My intent with some of the smaller pieces of batting, and some of these odd fabrics, was to make pads for cat/dog shelters and my cats' vet. I still could, I just don't know that I'll ever get to it. I've a lot of 'good intentions' and pretty poor follow-through. I had other thoughts of using some of the batting to make place mats and/or pot holders. The local guild makes placemats for the senior home.

The guitar will be Nick's whenever he leaves home if he wants it. I have a picture of him with it when my Mom first brought it out and showed it to him when we were there one summer.
What do you do with your batting scraps? Are you frugal and try to piece them together for your utility quilts? Do you save them for that some day project? Do you throw them out without regret or the thought that they could be used? I certainly don't want any more! I'd like to rid myself of much of this, but I'm just not sure. If I were truly ruthless, I'd just toss them into my trash bin and be done with it. Please don't suggest I give it to the guild...some of it came from there for a specific project that was done, and they don't want it back. At the very least, a good portion of it needs to leave the closet, but right now, I've no where else to put it with a garage full of stuff that needs to be picked up...and all I need to do there is make a phone call and schedule it...that should be my goal for Monday! Make the call!
