I found them everywhere. Like dust bunnies, they multiply! I haven't paid enough attention to them in a long while, now they require some serious attention. Giving it some real thought it is going to be a lot of fun to revisit some of the projects these scraps were instrumental in being a part of in the first place just finding them. Now I need more of those zip lock bags, a dark permanent marker, my rotary cutter, ruler, and some time.
