It Starts Here

I've just done a post over on my other blog about my goals for 2013. Notice I said goals, not resolutions?? Am I just kidding myself? Hope not!

Well the one I didn't mention over there was sewing more - mainly because it's the one I am least confident about...I always plan to sew more, but it rarely happens. Any way, hopefully the BOM and Sew Your Stash Thin challenges will help.

One of my problems at the moment is a lack of organisation. There is nothing worse than wanting to sew but not being able to find what you are after. So my first step is to organise my stash. It's not a huge stash, but it has no rhyme or reason at the moment.

This is it, pulled out of drawers and cupboards and thrown in two tubs. I plan to sort by colour, florals, girls, boys and anything else that makes sense as I go through it. I'm very lucky that back in September my mother in law sorted through my scraps box and bagged them all in different sizes. I'll keep this system for the smaller pieces. Then I plan to put them in plastic see through tubs and store them for easy access.

Wish me luck!

Good luck Kylie. I'm looking forward to the follow up pictures with your perfectly organised fabric :-)
