    What are we organizing today (2017)?

    Ready to get started? I'd like to go through one of my drawers in the shelves underneath the sewing machine. Who knows what I'll find! And you?

    Thanks for starting this thread.

    On Friday I was given a grocery bag full of trims and a cardboard box containing a huge black trash bag with a lot of fabric, notions and trims that came out of my grandmother's house. I will go through those today and decide what to keep and what to donate. Then I need to put away all the keepers.

    my goals for this week are to:
    1. take the filled donation boxes to goodwill.
    2. Go through the paperwork catchall sitting on my office desk, assign a storage space for the paperwork that needs to be kept and get rid of everything else.

    My goal today is to create a nice clean sewing environment for myself! I let my room get completely cluttered with fabrics after completing the last few quilts that I worked on, now I'm so overwhelmed by it all that I just dread going in there! Therefore today I will clear up the mess. I started to make a DP9 and I need to wait for a delivery of some fabric I ran out of so this is the perfect opportunity to get this under control! I can conquer this!

    I had a really busy December because it was the bi-annual Christmas gathering of family. We had 11 people here and I had made 12 of the Christmas gifts. Now, January is the time to get re-organized for the upcoming year. I also need to finish some paper work to end the year and get ready for tax time. I also plan to purge all the closets and drawers. I do a pretty good job of keeping this done on an ongoing basis but once a year it is done on a large scale. I just don't want to deal with stuff I don't want or need. I look forward to doing this annual task.

    It's going to take me more than one day to organize and clean my sewing room. Two days ago I listed the ufos that are floating around my house and I can't believe there are so many. I wish there was a "UFO" group I can join that would help to motivate me and then we can show the ufos that are finished. And I'm writing this as I drink my coffee trying to get the 'get up and go' moving. LOL

    There is a 2017 UFO group (2017 UFO Challenge of the Month). I am hoping it will help motivate me to finish some of my unfinished projects before starting new ones.

    Today I'll start organizing by making list of what needs to be organized/finished/started/given away/tossed. I do better working from paper when the task is so large.

    Somehow this last year I purchased boxes of quilt magazines. Got them at used stores and garage sales. My goal is to go through them and donate back what I will not use. I have taken the pages out of some but now I have loads of notebooks that take up space. Guess it is time to get back to using only what I buy and only buying what I will use.
    Is that possible for a quilter?

    There are a lot of drawers that I haven't been into in the last 2 years. Going to get in there and start some throwing!
