Nearing the end of February, I am assessing my “to-do” list and taking note of progress made on some of the list, but not so much on others – like major revamping the laundry room and master bath. But that will come when that money tree blooms in the spring.
Now if you will note, the issue above is from last February – a good read about organizing your stuff. For the most part I consider myself organized – at least the outer appearance is so around the house. There are even vintage picnic hampers to store things in. Out of sight, out of mind…….
…until the cabinet doors are opened…
…to the “stash-o-fabrics” – my Fort Knox of textiles, if you will.
I’ve arranged them by color, but just not so perfectly folded and stacked like the magazine photo below. But hey, when you sew, you make messes and it takes more time to clean up those messes than the time it takes to create a project. Would you give me a head nod in agreement?
I thought you might understand.
Organizing is important, I agree, but it doesn’t have to be perfect all of the time. Makes me think of a guy I used to work with who’s hair lifted off his head in a strong gust of wind. That same gust of wind blew through my fabric stash. Nothing in life stays perfect, not even the hair.
Staying organized is a job in itself. My famous last words are "I will keep it this way..." - yea, right.
