    Cleaning my studio and........

    I store my projects in 2 gallon Ziploc bags.....WOW!!! I need to get busy! I keep the projects in a set of drawers under my cutting table...guess I need to just start looking through there instead of watching videos.

    This is SOME of the projects, I'm not finished digging through everything yet. I have 3 quilt tops ready to be quilted...just need to get to it.

    wow, those all look like projects not started. I would go through them and see what looks the easiest and do it first, then look for the things that need done by a certain time, bday, Christmas, etc, and work on them. In between you will be filling more ziplock bags. LOL

        Oh Shirley. Mine are the same. A bunch of bags with patterns and fabric ready. About 10. And I still have about 8 to quilt, with backing pretty much ready. I need to stop shopping, stop looking at new patterns, and just sew, sew, sew. I would be busy for the next year just doing that.

        What is bad, is like you, they are tucked away neatly so I am not staring at them. I need a shelf that displays them proudly waiting for their turn to be picked lol.

        Happy Quilting

          Maybe I'll find a way to hang them on pegboard, without ripping the bags, and then they won't be out of sight and forgotten.

            Here I thought I was the only one with big eyes. LOL. The only thing that would keep me from drooling over new fabric offerings (like todays JR DD prismadyes) would be if I buried my credit card beneath the stack of Rubbermaid bins holding neatly organized yet unfinished projects.

              You two? I keep my "to do" projects in plastic bags, too..... I recently put them all in one spot, and was blown away.... Seriously? I don't need new projects..... But.....it 's so tempting to see what an idea will look like.... You know?

                DH gave me a good idea....I asked him if he saw all those bags on my table when he was in my room....of course he did *ha*

                He said I should get some bulldog clips and clip them to the bags and hang them on the pegboard. So I think that's what I'll do

                My first thought...was yeah get those hung up EYE CANDY!!!!

                  Shirley, just how big are those drawers??? lol

                  I keep some in bags, but they slide all over the place if I have them out. Your DH's idea sounds great. I have pinned some to my design wall, then have to take them down....its a good way to have them nag me to get done. You are right about the holes, though.

                      I too have that many bags of project as plus all my fabric that isn't bagged together as project. I would guess enough for three lifetimes.

                        Oh! I had to do a double take, as I first thought you posted pictures of MY projects! I have some projects in bags, and material designated for certain projects in plastic containers. And these are just projects that haven't been started. My UFO grouping is a separate matter! (Thank goodness for the 2015 Finishing Group.)

                        And yesterday I started a grouping called "do something with this". The "this" are unused blocks from completed projects. You know, they can make table toppers, pot holders, coasters and so on.

                        I have no excuse for getting into any kind of trouble, as I have more than enough to keep me busy.

                          Now THAT sounds like a blast.
                          or...or.... Ziploc exchange! Everyone exchanges a Ziploc bag with a project of similar size... hmmmm.... wait... nevermind - I guess the goal is to have fewer bags

                            Well....my DH said bulldog clips.....ummm he meant binder clips. I tried both.....the bulldog clips come off the bags, the binder clips work well.

                            Now I have to clean up the table and find a wall LOL......and that's just the beginning of what I have. I have projects in plastic storage boxes too. Then there is the yardage that we won't even discuss.

                            A jelly roll here, a layer cake there, here a charm pack, there a fat quarter, everywhere a bunch of projects!

                              I told DH my room is starting to look like a mix between a mechanic's workshop and a quilting studio. Thanks to M* and Harbor Freight LOL

                              I have 3 of those rolling toolbox's, I have one near my cutting table with supplies I use there, one near my quilting frame and the other one I haven't decided what I'll use it for yet.

                              I saw these workbenches in the Harbor Freight ad so yesterday we bought two of them, I am using one for my embroidery table and the other will be a design table with my computer and such.


                              They may not be "pretty" but they are functional and heavy duty.
