S-l-o-w Organizing

     I am making the best attempt I can to organize my sewing space. I moved the Accuquilt cutter to another room, off my cutting counter. I bought some wire shelves at Target and got all my over-a-yard boxes off the floor. I am trying to get all boxes off the floor in my sewing room. The boxes are all the fabric I precut into set sizes. This long headache is wearing and I can't come up with solutions right now, so I am stalled.
Diecutter moved next to printers and papercutter

List of my fabrics I am collecting for projects in my cupboard

Project Fabrics collected along with Accuquilt dies.
Some yarn remains.

Sewing room not organized and clean enough, stalled.
New shelving, boxes off floor

List on wall of all the quilts I would like to make.
Better here than all jumbled in my head.

I think this is something we all struggle with. I know i do.

Your shelving worked well to organize the boxes of fabric pieces. I like your tidy little rows of notes of future quilts. I think I may need to do the same thing. My brain is packed too full right now.

Looks like you have a large, well lit place to create. It looks used and loved. Love the sticky wall of more jostling in the brain is a good thing in my book.

Nice to see your shelving full of fabric packed boxes - don't they look cute! Now, your notes - absolutely brilliant idea Linda and one I'm just going to have to copy. You're so right about all the ideas spinning around in our heads, tomorrow I'm going to get busy!!

The floor is my usual stacking spot and it drives me crazy! The notes of future quilts is a great idea.....I keep a list of ideas posted too. Workspace...we all need more.

Progress is good even if the headache is slowing you down. I have a notebook in the studio for future projects and albums of photos on my computer. More ideas than I'll ever use but it is fun to see which ones happen and which ones I fall out of love with over time. Like the new "fabric off the floor" system.

Not knowing what your organizational system was like before, it looks as though you have made wonderful progress? I love your shelving system with the clear boxes of fabric on them. Best wishes on completing your project and try not to get too overwhelmed.

I agree I'm going to have to copy some of your organization methods. I think the post it notes are great as they can be moved and rearranged as necessary. Excellent post, and just what I needed today.
