Shelly, of Prairie Moon Quilts, once again hosted her Final Countdown Challenge, to help us get our sewing spaces in order for the New Year. This has been very helpful to me in the past, so I definitely wanted to do it again.
The first task, which you can read about HERE, is to:
Get your fabric stash under control.
So I decided to tackle my shelving unit that holds alot of my fabrics and magazines. It looked like this:
I pulled everything off and tried to reorganize it, so it looked like this a few days ago.
So I decided to move the two units and try putting all the bags on the shelves. It now looks like this:
Shelly asked in the challenge if we had a plan for our stash in 2017?
My plan/goals will be to:
- go through all these bags and sort out what to keep and what to give to charity.
- fold any yardage neatly in piles
- cut up clothes and keep only what is needed.
- make a few scrap quilts.
As I was doing all this, my daughter started decluttering her play area. She had various bins of small scraps and ribbons that we wanted to combine. She didn't want to get rid of a doll unit, so she decided to re-purpose it for all her scraps!
Thanks, Shelly, for a fun and productive first task!
