"Y" as in Why

WHY am I saving a drawer full of old, and I mean old freezer paper templates?  And WHY am I saving a fabric applique, a "y"?  WHY?
Would I think some day I  would need a "y", and think, oh, I have one in my freezer paper drawer, I'll save time and find it.  And the fabric just happens to be perfect.
I won't tell you that I found more fabric applique, a "p" and a "h".
Not WHY this time, but WHAT was I trying to spell.

  1. That is funny, I have never saved those.
    I save some templates that I make with poster board.

  2. I used to save my templates like this but when I reorganized my quilting room, I got rid of a bunch of these.
    But I'll bet just when I need one, I won't have it now!

  3. I'm not a saver. Probably because I'm not organized and it takes me longer to find it than it does to make a new one!

  7. I save the same sorts of things . . . when you go to all the trouble in the first place, it only makes sense. Maybe you were spelling 'phooey'

  8. It took me years but I finally learned how to throw things away. It actually makes me feel better to weed out stuff I don't need anymore and then I have more room for goodies! :)

  10. You were trying to spell happy! :D I do the same thing! I have a big bag full of the tiniest scraps of fabric because you know........ I just might need that piece that is less than an inch in some scrappy applique... :D
