I store them in a jar and periodically I'll pull out a batch, wad it up and attach it to something. What can I do with these cast offs? I can scrunch some together and stitch them to the toes of an art doll or find a place for them in the middle of a stitchery. I can finagle them together in a way that will create a head of hair for an art doll. Or, I can just handle them (they are so soft) and admire the colors that have blended together in this mess of threads.
Sometimes - in fact quite often for me - its the little things that make me happy.
"Success in life is founded upon attention to the small things rather than to the large things; to the every day things nearest to us rather than to the things that are remote and uncommon". - Booker T. Washington
