During this major "clean-up", I bagged up all of my "UFO's" to make room for the New sewing projects. I like to keep my projects in giant clear zip-loc bags. Once they are cut out, they go back in the bag, along with the necessary trims, buttons, etc. All ready for sewing!
I even organized all of my serger threads (see the two plastic boxes to the bottom left) and then filed away all of my patterns that were laying about. I have lots of these little plastic crates that I keep my more popular patterns in - just ready to be snatched out for action. Each box holds a particular type of garment; i.e. skirts, blouses, etc. This is my ladies' section of the "library"! The adjacent shelf holds my current children's patterns! Why you can even see the carpet in here now - amazing! And, it feels so good.
And, check out this sewing area!
See . . . there are pattern pieces on the work area ready to go and the machine is all threaded up! Yeah . . .I am ready to get to work! Ah, but is it really "work" ~ no, this is the fun part!
