Anyone else out there getting nervous about Christmas? I have gotten started...here are three little 6-inch applique blocks from a Lori Smith pattern.
I just love these little scrappy applique projects...such a good way to use my tiniest scraps, and they are very portable when I am on the run, which I always seem to be.
The quilt cave has suffered a self-imposed IMPLOSION...too much stuff crammed into too little cave makes me a grumpy, frustrated, unproductive, creative cave troll. Something had to be done!
We have not moved in almost 20 years, which means things have accumulated...gravity tends to fill the quilt cave...ugh!
EVERYTHING was taken apart, gone through, and moved. It was my summer project that never happened...hard to launch a pattern business with an unworkable space. It doesn't matter how organized you are, too much stuff is simply too much stuff!
It was time for that hard, hard question..."am I really going to use ALL of this?!? It seemed like a good idea at the time..."
Well, unused books, patterns, fabrics, containers from tiny to huge, crafty ingredients, seasonal decor, household items, etc. have been culled. Boxes, bags, and bins have been filled with precious booty and temporarily placed in the garage. Ads have been placed and a quilter's garage sale has been planned with two other, equally crazy, overly-ambitious quilters/crafters in my area.
If you are local to me and interested in coming, shoot me a comment or email to that effect and I will fill you in.
I will take pictures of the new and improved cave for the next post. It is not elegant, but it is organized, leaner and meaner, and almost ready for activity. Yahoo!
Take the time to do the things that are important to YOU!
