I started with my fabric drawers. I have a HUGE plastic 3 drawer chest that I have been keeping my fabric stash in. Yeah, it had exploded some time ago and fabric was laying everywhere: in grocery bags, in piles on the floor, on top of the chest....everywhere.
I sorted through all of the fabric. I threw away any scrap that could not be used to make a small square. It made me sad. It was a huge pile of fabric. But, it was never going to get used, just thrown out eventually, so it was a good thing. This is what I ended up with:
3 neatly organized drawers. All sorted by color. All of the scraps of the same pattern put together.
Drawer 1: red, yellow, pink, orange
Drawer 2: white, black, brown, cream
Drawer 3: blue, green, purple
Now this is what I will be tackling next. Yes, it is the rest of the explosion. I know it looks bad, but hopefully it shouldn't take too long to straighten out! *fingers crossed*
And then we have this little corner. This is actually my dining area, and my dining table (yes it's a card table). Yeah, it is a lot neater than a few weeks ago. But it could be neater still. Hopefully I'll finish a few of the projects that are sitting there, waiting. And maybe I'll find the cord for that printer that's sitting there on the table. Yeah, it doesn't have a cable, so I don't know if it works or not. Do you think DI will take it without the cable? Hmmm....it was a really good printer, hardly used at all. Maybe I'll just buy the cable.
