Somewhere over this past week, I checked on a fellow blogger's blog - Institches with Bonnie - and found the 15 minute studio spiff up page! While I most certainly am NOT doing before pictures - I am thinking of maybe AFTER pictures (which will still look pretty Before to others - but fine to me!) as I journey through the weeks of blog URLs she has posted and work on MY sewing room as well!
#1 - Vacuum whatever amount of floor I can get to! I like this blog list of Bonnie's already!!!!
#2 - List any and all UFO projects. Bonnie uses an Excel spreadsheet. I don't dare - since I am a Procrastination winner at using any and all spread sheets! Simple is best for me! I KNOW what still needs to be done to various projects - even when they are 12, 15, and 20 years old (thankfully I got rid of the pretty dress I had sewn for my dd that still needed buttons and a hem! She was 6 at the time - and over 39 plus - when I re-homed it in year 2000!!!)
So far I have over 86 quilty things listed - not counting the 2 baby blankets, nor the other projects (5 of them!) I began this past week! Somehow I don't think my mind has grasped the concept of winnowing DOWN the number of UFOs!
I also found Vickie Welsh's UFO challenge and may do that as well! Who knows! I may even complete some and at least NOT add any more for a while! One thing she does that I'm adopting is that she posts a list of things done - and I think I may do that as well! so - Another page - and a once a month post! Sounds good!
|By NO MEANS is this all of my UFOs. |
I have more - LOTS more - in boxes on the bottom or
bottom 2 of each of the 3 shelving units in the room
|More of the UFOs - on the very bottom shelf.|
|My project basket|
IDEALLY it would hold ONLY 1 WIP for machine piecing, 1 flimsy for quilting,
maybe 1 for binding, 1 for applique.
Not that I'm admitting to a mass pile-up or anything!
