New Year Organization


 
I started off the new year with a little bit of organization.  The strips weren't getting used effectively in a separate bin, so I pulled them out to integrate them back with their colors.  

Here are some of the newly tidied drawers of scraps.  I made labels!

 Then I spent some time taking in inventory of ongoing projects. They are now sorted into hanging flimsies ready to be quilted, bags of blocks ready to be sewn together....
 and best of all, project boxes of blocks being pieced for ongoing projects.  I have dutifully updated the My Quilts tab to list all the projects I found.
With the strips duly distributed, I had an open bin for the new RSC18 Sampler Quilt.  Here are some of the blue strips I was auditioning for "Squared Away".  Now that all of that is done, I think there might be some actual sewing on the horizon.
We had chicken pot pies for dinner and are waiting for  Anna to return home from her volunteering.  Ryan and Sydney were kind enough to join us for a family card game before disappearing again to the wilds of upstairs.  Kurt is back to work tomorrow, but the rest of us still have a week of vacation to enjoy.  Guess what I have planned?

I'm doing some of the same in my sewing room, but it will take me a while. It's always good to start with a clean room and an idea of what you want to get done. Wishing you a very successful 2018.

Looks fantastic Angela. I have been doing this in 'spits and fits' and though I haven't labelled, I did find some baskets in the appropriate colours...still looking for a red one - I am sure they will be found in abundance in February. I look forward to the SAL with you and Mari and all of the RSC faithful. Enjoy your studio time.

It's a good time to get organized. I spent some time cutting strips from my blue stash today, too!
