Many Days of Organization

My school semester was over on Monday, I had two projects due and an exam. Afterwards I came home to my sewing room and just walked away again, because the place was a mess!

I'd bought a few things, and taken out many fabrics off my shelves and left everything in piles on all the surfaces, although my friend pointed out that at least the floor was clear... small victories....

On Tuesday night, I started in to actually sort and put things away. And on Wednesday I began the long process of wrapping fabrics on comic book boards, and by Thursday finally began to reorganize my drawer unit of small cuts so that all the solids could be together.

And on Friday, I had enough room to cut on the cutting board and iron on the ironing board, so I made some pillows, which is the easiest thing, but satisfying, especially after weeks of not having time to sew:

They are this fantastic Rashida Coleman-Hale print on the front and plain old Essex Linen on the back.

Other organizing has been labeling my Kona charm packs:

Currently, I have three packs out of eight done, but it's easy enough sitting in front of the tv work.

And I also made a color card from my RJR cotton supreme fabrics using glue (mod podge) and bristol paper, and the handy labels that Pink Castle provides on their solid cuts:

This is about five or six Color Inspirations bundles worth of colors, plus a few colors I got yardage of (Battleship, guys, so good), so I guess I have a long way to go still! I haven't been in the club, but have been picking up the odd spare bundle from the shop, but I am planning to join in the new year and getting all the bundles! Next year's line up looks very exciting.
