Still Quilting.




A pot of cheerful Lachenalia at the back door.


Today I want to declare war on packaging. All I wanted was a new set of sheets and pillow cases and all this is what comes with it. Totally unnecessary. I wish I had left it in the shop....must try that next time.( one could spend hours looking for unpackaged products, but how else do you make a statement that you don't want it ! )(Plastic especially is visual and environmental pollution! ) Any suggestions? What do you do girls?

I'm doing sessions of quilting between chores and cleaning and other events. What I have decided to do on the 4 striped end panels looks really great but it is going to take me hours. Slowly but surely getting there.

I'm with you on the packaging! I have bought that brand of sheets and pillowcases, and the plastic cases make good project bags.

I hate all the packaging too, but where ever possible I reuse it. The plastic cases pillow slips come in make idea waterproofing for small packages, I've used them under brown paper when mailing things. They are especially good if you have a collection of items.

The over packaging issue makes me mad, too. We have free curbside recycling here in our town and usually our bins are overflowing, but that doesn't solve the source of the problem.

I hate over-packaging too. Pillow cases are really easy to make so that could be a solution at least for them.

There is usually way toooo much packaging.

Too much packaging is a nuisance as well as a pollution. I try to recycle where I can, but not always practical.
