getting organized


I added this small dry erase board just outside the sewing room. I am hoping it will keep me on track. I think I have sew-er's ADD! Somedays I just flit around from pile of fabric to pile of fabric. Next leaders/enders I need, I am starting to cut into my scraps. It will take me a bit, but I think I can get the room tamed for GOOD. I already have a bag of white elephant goodies to take to Lunch Bunch next week. You can just see my reflection! Good thing you could not see much..I think I was still in my jammies! lolol





I took 2 fleece remnants from my little sew-er's projects. I sewed them up...stuffed them with polyfil (sitting in the back of the studio for YEARS gathering dust!) and layers of batting scraps. The batting kinda evened out the lumpy parts of the stuffing. Both dogs now have nice fleece beds in there. That will help me keep the area 'fabric pile free' if there are dogs laying on them! There is just one problem...no dogs are laying on them yet! I may have to resort to putting them on top of the beds in our bedroom...

I think I need to make my pooch a fleece bed. I can't find the right size pillow form so I might just have to go the fiber fill route.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who suffers from sewers ADD, welcome to the flitters.....

I have 10 yards of tie-dye fleece that I promised to make quillows with for my 3 teenage girls. Um...they are 21, 23, 25, lol...no time like the present, huh?

Maybe toss the pillow ON the dog while they sleep. It'll get their scent on it!

Not sure if it is ADD or what but I identify with the "flitting" from one pile to the next..........and somedays the end result is just a movement of fabric that never sees the machine or the storage shelf.

I would make the cat a pillow but she has taken a old pair of my husbands sweat pants over as her bed. They were headed for the trash so she can keep them.

Glad you had your daughter home for the holidays and were able to go play with the little ones at church. Big or little, kids are what it is all about.

Love your eraser board and your pups' new beds, Beth! That fleece is just too cute. :D I was so glad to see that your Princess made it home for the holidays. :D
