I’m a Planner Nerd

I freely admit it. There’s something about a blank book with lines waiting to be filled up with lists that just makes me giddy! I love my lists! I want to buy every planner book I come across, and I look at them all the time. And then I end up confusing myself. What is […]

Studio Organizing, Week 31

Studio Organizing, Week 31

Did you get your scraps under control last week? I think mine are winning the battle around here — I did sort and cut a few, but I have a long way to go! I cut a lot of strips for my locker-hooked rug this week — now I can just work away without having […]

Studio Organizing, Week 16

Well, I barely managed to clean up even one small area this past week. It wasn’t even that bad of a mess — my problem is finding the extra time to give it any attention! But I’m so glad I did it. It looks so much better, and is like a breath of fresh air […]

Studio Organizing, Week 12

While last week’s task should have been an easy one for me, I sorta fizzled on it. I gathered up a lot more stray thread that needed to be put away, but all I managed to put away was the spools . . . because they were easy. The embroidery floss mess? Still a mess […]

Studio Organizing, Week 11

Well, I don’t know about you, but I needed last week’s re-do. I kept working on paper, and I have really made some progress. I also spent a lot of time just putting things away. I’ve unearthed a lot of items that need a home during all this organizing, so I worked on vanquishing some […]

Studio Organizing, Week 5

My Cowboy reads my blog . . . apparently more than I think he does! After my lamentations about broken rotary cutters from last week, look what magically arrived in the mail this week! My Cowboy shopped for my favorite cutter, in several different styles, and now I think I’m set for a good long […]

Studio Organizing, Week 2

So did you find your oldest UFO? I found mine. I also found the backing. And what’s even more surprising? The binding fabric was with it, too! Who knew I was so organized? I sure didn’t! Here’s a sneak peek. Lovely 80’s colors, huh? I still have hope that it will be a really lovely […]

2015: Organize

2015: Organize

I’m not a New Year’s Resolution maker. But I set goals for myself all year round. Some are monthly, some are weekly — heck, some of them are daily (“just get through the day”)! As part of my starting fresh with a new year, I go over my goals from the last year to see […]

The Studio Organizing Challenge, 2015

Every year for the last six years, I’ve hosted “The Final Countdown” here on the ol’ blog. It’s three days of organizing tasks meant to help us all enter the New Year with a bit more clarity and peace of mind, at least as far as our sewing spaces and projects are concerned. And it […]

My Sewing Room

My Sewing Room

I have finally, after nearly 2 years here, finished another room of our house. And to me, it’s a very important one — it’s my sewing room! I’ve mentioned before that the upstairs of our house is just 4 empty rooms, and I’m turning each one into a room to house a specific function: an […]
