It’s already time for the next Studio Organizing Challenge, and I’m still working on the last two!
I spent quite a bit of time working on my fabric re-organization, but seriously, it doesn’t look a bit better than it did. And I’m using up quite a bit of it as I go, too. I’ve pieced 2 backings and cut out 5 more pillowcases, in addition to making a few scrap blocks and cutting pieces for more quilts in progress. It’s really depressing to see that it’s not dwindling fast enough. I need to get it all to fit in my bins! Ack! Perhaps I’m not being ruthless enough yet. I’ll work on that, too . . .
And while I did use up some more odds and ends of thread and cleaned up the thread rack in my sewing room (and cleaned out a drawer of thread), I have not taken the time yet to re-organize my longarm thread stash, which is the main thread stash I need to address. But I have hopes of getting to it soon!
But for now . . . onward we go . . .
This month’s organizing challenge was an easy one for me to choose:
Everywhere I look around me in my office are piles of paper! Papers that need to be gone through, sorted, filed, or just plain tossed. Now that taxes are over with, it’s time to dive in and work on it!
Part of the reason I have piles is because I don’t keep up with the filing system I have, so my first order of business is going to be cleaning out the file cabinet.
Then there are piles of magazines and books that I also need to be more ruthless about culling and getting rid of.
If I can do it this month, my guild is taking donations for a resale booth at our upcoming quilt show, so I’d have a great place to get rid of them and help my guild out. So . . . that’s what I intend to work on very soon. The paper is about to smother me, and I need the breathing room!
What about you?
I know some of you addressed paper piles earlier in the year, or at the end of last year during the Final Countdown, but if you’re like me, it just keeps coming in and piling up, so now is the time to rein it back in and keep your new system under control; or if you’re REALLY like me, finish dealing with it, since we never got done the first time around!
What’s your paper problem? Or do you even have one?
