There have been recent discussions on an on line charity quilting group that I read on a daily basis (heartstrings) about cleaning up your sewing room. Some of these ladies have inspired me to TRY and make my sewing room a little cleaner and more organized.
I decided that taking a day or two of nothing but cleaning in my basement quilting studio didn't sound like much fun or something that I would stick with so I am challenging myself to spend the first 10 minutes of anytime I go to the sewing room cleaning/straightening up or organizing. I figure that I can probably get a lot accomplished in that little bit of time if I stick to it for a couple of weeks.
This morning I went down there and spent 10 minutes and in that time I got my cutting board totally cleaned off. Wish I had taken a before picture because I had fabric strips, some patterns off the internet, a quilting magazine and 3 pairs of sissors on there. It will be nice to do some cutting without having to move everything first.
Do you want to join me in my challenge? How much can you get done in 10 minutes?
Yesterday I had declared a day to work on craft show projects. I was going through my "to be quilted" shelf and found this top that I had totally forgotten about. About six months ago I had made a baby quilt for my step-daughter to give a friend. Since I was not using a specific pattern I had lots of pieces and parts left so used them putting together this little quilt.
I decided to try my third attempt at Dawn's Fern Ziggle from the latest Pajama Quilter DVD and I had a lot better success this time. I even got the binding about half way hand stitched down last night.
