This is a very interesting subject for a blog hop. I'll be very interested in seeing what others do with their leftovers from a project.
What do you do with the floss, thread, beads, and other elements you have left over from full project kits?
I don't often use kits. Not because I dislike the idea of kits. It's just that I have enough charts and patterns to keep me busy forever. But I do have a fair amount of them. Okay, I have a lot of them, I'll admit it. If I like the design, I'll get the kit. Simple as that. And I use all the elements in the kit. I'm basically cheap and hate the idea of wasting the fabric and the floss. But the leftovers? I have to be honest, I don't save the leftover floss. I just add it to my ort ball that I've had since 1992. Wow! That's over 20 years ago. If it's a Mill Hill kit, I'll sort any leftover beads and store them for later use. Other beads just stay in their little bags and get stuck in a drawer somewhere. I usually just toss the needles. By the time I'm done with them, they're unusable.
