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. See how that works? I fear this will always be an ongoing battle!
I’m back with a new challenge today because I discovered Sherri’s “Tips For Organizing Your Sewing Space” over at A Quilting Life. A couple years ago, she offered up 20 tasks over a one-month period for getting your sewing space whipped into shape. She has all the links in one place now, and they’re good!
I’m planning to try some of them, and I urge you to try some along with me. So our challenge is this:
Pick at least two things from Sherri’s list to work on in your own space
I have no grand plans to do any of these in a day, and I certainly won’t get done with all of them in a month, but I’m going to pick and choose and do a few as I find the time.
Her complete list of tasks is HERE.
I’m starting from the beginning, and will be working on my lists. I’m traveling for the next couple weeks, so not much real sewing will be getting done. It’ll be a good time for me to look over my lists, update them, and make sure everything is listed, or scratched off if I decide to ditch any ideas!
And speaking of scratching things off a list, I completed this flower pillow from a Renee Nanneman pattern, and took it to Mother Outlaw — she loved it!
And now . . . in the interest of decluttering my sewing space . . .
I’m reasonably sure I won’t make another pillow like this (even tho it was super easy and is super cute) — I just don’t like doing the same thing twice. And I know I won’t have time to make any of the other projects in the book, even tho some of them are also very tempting. So I’m having a give-away for this “Blossom Lane” book by Need’l Love, now that I’m done with it.
All you have to do for a chance to win the book is leave a comment on this post. While you’re at it, let me know which task of Sherri’s you think you might tackle first. I’ll draw for a winner on Friday, March 3rd.
UPDATE: The winner of the Blossom Lane booklet is Cathy! Thanks to everyone who played along.
