Another drawer cleaned out! It’s amazing what you find when you dig through a drawer you haven’t opened in probably a year.
I figure if I haven’t looked in it for that long, I probably don’t much need the stuff that’s in there, right?
I found a whole stash of fancy little zippered pouches — all empty.
I could either fill them up and use them, or just get rid of them. I chose to do some of each. I filled some of them with pieces I needed to corral, and some of them I’m not keeping.
I put the fabric away where it belongs, and I filled the drawer back up with items that needed a place to live. Stabilizers, my InsulFleece, a few cross-stitch supplies, things like that. Now if I can just remember that’s where I put those things the next time I need to use them . . .
This task also yielded an empty basket that I can now use somewhere else:
And one of the little zippered pouches was this cute thing! I’m sure it’s a makeup case my daughter gave me, but I think it’s gonna make a cute little hexie project bag. It’s even got hexies on it!
And just like that, it’s time for another task!
This week I’m leaving it a little bit open:
I know what my 3 things will be (I think) — I could change my mind — but I know I want to start with:
* Putting fabric away — I’ve got an entire box of leftovers from projects I’ve recently finished that needs to be dealt with. It’s getting out of hand.
* Taking care of some paperwork — I need to do some filing and purging in the paper department. I have books, magazines, patterns, receipts, printouts, catalogs, sticky notes, notebooks, clippings, and all sorts of stuff scattered around all over. It’s a mess!
* Organizing some UFOs — Things are strung everywhere from the last month of marathon sewing, and I need to make some sense of it so I can be a bit more productive in the coming month. Getting parts and pieces gathered up and put where they belong, putting away things I’m finished with, and regrouping on a couple of ideas — all need to be done — so I’m going to work on that.
I think I’ll have a busy week of organizing, if I can manage to get all that done.
What about you?
Have you been putting off at least three things you know you should do, but have been hanging your heels about? Let’s hear them! And we’ll work on them together this week.
