Cleaning my sewing room??

I actually didn't intend to clean the sewing room.... No, really. I didn't.

It's just that I wanted to make some room in the 'scrap drawers' where I keep my strings, and turn them into 'coins' (hence moving them to a different storage area). Then I could use the drawers that the strings were in and put my selvedges in them. I think I have enough selvedges to make quite a few quilts.... I'll have to work on that.

I actually, combined a few PIGS which are more like WHIMMS, and took some overflowing bins and traded spaces with colors that were a little less than full.
(I sort almost all my boxes into color. This doesn't count the boxes that are strictly Xmas, batik, oriental, wilds, etc... )

I never did anything with the batting storage since that's in an out of the way place in the top of the closet, but I'll sort through that at a later time.

Doesn't it feel great to do some cleaning? I went through some of my batting and measured it and attached notes that said the size. It almost immediately paid back my time as within a week I was able to read the notes to figure out the size I needed for a little quilt without having to take out each piece and measure it. Ah, a time saver to be sure! Now if I would only get to quilting the little piece! Soon, soon. B.

I hate to clean my sewing room. But it is nice to have it all sorted out for a project. A couple of months ago I ironed and cut up a lot of scraps. I gave some of the ironed strings away (we used them at the MN Heartstrings sew in), the bricks and 2.5" noodles are waiting for me to have time to play with them.
