    My DH laughs at me because I have weird "quirks" that I do while I sew and/or quilt ... just wondering if I am the only on out there?

    1) Got a sewing calendar for 2011 and went through the entire calendar and picked a project I liked more than the one they picked for today because I wanted something fun and easy to do and did not like the project they had for today ...

    2) All of my WIPs and UFOs go in the same drawer in my sewing room so that I know where they are ...

    3) If I have big projects going at multiple times then all the items needed (fabric and thread and patterns) live in tidy little toteboxes until they move out and are either finished or moved into the WIP/UFO drawer

    4) I sew barefoot ... can't seem to sew in shoes or socks ... but I will often wear one sock on my left foot (I sew with my right foot)

    I am sure I have several other little oddities but that is all I can think of at this time ... ANYWHO ... I am off to make cute little baby blocks :) Time to go dig into the stash :)

    HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! May this year bless you all with swift needles and even stitches :)

    Happy New Year Gecko girl, and best wishes for the little 'bun in the oven'! Can't wait to hear the good news of the birth.

    Well, I'm with you on most of these. Except, I keep all of my thread in two plastic totes so that I can check on all of my colors. I have a fear of running out of thread! And instead of one sewing drawer for my projects, I have a whole closet with shelves and the plastic tote boxes are stacked in there, labeled with the project name and recipient! I can sew in socks, but not shoes! I wear sandals to classes so that I can slip them off under the table when I sew!!! So you don't sound "weird" to me!!

    I too sew barefooted, don't know why or how it started but cannot feel the rhythm when I have socks for shoes on.

    I sew barefooted or with a sock on if it is cold in the sewing studio. Also keep projects together otherwise the fabric gets used. Have lots of projects started but am trying to make a New Years resolution to not start any new projects (except for ggd quilt) until I finish at least one UFO.

    I have to have my slippers on. But I do keep all the stuff for a perticular quilt all together. I like organization, so I am forever folding fabric going through drawers etc. Actually, I think I get more moving stuff around than I do sewing!! LOL

    Hmmm I don't know if I am organized or unorganized, I have certain fabrics grouped together for Ruben's lap quilt, Uncle Dan's quilt, MIL, quilt, Nino's quilt. Some are bagged and tagged with patterns, some aren't! I throw the scraps into a trash can and go through it later to sort through. The room I use is suppose to eventually turn into a guest bedroom. I think the patio could accomodate our guests LOL


    After I am done with my living room quilt, I will start on Jojo's heart quilt, I've got plenty of heart fabric to make her a pretty special quilt in honor of my son.

    I LIKE your quirks...sounds to me like you are very organized. That is my New Year's resolution - get my life (especially my sewing room) organized. Happy New Year to all!
