How’d you do last week?
Did you tame a bin of fabric?
I’m happy to say that I did!
Evidently, I’ve used enough pieces out of my neutrals bins that I was able to combine the large bin and the small bin together into just the large bin:
Which left me with a small empty bin:
That I immediately filled up with my newest UFO!
In honor of the fact that I have a lot of hand sewing to get done in the next week or so, this week’s task is:
Go through your needles, your thimbles, your threads, your scissors, your pins, or whatever else you use when you’re hand sewing, and get it all cleaned out, cleaned up, reorganized, and ready for some serious hand stitching time.
It’ll make it sew much easier when you sit down to work on it, if you have it all right at hand, and in the right spots.
Throw away any bent or rusty needles or pins, get your project organized, all the pieces and parts ready to just pick up and work on.
Then when you sit down to hand stitch, you’ll actually get some stitching accomplished, instead of looking for the right thread, the missing needle, the little scissors, or pieces of the project itself.
Here’s to all of us being a little more productive at the hand-stitching part of our quilting lives (hopefully not only this week, but all the weeks from now on)!
