Since the last task was sort of a double, I don’t feel too bad having skipped a week. I’ve been too busy for my own good, and the last two weeks got completely out of control.
I feel like I didn’t really get a summer. School has started back up already, and I’m still wanting it to be the end of May!
I changed my rotary cutter blade, and I’ve done so much cutting since then, I think it might be time to change it again already!
Even though I haven’t posted about it, I’ve been doing some organizing. I’m working on the storage closet in my office, and I’m just about to get it finished. I’ll show you that once I get it done.
My cutting table is still a total disaster. I still have piles everywhere. And I still have a lot of scraps to deal with, and fabric that needs to be put away. Oh, and I’ve also added to my UFO list! Or technically, my WIP list, if you prefer to call it that. Is there really any hope?
My first main goal is to have clear floor areas (not just in my sewing room, but my entire house, but that’s a gargantuan task that needs to be broken down). Progress is so slow that I feel like I’m going backwards sometimes (and I probably am). But this past week was a tiny step in the right direction, so this week, I hope to build on that, which leads us to this week’s task:
Which could also translate into simply:
I currently have three piles in my sewing room floor, but by the end of this week, I hope to have ZERO.
See this rolling cart of drawers?
It’s full, and I had decided that I would NOT order another one — I simply need to get rid of things.
However, I broke down and ordered one — not because I gave in, but because I decided it would really come in useful in the next room that I’m fixing up. I’ll have one in each room for storage, of things that would normally just be left laying out. So in the name of neatness, I have another one on the way. I’m sure I can fill it up the instant I get it assembled!
See the pile on top of the rolling cart?
All quilt tops that I need to get quilted. But there’s never any time to quilt anything of my own if it doesn’t have a deadline — uff! There’s at least 10 quilt tops in that pile right there!
See the pile on the floor beside the rolling cart?
Most of that is trimmings from quilts that I’ve finished quilting and then had to put the binding on. I just throw it over there and tell myself I’ll deal with it later. Now is the time!
I’ve been watching folks on Instagram showing pictures of their tidied-up studios, and mine is still just a total disaster, even in spite of weekly organizing tasks! I plan to work on it this week. I at least want to be able to walk around my cutting table without tripping on something that’s in the floor and shouldn’t be!
How about you? Is yours this bad? Or am I alone? Have you had time to keep up with yours? Or have you had a crazy busy summer, too? What are you going to tackle this week?
