It is day one of the Final Countdown annually sponsored by Prairie Moon Quilts. The idea is to “out with the old and in with the new” in your sewing space. All of us lose control of certain aspects of creative organization.
Today’s challenge was to CLEAR OFF ONE FLAT SURFACE. This one was not too hard for me. I am not a “visual organizer.” Once I use something it is usually put away. But there is that dresser.
This dresser was purchased used by my parents for my nursery. That was many years ago. It has been through a lot and is nearly falling apart, but it is my primary storage center for notions–thread, trims, buttons, etc. And the top is where I keep my music and a few other things.
OK, right now QUITE A FEW other things.
But, a little cleaning and sorting and the space is as good as new.
I even pulled the dresser out from the wall and cleaned under and behind it, but I didn’t dare take pictures. It had been a while (quite a while) and fabric generates dust. And there were spiders.
So, here is my after. And now I want to go sew something. See you back here tomorrow with the day 2 challenge. I wonder what she’ll have for us then?
