Slowly, over the last few weeks (months?) my sewing area has reached the disaster you see here:
Piled in the mess are 5 Friendship Bags, 6 baby quilts waiting on labels and binding to be finished, and two lap quilts waiting to be quilted.
The table you see in the front does not belong inside. It’s for temporary use only. I brought it out last February when I was working on the Market quilts and never put it away. It just accumulates things, so away it goes this weekend.
It’s rather overwhelming, but I finally emptied the laundry basket of fabric that needed to be ironed. My plan is to remove everything from the temporary table, put it in the laundry basket for now or put it away if there’s a spot for it.
Then I’ll have a place to organize the fabric by colourways or by sets. I have a few empty shelves for it already.
I’m hoping to have this all done in the evenings this week, so I can get working on my Summertime swap this weekend.
Anyone else use the Labour Day weekend to organize, regroup and prepare for Fall? I do more this time of year than New Year’s in terms of making plans and reorganizing life.
