I had already done a bit of clean up of the cutting table yesterday. We're actually dealing with my ridiculous collection of plastic bags... I moved a bunch to the downstairs, trashed some and put others neatly in the basket and changed where the basket lived on the shelves. Hum the E Quilter's Komen donation quilt on the design wall is making progress. I changed the corners on the two blocks on the top right. I added some white to lighten them up. I want to make at least one more block with a pale pink background and use some more of the light green that I used in the green and yellow star. 6 more to go on those.
Argh -- look at all the junk in the top right corner. What a waste of space. This was taken in process so it looks like I have open shelf space because we were working with the basket of plastic bags.
Here's the other side of the stash collection before the clean up. You can't really appreciate my cute little duck collection above, they're all mixed together. But, trust me, below they are spread out!
And, here's one after picture. I bet you didn't even realize I had boxes and baskets of fat quarters on the top of my shelving. I need to take pictures that are exactly what I had taken in the before pictures so you can really see what's been done.
My sewing machine is to the left of this L shaped space. Honestly, you could not see the blue counter here before. Didn't get a picture of it though. We didn't start in on the shelf so I'm booking her again in a few weeks! My "homework" is to cut up and put away a bunch of scraps. I keep 2.5", 2" and 1.5" strips in the plastic drawer unit on the left. The boxes and tins have half square triangles in them and different sizes of squares. The white basket on top has triangles that I can sew into half square triangles... I finally got to the point today that I threw away some of my scraps... I just couldn't take it any more! I did get most of the 80+ yards of fabric I bought at the guild auction folded and put away before today.
Tomorrow I need to work on getting some of my goals done for this week. I have a sneaky feeling I'm not going to be checking off a whole bunch of stuff this week!
Happy Quilting All!
