The last two weeks I’ve been working on cleaning and organizing my sewing and quilting space. It is also my office space for work, and it was a total mess and affecting my productivity.
To inspire myself, I bought a new rug for the space. I pulled everything out into the living room, cleaned the floors and the walls, then put the new rug in and re-set the whole space. It’s feeling pretty f’n good right now!
Here is all my patterned quilting fabric in one space:
Solids are my favorite to work with, so I have a lot of solids, and put all that into bins under my cutting table. Not the most accessible, but better than it was before: in boxes, and at the bottom of my patterned fabrics.
After going through all my bigger pieces of fabric, I still had a big box of scrap fabrics I was collecting for hexie projects. Those pieces are pretty small, and I was really super tempted to toss them all. However, I just can’t seem to let go of things so easily… so I went through it all and sorted them into colors.
I now have a HUGE list of projects, mostly small things to finish. It’s great to have a nice clean space to start those with. Even Taz kitty got a new piece of thick corduroy that I stuffed with batting scraps as a new bed, and he’s fully enjoying it on the new rug in front of the heating vent!
