I've made some room for sewing things by moving out some of my old scrapbooking supplies. It's been so very long since I did any scrapbooking at all. I haven't gotten rid of it all yet, but at least it all together and can be sorted through in time. So in one side of the craft desk I put 2.5 inch squares. that seems to be the size I use most, and having them handy might work? There is a little set of drawers that goes along with the desk and I put the WIP/UFOs that did not have a home. The top drawer is Farmer's Wife. The middle holds the parts for the Dear Jane border (center blocks are all finished). The bottom has OMG/Churn dash blocks. I did a count on those while I was tidying, and I am pretty darn close to having enough blocks.
The middle drawer has small cutting mats and miscellaneous supplies, while the cubbies on the left side hold all my notions. Maybe if they have a handy home they won't always be on the desk top? Time will tell on that one.
For now, I think I've had enough organization. I haven't sewn a stitch in days. The inverted stars are all pinned and ready to sew. Maybe I can get another top ready to go?
it is good to have a sort out once in a while,, I got rid of lots of things including over 100 books that I sold, must have already bought at least 30 new ones since have told myself no books in 20i6, that will not last long!
You are going to hit the new year all ready to go into the stitching mode! Good work to take inventory now!
It will be so relaxing to start stitching after all the organizing. Have a very Merry Christmas.
Being organized in the sewing room really does make it a lot easier to get things done. My sewing room will be getting an overhaul as well but not yet. I hope you were able to get the top finished and ready to go...you have accomplished so much over the past several days!
I love organizing fabrics, so inspiring!
Wow, love to see all those 2,5" squares organized. I need to organize my room for the comming new year. Happy holiday season!
Margaret, where and how did you sell your quilt books? I sold a few at a garage sale our local quilt shop had, but have lots more to get rid of. I have donated some to the library sale and newer ones that they will add to their collection.
