I sewed strips around 10" long, using up a whole bin full...
Now the rather tedious job of trimming! These will go away for a couple of years I expect, until the bin is full again. There will be a different colour batch of crumbs, so I will be able to mix the strips up before I sew them. This batch had a lot of pink (sisters choice), brown (hexies) and black and white in.
I have also sewn in a lot of papers lately whilst watching TV. I have done so may thousands over the years I can sew and fold without looking now.
I was doing a few in the dentist waiting room the other day, it's funny how people will watch you but if you look up and smile they look away embarrassed! Older men will speak to me more often, saying they remember their grans doing it. As one chap last week said, "At least you're not fiddling with your phone!" What did we do before mobile phones? We read a magazine or just relaxed whilst we waited I suppose (though maybe not at the DENTIST), without feeling to need to pretend to connect with an environment other than the one we are actually in! Sometimes we even talked to a stranger, shock!
