Ready for action!
I'm not completely done with reorganizing/cleaning my sewing room, but at least I feel like I can finally get to some serious stash-busting! As you can see, my closet is overflowing with supplies and partially completed projects. It's time for me to get to work!
How did I accomplish this feat? I popped the A&E version of Pride & Prejudice into the DVD player and set mini goals for the 40-45 minutes between each round of exercise. When Carol came over after school, she moved the heavy objects for me. I have a book by Nancy Zieman titled 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew, which is my inspiration for breaking monumental tasks into do-able goals. Thank you, Nancy!
If you look at the shelving picture and focus on the corner shelf, you can see that I stole a framing idea from Sherry Pence. Sherry and Laura each sent me tatted pieces with sympathy cards when my dad passed away, and I wanted these special pieces to have a prominent place in my sewing room. Thank you Sherry and Laura! Your friendship means more to me than I can express!
Now, it's time to begin the stash-busting!
