I think there are about 1200 hexies in that box now. When I started cutting a few days ago there were only 700. So, progress.
Sorting by color though? Eep. Definitely Twilight Zone. Sort all day, still have serious tonnage left to sort. Sort all the next day, find another bag of scraps. Sort three more days (as time permits of course), start to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Thirty-three bags of color sorted scraps are pictured above. I think that's everything. A scrap sewing station will be set up soon somewhere - I may have to throw away the refrigerator to make room for it, but it isn't going in my studio. No. Absolutely not.
