clearing the decks

After a busy day in NY, I was energized enough to tackle the cutting table in my sewing room. I have only now finished sorting strips by color and have put them into plastic bags. How long they will stay organized remains to be seen:-).  But in the meantime, I can see the horizontal surface for the first time in the better part of a year.  I have put strips and bits into one plastic box and UFO blocks into another and have even labeled them!  What has come over me?

 Now that I have cleared the decks, so to speak, I am going to my studio for the first time in a month.
I am taking a giant bag of fabric with me and am going to start working on something new. . Then, I need to get to work on the rest of this room and do my annual de-cluttering. This will allow me to start the cycle again. Oh, joy.

Do you have a little spare time to organize my studio while you're at it? Isn't it a great feeling to have an empty work table just waiting for the next project?!

Yes, I think it's time for a few more of us to do the same. I'm hoping that reading about what you did will be enough of a motivator for me to start. Good luck today!

It does help to organize the studio before tackling new projects. That's on my list to do this weekend. Good Luck!

I am trying to do the same thing, but keep getting distracted!
