    I went through all of my fabrics and cut the pieces I had laid aside into the 2in squares for my postage stamp quilt. It took literally hours, but finally they are all together. I also organized all of my fabrics. I know it wont last long, but it looks good for the moment lol.

    Congratulations!! Same here amma..... too disorganized to organize. Too much fabric, too many projects, no designated sewing room. I actually use my china cabinet to store some of my fabric since I sew on the dining room table anyway.

    LOL I dont have a sewing area either unfortunately. I just have a table that I bring back and forth down the hallway from my bedroom to the living room. I am however lucky enough to have a HUGE closet. My DH and I have dressers in our room so the whole thing is mine for all of my quilting supplies (and some seasonal storage). I am positive this will not last long....I give it a week if I am lucky then I will be back to my chaoticness haha :D

    Oh, gosh, I'm jealous! I want to get organized again, I want my pretty fabrics all to be in order, I plan every day to do it :roll: but somehow the needle on the machine keeps calling my name and I'm off and pushing the pedal again instead of organizing. I'm hopeless but I did get the threads all off the carpet (IF I could only get all the stuff out to put down wood floors instead of carpet) but then I began cutting that lovely lavendar to put together more pillow shams for the beautiful little girls...oh, yeah, I have the snoopy quilt to work on today, the off center square for Micah, the fallen hero. I'd better get off and back to the chaos..

    I didn't get as much done as you but made considerable progress on my grandson's quilt. I hope to get the top finished over the New Year's weekend.

    Congratulations on getting your fabrics organized. I still haven't done that. :(

    I've decided that if I organized, my cat wouldn't know where to sleep! Congrats....I do love it when my room is all nice and neat...it just doesn't happen very often!

    well, I am at the point if I don't keep it all organized, I can't possibly work.
    I know that makes me a minority, but I have lots of stuff. I don't look down my nose at those that don't stay organized, bc I am that way, every other hour. It's a constant battle I tell you,...and yes, it does eat up quilting time.
    I just can't create in craziness, and I am constantly making craziness as I create...it's a doggone vicious cycle!
    Want an example?

    This is only part of my sew-cave, and i am still cleaning and straightening, but shelves galore, have stuff neatly stacked, in other parts of room. will get around to posting more, one day :)

    Thank you for inspiration to move forward. I was blessed to have my neice want the beds in a guest room. That was my signal to create this as my sewing studio. The room is large, hard wood floors. three windows . I have started and it is so wonderful to have an organized room. It quiets my spirit and lets me fell creative, even if not yet :lol: My challenge is to use what I already have in the house to make this work without spending a fortune. I saw a wonderful folding quilting table for $400 and realized, I have an old oak table in the dinning room that does that!!! DH hleped me lug it upstairs and WOW this works for me. I will post pictures when it is completed.

    Well I spent a lot of time cleaning and getting all my UFO organized for a challenge I am in. Got my list made and ready to go shopping at the joanns sale. Next week everything will be a big mess again. I try to be organized but sometimes its just does'nt work. Thank goodness I have a sewing room and can just close the door when i leave.
