It was interesting to hear about all the tools you are trying out. I had to go look up what a couple of them were!
I posted HERE about using the Easy Dresden Tool.
And while I have yet to take any stitches, I have been cutting with my mini Double Wedding Ring templates. So far, it’s going well.
And all that stuff I’ve been doing has led us to this week’s task:
When I get started on something, I pull things out, push them aside, make scraps, pull more stuff, make notes, fling stuff everywhere, and never seem to put anything away!
That’s how my cutting table gets into such a mess.
So this week, our task is to put away the things we’re not using, the things we’re done with, the fabric we’re finished using . . . store your tools all back in their proper places, file your notes, throw away the trash, etc.
If you recently finished a project, then put away all the extra stuff from having worked on it.
It’ll just make your area a bit cleaner so you have more room for the work at hand.
One of my main catch-alls is this basket where I put all the fabric I’m done with until I put it away or cut it up into my pre-cut scrap bins.
It gets out of control in a hurry. I tell myself I’ll deal with it once a week, but it ends up being more like once a month. Now is the time to take care of it yet again before it goes from bad to worse.
I already gathered up all my pens and pencils I had scattered around and got them back in place (now that I have places for them all after Week 4’s task). I also corralled all my loose notes and got them in my notebook so that I don’t lose them. Now to get that basket emptied out!
If you’re not a flinger and a scatterer like me, then you’ll have an easy week of it this time. I’d like to hear from you either way. Do you fling and scatter like me until you have a royal mess? Or do you pick up after yourself every time so that things just naturally stay neat? (My friend, Barb, is trying to teach me how to do this — so far I’m not such a good student . . .)
