I was just about ready to completely gut my room for the upcoming paint job, but Mister said he’d rather do it one section at a time. Almost half of every crafty thing I own is stacked on the bed or floor of the guest room across the hall. Nothing, including the sewing machine, was unpacked after quilt retreat and I’m going through sewing withdrawal. I am thisclose to finishing another quilt. Fortunately a Friday sew-in is coming soon at my LQS.
While pulling things out, and stacking stuff everywhere, I’ve been giving a lot of thought about how to return it to the room. I’ve been trying to group thing together but I’ve just about decided to change the way I’ve been sorting my fabric and storing my WIPs.
The WIPs are all together in one pile and they’re being placed in labeled containers. I’m determined to not have more WIPs than containers. LOL
I love Bonnie Hunter’s scrap user system and need to figure out a way to expand mine without increasing the footprint it takes. For my non-scrap fabrics I’m going to incorporate some ideas I picked up from Jeni Baker’s The Art of Choosing series of posts. I’ve read both of these ladies’ posts numerous times and come away with additional tidbits each time.
Now I just need to finish moving stuff from the first paint zone and get Mister wielding that paint roller!
