Well, it’s Tuesday. I can hardly believe I actually know what day it is, but it also means I missed posting this week’s organizing task on Monday.
You see, I just returned from a 5-day retreat in Minnesota with some of my very best friends — an entire set of extra sisters, really — and I spent yesterday cleaning the kitchen, cleaning the bathroom, unpacking, opening mail, going through email, and making a run to the grocery store. Cowboys don’t much seem to care if the sink is full of dirty dishes and you’re on the verge of running out of toilet paper. And mine doesn’t even seem to mind eating cereal three meals a day!
I suppose I could call that enough organizing for one week, but I’m presenting a task this week anyway, because none of those had anything to do with organizing my sewing space.
So this week’s task is:
Last week I gave us all permission to start a new project using up those scraps, but if you’re like me, it didn’t make a dent, and you still have some more scraps to organize.
I started my guild’s mystery quilt project, which requires using nearly 1000 2 1/2″ squares. While I can now get the lid back on my bin of 2 1/2″ squares, I still have way too many scraps to deal with, and if I concentrate, I’m sure I can fill that bin right back up!
How about you?
I also have lots of stray fabric to put away where it belongs, and it could make a world of difference in how neat my studio could look, and how clear my cutting table could become.
Do you have this problem? Or is it just me?
