Scraps Make a Mess
My sewing room was a mess after pulling scraps and stash last month. I had hoped it might look like I had made a good dent in it all but..Na, lot even close :(
Since everything was upside down anyway I figured I would try to tweak some of the organizing I had going on. After two days of work it looks worse now than when I started. I do however see a light at the end of the tunnel. I almost have a handle on all of the magazines and patterns. The scraps are back in there rightful tubs. The majority of fabric has been wrapped an tucked back in place. I sat last night for FOUR and a HALF hours to cleaned up the PC embroidery files.
My plan for tomorrow is to concentrate all day on the sewing room, I might not get it all done but by golly I am going to stick with it. I think the only way to make a good dent in all the fabric is to get going on some quilt tops. I pulled out a few scrappy patterns that just might help some. Hope to also start working on a new charity sewing project using only what I have on hand.
Thinking about even walking in a fabric store right now turns my stomach. I MUST recover quickly as we have our GF mountain trip coming up at the end of the month. There is such a sweet quilt store there that I would like to take a peek in :)
The other downfall I have found is patterns! Oh my. Many/most are from magazines or online quilt alongs. Oh ya, and books, sew many sewing books with pages tagged of must do's that haven't been done. Fat quarters....I have a plan for you too!!
Please tell me I am not the only one that is being overrun by fabric and patterns!!
