It’s just turned 3:00 p.m. here.  With the exception of breaks for breakfast, shower, lunch, 2 15-minute email checks, and 2 15-minute blog reader checks, a half hour wasted surfing quilt fabric sites, and a couple of “important” interruptions by Mister, I have spent my day entering 439 charts into an excel spreadsheet.

Full-sized charts

I pulled my patriotic designs and Halloween designs put them in a separate piles to create a box each specifically for them, plus I pulled some charts that I want to work on in 2013 if they fit into my “goals” that I’ve been working on. I have also culled what I know no longer interests me (which is probably why it’s taken so long).  I’ll be offering them up here before putting  them out on the various Facebook groups I post on.

I still have a very long way to go, but at least I’m working on it.  I finished sorting through my quilt fabric several days ago.  Of course, this doesn’t include the fabric shopping I’ve done over the past couple of weeks.  (It’s a sickness, I tell you!)

I’m waiting on some comic backing board to arrive and I’ll start better organizing my fabric.  For now it’s folded the best I could get it to get the most to fit in there.  The refolding won’t happen until after the first of the year though since my goal is to be finished getting my room organized before Thanksgiving so I won’t be too embarrassed if a couple of stitchers happen to drop in for some stitching and finishing fun.

  1. Wow, I am so impressed! I need you to come to Canada and help me do that! I am trying but I am not nearly that successful. Of course, my excuse is that I have to empty my stitching/sewing room in the spring to paint it and had some shelving.

    • Ha, ha, ha, Kathy! This is the 2nd time in a year I’ve had to organize my own room! I had it all put away, but then decided to gut the closet and install those shelving units and it’s taking me forever to do it a 2nd time 😉

  2. Your organizing looks and sounds great! I really need to do the excellent spreadsheet… Maybe this winter… And organizing, and staying that way, when it comes to my fabrics is always a challenge… Thanks do much for your kind words on my blog also… It truly does inspire me…. Take care, Faye

  3. I’m hoping to start the chart cataloguing next week when I start the annual “Stash Cleanup” – I did download a database program to my iPad to see if that feeds my desire for something more flexible than a spreadsheet 😉 I’ll start with a spreadsheet though… just for ease of entering!

    I love the fabric drawers!

    • I need to figure out how to see what I have when I’m out and about. I keep a ‘shopping list’ on my phone of things I want, but sometimes I’ll see something not on my list and wonder if I have it at home, too.
