When I move from my sewing room to my new workstation, there won't really be a convenient place for this basket, which I've been using as a scrap basket for years. So this past weekend, I started getting rid of the scraps in it, cutting them to square (or sorting strips)...
Eventually, after lots of trimming, we have some piles of squares in varying sizes to go in my little squares drawers.
And an empty basket to use for something else. (Holding magazine in the living room, I think.)
And of course, a scrap basket replacement, as I can't do without entirely. This one will fit on the work surface, or perhaps in time, on a shelf in a cupboard, if I get rid of a shoebox of UFOs or two (I don't have that many shoebox projects - most of my "UFOs" are either tops waiting for borders or to be quilted (or donated) or sets of blocks waiting to be assembled into tops. You can see, there are scraps in it again already!
