I stepped into my sewing room and decided to start at the door and work my way around. I folded the fabric near the door and put it in a stack to be put away. I took a few items and flung them to the place in the room where their "relatives" reside. I looked up at the stack of cross stitch stuff and froze. Knowing how long it takes me to cross stitch an item I stopped my sorting. I was overwhelmed with how much stuff I have in just that one category!
I started writing my categories of things that I have in my room and then general categories under that such as thread, fabric, tools. I am hoping this will help me focus and find the right organizational tools for the job.
I will be putting my big girl panties on shortly and heading back in there to deal with it. Even if I make a small amount of progress in there I will be ahead of where I started the journey. This is already one big reality check for me!
