Many thanks to Sherri at A Quilting Life for hosting this productive and fun series. The time it took to go through everything in my sewing room and organize it was time well spent.
Here is the finish…
Day 11: Sort and Organize Quilting Books
Day 12: Sort and Organize Patterns
Day 13: Sort and Organize Magazines
I possess very few of the above in hard copy but what I do have was placed in these handy banker’s boxes and binders.
The embroidery designs that I have on CDs are stored in this little box.
Day 14: Plan Quilt Storage
This is easy. If it is a table runner or topper then it is kept in a drawer in my china cabinet. Larger quilts are kept in a linen closet (you really do not want to see a picture of that right now).
Day 15: Make your shopping list
The only items I needed were the bins I bought at Walmart to store stabilizers and supplies for making bags.
Day 16: Take a final review
Here we were to re-evaluate what would stay, what would go and also the lists we made on Day 2. Well, I’m keeping everything…even those rulers that I do not know what to do with. However, I did make a plan. I ‘calendared’ projects to be done, leaving myself the weekends for something new.
I changed my mind about keeping zippers in the little wooden box. I took those and other notions that I do not use very often and organized those in a large Tupperware container.
Day 17: Donate or sell items you won’t use
Nothing from me here J
Day 18: Revise your project “to do” list
I simply ‘prioritized’ my list.
Day 19: Shop for needed items
Day 20: Take an ‘after’ photo
Now I am back in business. First up is a another project from my favorite book…
Enjoy your weekend, you know where I will be J
