I am excited that the weekend is upon us!
I am especially glad that we will be having gorgeous weather here.
(although I know we need the rain... but that can come during the week
when I am working right)?
I might even wash my car.
I have a some sewing I am planning to do.
But it's a secret project... my lips are sealed and the door to
my sewing room is closed, drapes are drawn... just in case you are
thinking about coming by to peek! ha
I have been trying to weed out my pattern stash and narrow down
the number from gazillion to a comfortable 100 or so.
The problem with that is... I see old patterns and I still want to make them.
Make them now!
Then there is the stack that are for someday...
when I get more skilled at quilting...
like a pineapple quilt.
Do you have one of those "ultimate quilts" on your list?
(still working on this same pattern)
As I peruse through my assortment I find myself singing (in my head)
the song from Frozen...
Let it go... let it go!
I do feel good about releasing and up-cycling the patterns.
I have even been able to let go of some of my Fig Tree & Co.
patterns... and I have (had) nearly all of them.
(still top on my keep list, pattern by A Vintage Spool)
Right now... I have
(using Thelma's binder method of organization)
5 binders of projects. 1 for applique, 1 for embroidery, 1 for purses and
pincushions or other "makery" kind of things...
and 2 for patterns.
Those are pretty easy to divide into sections since I have probably
about 4 main designers that seem to keep me busy and another couple
that I am quite fond of.
When I am done with all that
(something I can do while watching evening TV)
I will move on to sorting and folding fabric.
I discovered that I have a nice collection of vintage suitcases and
train cases... they will be perfect for holding the stash 'o fabrics!
Remember when you would practically sit on a suitcase to get it closed?
In the meantime... I am talking myself into an up-coming quilt along...
and then talking myself out of it.
What are your thoughts?
