What is it about the upcoming New Year that makes me want to get organized? I guess its like opening a never read book and seeing that pristine first page before you. What will the story be, what journey will I take?
And so, I have totally reorganized my fiber rods. I'm sorry I didn't take a 'before' picture. Some things are best not shown. But here is the 'after' and I'm so pleased with it. I have organized each rod to hold a certain type of fiber. Some of them are ribbons, some are chenille, some are quite glittery and fluttery. At least now I know what I have.
Next came my fabric stash. I know that compared to most of my friends my fabric collection seems quite small - but most of what I do involves very little fabric. However, I can never say no to an interesting piece. So my wire baskets now hold the various types of fabric. A couple of my favorites are the wool felt pieces that I've collected and the flannel that sits there, unused, but much loved.
I'm not quite finished as you can see here. My 'bits and bobs' metal basket is filled to the brim with things both known and unknown. This will be an adventure -- not only to go through everything but to then figure out a good way to sort it all out. Sounds like I have a few more hours to go before I can say 'job well done'.
Happy New Year!
