Tackle it Tuesday: More Sewing Room Organizing

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Now that all the birthday and Valentine celebrations are over, I'm ready to get back to tackling my sewing room, one small bite at a time. Today, I'm sorting through the pile of notions and patterns in the corner and getting it organized into the white cupboard at the right. The drawer carts hold my quilting scraps, and I also need to decide where those are going to live:


Once that's finished, I'm going to finally get this charity quilt top layered and pinned. Maybe even get started on the quilting, too. We'll see how that goes.


Not only would it be a huge relief to get this quilt done, it would make just a little more space in my sewing room -- for more projects! So, I'd better get going and get it done, then I'll post an update later today.

Update: 2:30 p.m.

Where did all that stuff go???


Believe it or not, it's all in here:


The top two shelves hold all of my sewing notions, with room to spare (no worries, it'll be filled when I bring up the rest from the basement). The bottom two shelves hold my patterns, needlework supplies and fabric paints. It's SO nice to know right where everything is!

And here's the quilt top, layered, pinned and ready to quilt:


I've been procrastinating on this for weeks, so I can't believe how quickly it went. I may even get started on the quilting this afternoon. Thanks, once again, to Five Minutes for Mom's Tackle it Tuesday, for helping me to "just DO it!"
