You know those plans I had for studio organization? Well, not just yet. I sewed a couple of bags and made a tiny dent in the disarray but mostly I looked at the mess and felt totally overwhelmed. This morning I WILL go into the eaves and start moving stuff around and I WILL organize the shelves. Sometimes tasks just look so big and even knowing that solving the problem by attacking it in small bursts of energy is good methodology, I still have difficulty taking the first step. Does that ever happen to you?
I need to be more realistic about scraps and scrap organization. It is very difficult for me to throw away fabric. Even though I KNOW I will never use 2-1/2” pieces because sewing little pieces of fabric makes me crazy, I keep throwing little strips and squares and bricks into a box. (2-1/2” strips are different. I like working with strips of fabric.) Should I even bother saving them for someone else? If I don’t I will feel badly and if I do, when do I finally get rid of them?
Nicole (Sister’s Choice) got rid of scraps once by blogging that she was willing to give away a large basket of them to anyone that wanted them. Y’all want some of these? I have Moda, P&B Textiles, Red Rooster, Kaufmann, Maywood Studios, etc. I can’t guarantee what will be in the box but there would be a lot of whatever it is! Leave a comment if you are interested. If you are a “no reply” commenter, leave some way for me to get in touch with you. I will do the random number generator thingy if there is any interest at all!
It is now 5:45am and I am heading into the eaves of the attic. In the words of General McArthur, “I shall return!”
