15 minute spiff up

Time to look at your magazines -- keep them and organize them or dump them and use the space for more fabric or?  

The choice is yours. 

This is my stack of magazines that I've not gone through yet.
I'll work on them this week and see what I can get rid of or put in the magazine holders.

Check your cutting tables and your sewing space.  
Are they still clean?  Is stuff creeping back to those surfaces?  
If so, do a quick spiff up of those two areas. 

My cutting table has things that I'm cutting on it.
My pressing table is has nothing on it but the applique items.
they actually are staying clean.

Praire Moon Organization challenge

This week's task is
Work on your one UFO that is closest to finished

I think I will pick the batik 9 patch.
It is one I want done.
I just hope my tension issues get fixed and it quilts nicely.

This is the quilt.

it's been awhile since I cut these baby clothes.
This is what I got done this morning at Carol's.
I'm making progress and need to start sewing them together.

Bonnie is also working on organization.  I needed to work on my thread drawer.  I have this one done
Embroidery thread is so pretty.
I have one more place thread is kept, but it isn't used all that much, so it should be in order.

Cleaned out a drawer

Prairie Moon is doing an organizational challenge
it was clean out a drawer week.  I have so many drawers that I just took the next one to do and it was my embroidery stabilizer drawer.
Here is is ready to use the items.
I can see them now.

My week was taken up with doing uniforms for the band.
I didn't even get to touch my machines.
I pray this week is better.
