I haven't been getting much finished on the garment making side of things. Life is busy, and in my sewing time I've been working on some small art quilts -- one just started and one an older project I've gotten back out to finish. I've just used basting spray for the first time to prep these for stitching and it is FAB! I'll never go back. Lots left to do on these, but I was missing the feeling of prepping a garment. So there's some cutting going on as well.
What you can't see in the picture is that for the last week or so I've also been deep cleaning and reorganizing my stash. Yikes, so much to look at and it all takes SO much time. I'm nearly there now, just a few more decisions to make and a couple more bins to buy and it should all be somewhat tidier and all the fabric more accessible. That will be a huge relief, and I'm hoping it will also make it easier to grab what I need from my stash without searching for hours. All this 'getting ready' makes me feel like projects will be coming soon. That's the plan anyhow...
Do you need a tidy space to work or do you prefer more of a creative mess? I've always been solidly on the mess side, but I'm finding that I am starting to need more organization. I guess it's a balance. And I hope I find the right ratio!
Definitely a creative mes with some organization if that makes sense. I do feel that more organization would be helpful!ReplyDelete
Yes, I think I'm getting to that same stage!Delete
I'm a dedicated "place for everything and everything in its place" person. How exciting that you are making some art quilts!ReplyDelete
Oh, way more organized than I am :) Yes, I'm loving the creative element to art quilting -- I've even joined SAQA to inspire me!Delete
