Holiday weekends are good for projects...

IMG_0372 The closet under the stairs in my sewing room hasn't been accessed for years.  Why?   Because it was so crammed with stuff - wall to wall and floor to ceiling - you couldn't get in it.   Just opening the door, you risked a shower of junk raining down upon you.


My sweet and helpful DD helped me clean out that closet today.  From something you couldn't get into, to something that has 2 organized stacks of quilt project boxes and room for a skinny 10-year old to lay down in between.   The cardboard boxes behind the project boxes are my old Barbie collection and DH's comic book collection.


Ah - it feels good to be organized.


I didn't find as many forgotten quilt project treasures as I had hoped for, but I'm happy with the progress we were able to make.


Now to tackle the one remaining closet in my sewing room, and I know that one is only quilt fabrics, so I'm bound to unearth some treasures within.


I hope you're all having a wonderful, long, relaxing weekend.

  2. Twenty-eight projects?? WOW! You'd best teach the ten-year old to sew, and I'll bet she's interested if she hung in there long enough to help you hoe that closet out! LOL WTG on the organization.
