Clean Drawers...

Not those drawers, girlfriends!
I have one fat quarter drawer in my work table. Only one. I go into that drawer whenever I'm searching for a piece for a small project. Perhaps I need a 2 1/2" strip for a mug mat, or a small piece in a certain color for an applique' project. This is my go-to drawer. It was messy.
I tackled that drawer. I re-folded and then I rearranged according to colors. It had to be done, and it's always fun to play in my stash. I even found a few fabrics that had slipped down in the pile so that I couldn't see them. That's been fixed.

I don't know if you can see the difference, but really, I feel so much better. Little things mean a lot to this Type A personality. Now. What can I tackle next? hmmmm

Little things do mean a lot. Sometimes inspiration comes just from rearranging or straightening. I see dots in that drawer of scraps...

I can see a difference. It looks so nice now. When Eric came home from the army he took over our spare bedroom. Now I admit I had sprawled a bit. My sewing was in my sewing room and my needlework, tatting, and knitting were in the spare bedroom. Since I couldn't move anything my "helpers" just piled everything in jumbled piles into the sewing room. I can't even get my wheelchair in the door! Jim has promised to take some time off and help me organize everything as soon as he catches up at work. Are we looking at 2014?
