    Default 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.

    Sounds like there are quite a few of us that could play Ziploc poker

    T - is it TRUE?

    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
