What to do with all this stuff?

DSCF0405a

I have all these scraps and swatches and false starts piling up, and I don’t want to throw them away, but I don’t know what else to do with them.  They’re sort of inspiring;  little trail markers on the map of my learning, or something.  I like looking at them, but they’re in my way. I sort of want to do a big book, a journal maybe, with all this stuff in it, bound with those huge ring clip things that snap together so the pages can be a mile thick if they need to, or if there’s a big hank of crochet stapled in there.  I’d be all organized, with labeled swatches and detailed information about each project right there in one place.  Wouldn’t that be great?  What do you all do with your leftover bits and swatches?   

Thank you, Fleur, for the lovely award!  I do appreciate it.  Fleur’s blog is beautiful, go see.
