Can you tell I’ve been working this week? Creative Clutter may be better than Idle Neatness, but my table is 6 feet by 4 feet- that’s 24 square feet, buried with at least a foot deep of mess. It’s Friday night and Saturday is National Quilting Day. I need to find my cutting table! (I also need to figure out how to word wrap around a photo- if anybody knows how to do this in WordPress, please send me an email. I need all the help I can get 🙂 But… I digress.
Part of the mess you see is leftover scraps. I keep the pieces that are larger than 3/4 inch or 2 cm wide. Some people think I should throw away these little bits, but if you stick around for future blog postings, you’ll see some projects I made from these small pieces. However, until they are needed, I have to keep my stash organized and accessible. I hope this gives you an idea you find helpful.
Just looking at my organized strips and clean table inspires me to get busy on the next project. It’s also easier to work because I found, buried in mess, my scissors, 6″ square ruler, seam ripper, rotary cutter, tweezers, a box of facial tissues, my Frixion pen, and the sample labels I’ve been working on. It’s like an archaeological dig! But it’s done and I’m ready for National Quilting Day….actually, at Kinsey Quilts, every day is quilting day.
Wishing you joyful stitches.
