    Default Here's how i clean up my sewing room!

    I have a tendancy to just put things in piles off to the side when i finish something... This results in a LOT of little groups of fabrics that go together, but are less than a yd of fabric or chopped of pieces of FQ, or precuts....
    SOOOOOOO in true GB style i look and say.... hummmm what can i make?
    Here is the project.... and i am KEEPING it... which is something i never do,, but it works in my dining room and Hubs likes it... joy oh joy....)Click image for larger version.

    LOL Barb. I also put things in piles, until I can't find things and need to clean up! Right now, I have two plastic bins full of stuff!!
    I love your table runner and glad you found enough left overs to make something for yourself. It's very pretty!

    Looks so pretty on your table, great clean up! I just have piles and they usually never turn into something so nice.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    That is really pretty. One of my goals this year is to use my scraps more than to just fill up tubs of scraps.

    Great job.
