Organize what you have

After my frustration with the mini duffel, I took a look at my sewing room and realized how much of a disaster it was. I took everything out of the cabinets and reorganized. I went through my patterns and weeded out the ones I know I will never use. Finally I refolded and organized my fabric. I realized that I have quite enough to work with for a while. I took out all the small odds and ends and am currently working on lots and lots of coasters. When I get finished I'll post them all and then I'll do a give away.
I finally found the blog that inspired me to 'use what I have.' It is called simplesparrow and the reason I couldn't find the post right away is because it was from about a month ago. Anyway, tonight I was looking at some of the sites I like to visit and I discovered that she just finished organizing her fabric. Great minds think alike, I guess.
I want to personally thank Xia (see her blog here) for encouraging me to dig the mini duffel out of the trash. It isn't often that a three month old tells you to do something so I figured I'd better do it! I dug it out of the trash, ripped about 1/2 of the seams and resewed. I'll get a picture up soon. I still don't love it but hope that someone may. Thanks Xia!

I am so impressed with your organization. Right now I miss my fabric stash. It is stuck in a few boxes in a friends basement until we hopefully sell this house. Ugh! Anyway, you have simply the best taste ever in fabric! The prints are lovely.

In Christ, Heather
