Last week was a tough one for me. It made me work hard! I found lots of stray items to put away.
I put away a LOT of fabric that was loitering in various places in the studio, and while my little basket isn’t completely empty, it’s at least got some space in it.
While dealing with all that fabric, I actually worked on cutting pieces for 3 quilts! So those are moved further along, as well.
I also pulled out fabric for 4 new projects, but we won’t talk about that right now.
I gathered up all my scrap batting and got it into the tub where it belongs. (I keep pieces that are big enough to use for table runners or larger, and the rest goes into dog pillows or to recycle.)
And I filed some papers that needed filing, which leads me to this week’s task:
After filing away a few papers, I realized how much more actually needs to be dealt with. There are piles of paper everywhere! Not to mention that I’m always behind on paperwork. Here’s what one pile looked like at the beginning of the year:
Since then, I’ve made a couple new piles:
Even one in the floor! How does that make any sense?
I need a system.
So this week, I intend to work on this system. I need to get it in order so I can finish my taxes, anyway, so I know this will really help. And I’m hoping it will turn up a few pieces I’m missing!
How about you?
Do you have a paperwork system that works for you?
Or do you print things out and they’re still laying around a week later?
Do you know right where every piece of paper you need is located?
Or do you (like me) have to dig through several piles before you find it, even though you know you just saw it . . . somewhere . . . ?
Do you have your taxes done? (If so, I’m extremely jealous.)
I seriously doubt that one week is gonna get me completely set up, but I intend to make great strides on it this week . . . and maybe even finish my taxes!
I just hope one or more of those new projects doesn’t distract me too much . . .
