Studio Organizing, Week 46

Posted on November 13, 2015 by prairiemoonquilts in Studio Organizing Challenge

When My Cowboy reminded me this morning that today is trash day, and I didn’t have the trash put out yet, it also made me realize that yesterday was Thursday, and I didn’t post our organizing task! I’m having a bit of trouble keeping track of the days right now.

Does your sewing area feel much better now, after last week’s task? Mine does. I took my machine to a retreat, so while I had it off the table, I cleaned the table up before putting it back. Aaahhhh, like a breath of fresh air!

And now on to this week’s task. It’s a thinking one:

Make a list

We’re fast headed toward the end of the year, and the holiday season, so I thought that getting things down on paper might help us get organized for all the things that need to be finished before 2015 escapes us completely.

This can be a list of anything you need to make a list of.

A Christmas card list
A Christmas gift list
A menu and grocery list for Thanksgiving dinner
A list of projects you need to finish for gifts
A list of the things you still need to acquire in order to finish the gifts
Or simply a list of things you’d like to complete before the year is over
You could even get a jump start on a brand new list for 2016!

The choice is yours.

I love lists, and I have many. I put my most urgent projects on a categorized list and posted them on the wall in front of my computer, where I can see them several times a day, and check them off as they’re done. There’s just something about those check marks!

I’m planning on making some things for my daughters, so I still need to buy some supplies, and need to locate one of my books that is still packed away, then get to sewing.

What about you? What’s on YOUR list?

    No new lists!! I’m still working on my list from August that got added to. Ultimately there were 15 quilts and 25 or 26 pillowcases on it. There’s 7 quilts and 15 or 16 pillowcases left on it and I’m resisting adding 2 quilt to the list since they aren’t needed until after the 1st of the year. And to think I’ve pulled fabrics for the Bonnie Hunter mystery. What am I thinking?

    I love lists so I am making a list for me, instead of all the must do lists.
    My quilting list is here.

    I did make progress on my sewing area, but it will always need help because I make a mess when I’m creative.

    Well I can’t make a list, I just got home form a huge free fabric come and get it event. I am surrounded by shopping bags.

    NOw I have to put it away…

  4. I also adore lists…but I keep misplacing them!! It’s like when I put something I don’t want to lose in “a safe place”…then I can’t remember where the “safe place” is!!! Ugh!

    I am trying to squeeze back into my sewing room so the machine area is not cleaner but I just had an idea pop into my head.

    My list is going to be about quilting because I seem to be spinning my wheels!

  6. No list here – I’m doing well to stay upright for a few minutes to write one comment or two with this broken hip. But I’ll be rooting for all of ya’.
