This is the way I keep my fabric. Folded on boards is so much neater and easier to see and use. I used to have it all folded. As you can see from the pictures below.
There are many other ways to store fabric but this is how I do it and it works for me.

Anyway, I was surprised when I saw this movie. Keanu did a very, very good job- I mean really awesome job. The scene where he reads the last letter, with the gift, from his wife made me want to console him as I felt so bad for Wick. This scene , for me, showed how Keanu has grown as an actor.
The physical scenes he did were terrific and he was very convincing as a bad ass.
I won't tell you how the movie goes since you should go and see it yourself. Fantastic fights with or without guns. Michael Nyqvist and William Defoe costarring and do a terrific job.
I hope Keanu continues his great work. I was really impressed as was my son who saw him only in Dracula and Bill and Ted.
Now about the pretty boy image. Keanu is now 50. I am happy to say he has lost that pretty boy look and he is just absolutely a beautiful man.

This is how I keep my fabric scraps that are almost a fat quarter or less. Many of these are almost empty since I use a lot of scraps for quilts. There are many ways to organize but this is the method that works for me. I bought these containers at the Dollar Store.
I actually got this idea from Fabric Therapy. She has her entire collection of fabrics, fat quarters, strips, projects, etc. all organized, labeled and neatly stacked in her sewing room. It is fantastic how organized her sewing room is. She has five parts to it and you have to see it. Fabric Therapy
I've previously blogged about her here
I've also previously blogged about scrap organization here
I also have in 3 colored small bins to put scraps too small(small strips) to go in the other containers for making blocks. The red bin containers scraps that are for red, black, pink and orange colors. Blue is for blue, purple and combos of those colors. Green container for green, yellow and combos of those colors.
For really small pieces of ribbon, lace and fabric I use mason jars. These pieces are used for my scrap bracelets.
I hope this helps you organize your scraps.
