2017 Final Countdown, Task Two

I’m happy to report that my magazine stack is already half gone! That’s mainly because I’ve been stricken with some sort of winter malady, and have been confined to my easy chair under a pile of blankets with some hot tea, so how better to entertain myself than look through quilting magazines? I’ll keep at […]

Oh, What Tangled Webs We Weave …

. . . When we let our thread supply get out of control! I’m on a mission to get all my various types of thread reorganized, after riffling through them all year, and not putting any of it away. OK, so maybe it’s been even longer than a year! I got my longarm thread back […]

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.

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. […]

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 […]
