I really overdo it. I have a 2 bedroom home and definitely don't want to store more paper and such. Space saving techniques are what I want.
I scan the picture of whatever quilt project I want to save. then I scan each page of directions. I have a file with just the pictures of the finished projects and another of it all.
For example: Winter Leaves had a picture of the finished quilt in the one file ... then Winter Leaves, with a pg1, pg2, etc are in the whole directions file.
That way I can do a slide show to see what I might want to make, then go to the full directions file for the rest.
Yes, I do back it up so if my computer crashes, I still have my info.
Of course, right now my one arm is in a sling and I am back on steroids so ... I am behind again. Oh well, something to do later on.
