My Version Of Organized

I am not a very organized person. I am one of those people that can stack things on a desk three feet high and know exactly where everything is. But as soon I as "organize" it everything is lost. If I work at and think on something long enough I can usually figure out how to organize it. This would take a really long time to get my sewing room in order. Trust me, I have been working on my kitchen for months now.

I want to get into my sewing room so that I can sew more when I am in TX. In order to do this I need to get things put away and get it organized. What I have decided to do now for starters is to group things and then to put it away, not necessarily neatly but away.

Part of this process was to come up with a plan of what I wanted to sew or crochet or whatever this year. I have added tabbed pages to my blog listing UFOs, PIGS and WHIMMS that I want to work on this year. These things will be left out, readily at hand. The rest is going to be grouped and tucked away the best that I know how. When I am putting away I will also be culling and coming up with my list for 2012.

Hey, it's a start!

Organizing your sewing room so things are put away and you can still find stuff... that's a toughie!

I did that about a year ago... and am still tweaking the organization, which I think is always a work-in-process.

Good luck to you!

Funny. You have a needle roll on your to-do list also. I have one for straight knitting needles and one for circulars. Great minds.
