Welcome 2015

Here we are ushering in another New Year!!  I hope everyone had a joyous holiday season, not too stressful, and looking forward to new ideas to keep those “little grey cells” active 🙂

Just updated my blog on sewing knit cuffs with more detailed pictures and instructions.  Check it out!!

New goals and resolutions always seem to get me started in a new year.  First on my list is to reorganize my sewing/craft room.  Did a ton of projects and, of course, pulled out all my stash fabric and yarn and now have to put it all away until the next idea pops in my head!!

I do organize my fabrics and yarns by type (cotton, acrylic, thread,) rather than color.  I use clear, plastic bins so I can quickly look inside even though I put labels on the outside of each bin too.

I have several thread holders mounted on my wall beside my sewing machines so I can quickly see what color I need and just purchased another ribbon organizer for my growing  spools of grosgrain ribbon.

Working on putting my patterns into notebooks, still like to use paper and don’t keep everything on the computer/iPad in case something goes awry in the computer world.  I’m not very good about keeping things backed up 🙁

As you begin your new year, I would love to hear how you keep your sewing/craft room organized.  Always looking to share new tips and ideas and ways to recycle things I have at home to help me stay organized too.

HAPPY CREATING!!
