Revisiting An Older Post & Moving Forward

Hey everyone & happy Wednesday.  Hope your day is going great!  I was up at my usual "o'dark-30" morning time, just doing some blog hopping & catching up on parties, when I discovered a cute party going on at Delightful Order and wanted to share my  "My Play Room" post from many months ago.  If you have a craft or sewing room & are looking for some clever & fresh ideas, go check this out.

Well, I shared a couple of days ago that I was going to move forward on some projects that I had put "on hold" because our house is for sale.  I made my list & have started working.  Thought I'd share a couple of pics of what I'm going to be working on.

This is how I sort & store my fabric projects.  These are lidded drawers that snap close so nothing falls out if I want to move it from one location to another.  Most of you know me by now--each drawer is labeled with whatever project is inside.  There are 7-drawers altogether (got them at Target) & the unit is on wheels.  I have another one of these that holds my scrapbooking projects & there is a drawer for each grandchild & one for all the rest of us--I have my priorities straight, huh?  LOL!!!


This is a quilt for one of the grand twins.  All the pieces are cut & labeled, & any leftover fabric is in a zip bag in case I mess something up or maybe I'll want to make a teddy bear to go along with the quilt.


This is the quilt for the other twin.  I kind of work on these simultaneously.  You can see I've already started the piecing process, but at the end of the day, I just lay everything back inside these drawers.  That way it's easier to keep thing tidy & not lose any pieces.


This will be the next project which is a summer skirt for me.  Isn't this fabric a beautiful color?  It's a gauze material so it will be so comfy for hot weather.  It's already cut out, & the thread & elastic are under the fabric.


The next project on my priority list is a Christmas tablerunner, probably for me.  I made several of these last year for other people & decided I'd like to have one.  I am making it with the intention of using it in the new house.  I always put filled bobbins & spools of thread in each of these drawers so I don't have to dig around for the right color thread.


So, aren't you glad you stopped by?  Well, I'm very glad you did and hope you pop in again very soon.
