Call me crazy but I decided to help my husband organize his toolbox, I often can't find what is needed and with all the others that use the toolbox sometimes it's not where my husband originally put it. So we are going draw by draw and putting things back where they belong and labeling them hopefully, they might return to their proper place. This is part of a very large project to organize the whole garage and since I need my husbands help and input it will probably be ongoing for a month or two. We have alot of stuff in our garage, mind you we have already spent several days in the past year purging stuff like parts to things we no longer have, broken stuff , stuff we haven't used and will NEVER use again, etc... This gets very overwhelming to me because I don't know what some of the stuff is and where or what it belongs with from an organizing standpoint so it's slow going. I hope to share more photos of the progress in the coming months, I will go snap some before photos today so you will be able to really see the progress:0)
No, the red party cups are not from a wild party they are what I used to help sort sockets to put in the toolbox, my table was taken over by stuff from the toolbox draws! Sorry for the blurry photo.
In between sorting and organizing I did get some sewing done. Got all of the blocks for All Stars (by Cozy Quilts Designs) done and on the design wall to help with putting it together, can you see the stars? I tried really hard to not worry about "matching" the fabric for each star, it looks great and really looks scrappy. It is also great because there is no fussy matching seams only the ones as you put the rows together. What do you think? You can't have it, it's MINE, need to tell myself I will not give this one away!
Lastly, it was time to clean the dreaded desk, so to make it easier I took everything out and brought it to my sewing room table. It's a more comfortable, brighter and I will get it done quickly so I can have my sewing table back! I am guilty of letting papers pile up instead of taking 5 minutes to go file them, or immediately getting rid of the junk mail, I put them on the desk and voila after a few months I can't close the roll top or find that one piece of paper that I need NOW:0( I have a little more to work on but as you can see from the green plastic bag on the floor I have alot done and now I just need to put it neatly back in the desk.
I think I need to make another To Do List because I have several things that are almost finished and instead of finishing them I start something new, oh well, I guess that I just part of who I am. Enjoy your weekend, it's the 4th Saturday and I gotta go to my Civil War Quilt gathering and get my next block!
