I've set myself a couple of goals for this year. The first is to spend 15 minutes (on each day I'm in the sewing room) cutting and sorting all the fabrics which are hidden in two large plastic storage boxes in the corner of the room. This is a place where in the past I've tossed pieces of leftover backing fabrics, pieces I wasn't sure what to do with, and also orphan blocks.
I've made a start in the last two days and ended up spending 30 minutes each day, and it has made quite a dent already. I'll be really happy if I can get one container out of the room, and entirely thrilled if I can get them both empty.
This morning I tackled something else - I cleaned off the cutting table. I purchased the two containers on the table the other day at a discount store, and the one on the left holds all my supplies like tape measures, pin containers etc, and the one on the right holds fabric trimmings. My goal is to keep my cutting table clear at all times during the year. I predict this will be the tougher of my goals.
I haven't done my 15 minutes of sorting from the fabric boxes yet, but that's next on my list for today, and after that's done, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to assemble the last sections of the purple stars top. How fun to see it all come together!
Also - a big thank you to Prue for a lovely day out yesterday. My kids and I met up with Prue and some other quilting ladies at her home in the hills. Amy and Camo were fascinated with her pet turtle, and then had the most fun feeding her cows. I didn't have my camera with me, but others did, and I'll share some pictures with you when I get copies.
