Motivation Friday

Saturday, January 7, 2012
Oops--I realized on Thursday I forgot to post any goals.  25 Anita's Arrowhead blocks completed this week.  

One of my 2012 guidelines was to sort/clean one spot in my stash each month---today I did my cutting table.  Okay--you say that's not much??  My table is 9 foot long and 30 inches wide--that can hold a LOT of stash when you pile it two foot deep!  Fabric was refolded and sorted by color.   I cut a noodle from each piece for the noodle basket.  Bricks for the brick stash.  And a 8.5" strip for my Arrowhead stash.   Some went directly into my scrap box, I am pleased to report I have a full box again.   



Did you see the heat wave we are having?   South Dakota was warmer than MIAMI!!!  Yes--parts of South Dakota saw 70F.  The high at our house was 68F.   Although its good to be home--I miss Mason and Asher.

You're warmer than I am by 10+degrees! Good work taking care of so much stash!

I've begun packing for the house to go on the market, and that means I've been sorting through my stash. Some of it will getbwrapped around the china, but I have to make sure I don't need it for any of the projects on my list!

This really was a lovely week here in Gods country. I am also trying to get more organized. But I have started in a different room - not ready to clean up my sewing room yet.

It always feels good to tidy the cutting table. Mine becomes a convenient place to put things as I clean the rest of the house, so when I am ready to sew, I have to do that first. Sometimes, it seems overwhelming. I really must find a new system.

I'll admit I had to laugh a little when I read blog posts from snowbirds in Florida complaining about the cold when it was so nice here. As much as you miss Mason & Asher it probably feels good to sleep in your own bed and play with your stash.

My cutting table isn't that long, but it probably carries as much mess right now! Still recovering from Wrap Central last month. Slowly, slowly cleaning the whole room.....

Oh shush, we had a very cold day at 33 degrees on Friday here in Oregon. We seem to be colder each year, or I getting older that I feel it. But I have to say very little rain has fallen this year. Have a great day.

She only did it so I wouldn't when I come in February. You watch, she will throw out her trash box too. Pure mean.
