10 Minute Tip
Hello friends! Here's another quick tip to make the most of your quilting time. If you don't have time to sit and sew (gasp) or really focus on a project (sigh) it doesn't mean you can't get SOMETHING done. My suggestion for today would be to:
Sort just one bin/drawer/basket/box
That's right. Just pick one container of fabric, and sort it! By that I mean, pull everything out of the container, press anything that needs pressing. Refold all the fabrics to the same size and line them up so you can see each of them at a glance. This will depend on the size and shape of your container, but I use wire bins to store my fabrics. I store some by theme (I have one for dots, 30's, batiks) but most by color. Remove anything that doesn't belong and put it where it should be.
Okay, now step back and admire your work! Next time you have just a few minutes, you can tackle another one. Organizing one bin at a time is much less overwhelming than taking on a whole closet or room. And you get the satisfaction of being finished each time! Just try it, trust me, you'll be glad you did!
And while you are doing that, I will be doing this...
She's a hungry girl, and I am a sucker for a sweet face.
Enjoy Every Stitch!
