Let's Bind It!
I am going to make a list of summer projects to have on hand, ready to make when the opportunity arises. I hope to make good use of my scraps and stash. The plan is to turn some of those fabrics into items I can give to the ones who mean so much to me. There's nothing as special as a gift made with love. I plan to use my free time wisely this summer. With a bit of luck (and the list I made suggested for right-brained people to keep me on track), I bet I can have several wonderful small projects finished and ready for on-the-spot gift giving. And the bonus to all this is that I may use a bit of my overflowing fabric resources and, of course, make room for new!
All the best,
Carolyn S. Vagts
Editor, Quilter's World magazine
