Oh, my! I spent all day Saturday, from the time I woke up until well into Sunday (note how late I'm writing this post!) mucking out the Sweat Shop. A person can only go so long before a BIG reorganization effort is required, and as you know, that time had come. But I really, REALLY didn't expect it to take as much time as it's taking.
On the bright side--for YOU anyway--I've found a couple more things to give away in the future. And also on the bright side--for you and me, maybe?--I've found several things to list in my Etsy shop. Remember I mentioned that I thought I'd sell some of my Thimbleberries things that were taking up space and that I'd never get around to using/making? Well, they're there now. Click on over to see what I've listed--quite a few fat quarter groupings but also a couple kits and some non-Thimbleberries things too. (Click HERE.) Yes, I know--shameless promotion. But I really need to get some things moved out because my space is limited--and I could probably make a small fortune selling my Thimbleberries fabric and still not notice I'd made much of a dent in my "supplies."
Over the years, I've "collected" swapped blocks and half-finished projects, and I'm oddly excited about finally taking stock and coming up with a PLAN. I've written down what I have along those lines, and I'm going to type them (well, not THEM, exactly, but a name and description) onto paper strips and draw a strip each month. Whatever project I draw is the quilt top I need to finish that month. Many of these projects will only take a few evenings or a weekend at most to finish. I'm thinking about doing the same thing with getting my basket of quilt tops quilted, but I'm not quite to the point where I can organize those yet.
I can see that I'll need to spend a few more hours in the Sweat Shop on Sunday before it's in order, so I'd best get myself to bed for a little sleep. "See" you tomorrow!
