 25, 2015 was the last day I made a string block.
I made 5 early this morning.
I will make 5 later on today.
( I don't want to fall behind on March 2nd.)
I plan to make 5 a day, every day in March.
If I do that,
I will add 155 3" string blocks to my collection.
What will I do with them?
Oh no worries about that.
These make awesome borders for string quilts,
fun quilts like Bonnie's Love Shack that I will make someday.
But not today.
I have to empty that string bin down some first!
So I am going to do like Sarah and
challenge myself every month to get my scraps under control.
I have a good plan for March,
I'll have a good plan for April.
I'll have a good plan for......
you get the idea.
Wish me luck, I'm headed into the abyss.
