Most of my patterns are now in the database and filed away. I decided, now that the closet door shuts, to move on to organizing the stitching fabric. (The regular fabric is going to remain jammed in a plastic tub resting on the closet shelf for now.)
I threw away all the scraps that were under 4" in any direction. I had one inch strips that I moved across country and stored for almost a year. WTF was I going to do with those? (All of a sudden I realize I could use those for scrapbooking borders! But what is done is done.) Hey, did I mention the closet door can be closed now?
I watched most of the Steelers/Jaguars game from behind the ironing board getting the wrinkles out of the scraps. Eventually, I will move on to organizing the whole pieces, but right now I am focusing on the scraps. After they are ironed, I am going to sew a tag on each piece that gives the measurements and tells what is known about the fabric. (Color? Do I look like I know what color each piece is?) And I will store it flat somewhere. We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
For now, things are getting steamy between me and my Sunbeam.
