I wonder what can be done with leftover slats from a Venetian blind. I can't bear to throw them away. Same with leftover scraps of fabric. At least now I have learned to be ruthless with things nobody wanted to eat in the first place.

Odd pieces of wood or fabric (or paint) trail clouds of glory though. I used to love going through scraps when I was a child, and we considered it a privilege, chose favorites, folded them carefully to put back. Skeins of embroidery silks too - all in the absence of television. It certainly stood me in good stead.
