    jmoore- yes, I need more hours in each day, at least 24 more LOL. Actually, I just need to learn to say no and that I don't have to try and grab every artistic opportunity that comes my way--- or at least to plan a little better so that I already have things ready to go when an opportunity does present itself.

    I’ve a busy weekend organizing my fabric. I spent yesterday finding & ruler folding fabric yardage. I put denim & similar fabrics for tote bags in one large basket. Three other baskets are holding quilt fabric, arranged by color families. They look neat & now I hate to disturb them! Today was scrap day. I went through smaller cuts, pieces left from quilts, & pieces I’ve cut into. I cut these into the largest squares l, blocks, & strips I could. Anything between 3/4” & 2” went into the Strings pile. I’ve put them into clear plastic shoeboxes by color, & they’re ready to use! Both days passed quickly & my feet hurt from standing so much, but I’ve had fun doing it.

    Good job, Conchalea!

    I was spinning my feet earlier today. I couldn’t get motivated to make the BOW so I decided to start sewing some scraps from my ‘less than 2” wide’ drawer. I started with 2-3” lengths I had bagged and just sewed pairs together either side by side or end to end. Then I sewed a few of the pairs into 4’s. Now I need to iron them.

    Wow, all that snow! This is the time of year that I am really grateful to be living in the South. Brrrrrrrr.....

    Well, I cleaned house today so I feel very virtuous. No sewing time today but I did straighten up my sewing area and got it ready to be used.

    Everybody in the snow and ice, stay warm and safe.

    I cleaned my living room! Pulled out the couch cushions and vacuumed...so glad I do not have carpet...I don't know how many times I cleaned up the floor...lots of little crumbles all over. And then the Grands started trickling in..no school..lots of snow on their boots and pant legs that puddles in the mudroom. After they left I pulled up the rugs from the floor there and threw them in the wash...tomorrow's another day at home.

    Connie love your mindless sewing. I, too, do that when I want to sew and just not think! Almost done with the homespun quilt tops...maybe tonight.

    At the beginning of the year I set goals for decluttering in Jan, Feb and March. Due to the gallbladder surgery, I fell a little behind, but managed to do a modest declutter of the hallway. My Feb. goal was to get the sewing studio/guest bedroom decluttered. The main problem areas have been the guest bed and the nightstand which are always piled high with WIPs and the side of the room that contains my Sweet Sixteen, small cutting table and the recliner that sits in the corner between the nightstand and the cutting table. The bed, nightstand, recliner and cutting table are always piled high with WIPs and an assortment of other things that don't have a home.

    After looking at a variety of storage solutions I got some great, relatively inexpensive, plastic drawer units from Target. They are meant to sit on a desktop but the drawers are 14" so they can hold 12" blocks. Each drawer unit has 3 drawers and runs around $12. I bought 4 and stacked them 2 high on the radiator that sits behind my small cutting table. They took the place of a wire rack that was filled with an odd assortment of containers holding UFOs that were still in small pieces and various odds and ends. It looks so much better and holds everything that was in the wire rack plus some additional UFOS that were stored in those plastic scrapbook paper envelopes and stuck in a cardboard box under the table. That left room in the cardboard box for me to put some WIPs (in protective plastic) that were too big for the drawer units. Now my WIPs have a place of their own that's easily accessible without being stacked all over the guest bed and the chair! Progress

    Rob, it sounds like you have made great headway on your February goal. I’m glad you found containers to better organize your WIPs and UFO’s and I bet it feels great to have it neat and tidy. Congratulations on your decluttering progress.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
