Studio Organizing Challenge #3

It’s been awhile since I posted about any organizing I’ve been doing, but over the last couple weeks, I’ve worked a bit on whittling down my mess some more; decluttering, organizing, and putting things away, or sorting things out to get rid of. One of the things I did was reorganize my thread. As a longarm […]

Studio Organizing Challenge #2

Studio Organizing Challenge #2

I’ve been chipping away at organizing a little bit every day. Some days more than others, but I try to do at least one little thing every day to get me closer to what I feel is organized. And sometimes, while I’m working on those things, other things tend to get back out of control. […]

Studio Organizing Challenge #1

Posted on February 7, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in Studio Organizing Challenge

I’m not doing weekly Studio Organizing Challenges this year, but I decided to offer up a random challenge now and then, simply because . . . I’m not done organizing my studio yet. I still let things I already organized get back out of control. I’m always bringing more stuff in, starting more projects, and […]

My Scrap Storage Method

My Scrap Storage Method

Several of you said “yes”, you’d like to see how I store my smaller scraps, so today, I’m here to show you how I do that. My theory is that if something isn’t organized, it’s hard to use. If I can’t readily find what I’m looking for, I’ll end up not using it, and using […]

2016 Final Countdown, Task Three

Wow! That went fast! It’s Day 3 already! I’m still working on Tasks One and Two both. Still putting away fabric (because as I’m cleaning flat surfaces, I keep finding more), and I’m still working on clearing the flat surfaces. I worked hard on it yesterday, tho, and I’m highly encouraged by how much better […]

2016 Final Countdown, Task Two

Posted on December 30, 2016 by prairiemoonquilts in Challenges, Studio Organizing Challenge

How did you do yesterday? Are you still working on your stash? I am. I’m working on scraps daily, and will be for awhile. The sad thing is, I keep finding big pieces among the scraps that should go into the bins, but the bins are all full, so I have an overflow box for […]

Studio Organizing, Week 51

Studio Organizing, Week 51

Only two weeks left to get organized for a fresh start on the New Year. At least, that’s usually my plan. Try to get organized so I’ll have a fresh start on the New Year. It hardly ever works out the way I can see it in my head. It’s a fresh start all right, but […]

Studio Organizing, Week 50

Posted on December 12, 2016 by prairiemoonquilts in Studio Organizing Challenge

Do we really have time for organizing during this busy time of year? I think not, but yet, I still need to try. This is week 50, and I thought it was only week 49 — that’s how confused I am! I’m planning tasks for this month that are things we’d probably be having to […]

Studio Organizing, Week 49

Studio Organizing, Week 49

I didn’t post a task last week because I was gone Monday taking Ivy (my longarm machine) to Iowa for her spa treatment. But since I’ve been without her for 8 days and counting now, I did several 30-minute sessions of putting things away. I have the new room just about ready for Ivy to […]

Studio Organizing, Week 47

So how’s your main work surface looking this week? I sure hope you made better progress than I did. Here’s the current state of my cutting table: The piles are different, but they’re still there! Some of them are not as high, and some are completely gone, but replaced with other piles. So I’m calling […]
