Today

Today ended up being quite a full day, considering that the only thing on the agenda was a soccer game at 9am.  The kids and I ended up also going to the Marine Mammal Center, Rodeo Beach, into Sausalito for ice cream, to Fort Baker to see harbor seals, and I prepped an entire quilt top!  Phew!

We only saw one sea lion in the Marine Mammal Center.  A bunch were being released back into the wild today!  It was our first visit here, which is crazy, considering how many times we’ve been to the beach just down the hill.

After the Marine Mammal Center, we spent a few hours at Rodeo Beach.

Typical beach outing; sweaters and running away from Mommy.

The kids made me a most touching birthday present, a “Monster” made out of clay, sticks, seaweed, crab shells….

Then a dog peed on it.  Such a pity I couldn’t take it home with me…..

At home, I broke into the birthday gift I bought for myself yesterday, a cutting mat and rotary cutter!  I’ve been anxious to make a quilt…

While the kids were watching a movie, I cut a ton of leftover fabric I’ve had in mind for a quilt to keep on the sofa.

Good progress!

And after they went to bed, I finished cutting what I’ve estimated is enough for a good-sized quilt top, +180 squares.

Just a few more than enough squares than I need!

Oh, scraps!  What do you keep, what do you save?

How small is too small to save?  I deemed these trash.

Do you have a size under which you toss the scraps, over which you save them? I tend to think if they’re too small for hair ties or (sewn together as) bias tape, I toss them.  It still feels sad, somehow.  ???

And these were deemed save-worthy, but I don't know...
