Sherri’s Summer Organizing Series over at AQuilting Life is well under way.
Day 6: Notions
I only pulled the items that I used the most and organized those such that they can be placed in easy to reach places…I’ll save some words and just show you the finished photos for this task.
Zippers, extra rotary cutter blades
Marking tools, pins, needles and thimbles
Bottled items, alcohol & q-tips to clean the machine, tape
Everything will stack on shelves or be placed close to the sewing table
I have TONS more notions that will be organized by type and then bagged or boxed and stored in a large Tupperware container. I’ll show you what I am talking about when the room is back in order.
I mentioned last week that I had received some mail and I’d like to share it with you know.
Do you know Gene Black? He is an artist, quilter (sews other things as well) and weaver. His creativity goes beyond my wildest dreams. Oh, and he happens to live in my home state of Alabama.
When I saw some of the scarves Gene had made I knew I
needed really wanted one.
I am an Auburn fan, all things blue and orange. If anyone could understand that, it would be a
fellow Alabamian. Therefore, I emailed
Gene and shared a few details of what I wanted.
Within a very short time I received this…
Gene made it so it is very light weight and I can wear it here in South Florida. Even though college football is a fall sport, we do not enjoy that change in weather here. THANK YOU GENE….YOU ALREADY KNOW I LOVE IT!!!
Our dear friend Sinta at a Pink Pincushion sold her home and is getting ready to move. (How exciting… a new sewing room and all) In her packing up she uncovered some lovely vintage aprons. Even though I did not win one of her giveaways, she kindly sent me one anyway. Love her to pieces! Check out this cute pink and white apron.
Thank you so much Sinta, I am honored and I absolutely adore this treasure.
I’m still waiting for Sherri’s next assignment so check back later for more organizing progress.
