I did some organizing this week that wasn't exactly voluntary. I hang a lot of yardage in the closet in my sewing room. I guess I hung too much and the rod came down! I had to take all the fabric on hangers into the guest room and lay it on the bed. I decided to pack some in boxes since I had no idea how long it would be until my husband could put the rod up. I did a bit of sorting and tossed out a kitchen trash bag full of fabrics. I also discovered that I have a lot of nice rayons. I used to use rayon a lot for clothing but I mostly don't wear that type of clothing anymore so I've decided to replace some of my pajama pants that are wearing out with rayon ones! I made some before out of rayon and they're wonderful to sleep in. I packed the rayons in a box and plan to make a few pairs of pj pants out of them when I finish the quilt I'm doing for my husband.

Oh that's a great idea, cashs_mom! I too have some outdated rayons. Rayon is a a natural cellulose fiber so it breathes. It does like to shrink though, so I'm sure you have prewashed it.

I’m in the home stretch now. We have charity bins in the building and I’m adding clothes and a few kitchen items. I’ve tackled both closets in my room and gone through the linens. I expected to purge a lot of clothes only to discover it matches my color analysis. I had to get rid of one piece. Since I’m going to Toastmasters I’ve decided to keep the dress slacks.

The spice jars I purchased were too small. I’m exchanging them for a larger size and replacing the spring top Ikea jars with slender ones from Weck.

I'm currently in a huge mess! I have 4 projects going at once (I never learn!) and can't find a thing. So today I may just pick it all up. I'd much rather sew but oh well...........
And my Mookie man jumps into my chair the minute we enter the sewing room so I guess today will be his lucky day haha

Today I am starting the deep clean of my sewing room/biggest guest room. I started by taking pictures of the whole room, then of sections to work on in 15-minute increments. That's the best way I've found to stay focused.
I take pictures after each 15 minutes to see my progress.

As soon as I (or my son can help me) figure out how to get my phone to (once again) give me the option of file size before I send the pictures to my email, I'll upload them. Right now the files are too big. I'm not sure why the option disappeared. All I know is I'm tired and I've only been at this cleaning thing an hour and 15 minutes. Oy.

I found more energy after a short break. So the sum of my progress today included

-making the bed and dusting the headboard
=clearing off my ironing table, putting things where they go
-washing all the ironing table covers (long overdue task)
-decluttering the floor under the table, preparing it to vacuum
-decluttering my sewing table, and underneath it
- cleared out 1/2 the stuff under the bed--and found my 10 year anniversary wedding band that had gone missing!!!
-taking the curtains down to wash
- finally reorganized my pegboard which I've been procrastinating for 2 years. Crazy it only took about 40 minutes to reconfigure the things on it. My goal was to organize the rulers by size , to reduce my frustration of having to move so many different ones to get to the one I really want. And of course, I had to make new labels for the fun of it!

I made a pair of pj pants out of rayon years ago. I wore them until they practically fell apart. They were so soft and comfy and not too warm for the hot climate here. Thanks for the washing reminder. Rayons do shrink. A lot!

Zozee: Way to go! I’m sure glad you found your anniversary band.
