Getting Organized and Piecing Blocks

My office, crafting room, and my library/fabric room are all upstairs. I got so tired of going back and forth up and down our steep and narrow farmhouse steps that I decided to recoup and try to get my working stash downstairs. I found these containers at Lowe’s for 5 for $5.00, and I bought a mess of them. It has certainly simplified my life though I am not getting the exercise I was getting hoofing it up and down the steps all day long.  





I finished 2 of my Vintage Quilt Block-Along Blocks and started a new one, completed one more of the blocks for my 100 Modern Quilt Blocks Project,and experimented with some little TicTacToe 5inch blocks. The foundation piecing is getting a little bit easier for me, but I still have a long ways to go before I feel comfortable with the technique. The one thing I have not done is to get back to work on the pink bed quilt I started in November. Maybe that will be my goal for next week.

  2. Wow, you are very organized! I try to clean up my sewing place every week, but the day after cleaning it's a mess again :)
    Love your blocks!

  3. Gotta love the 5 for $5 boxes for getting your stash organized. Nice-looking blocks! That second to the last red/white one is a particularly happy block.

  5. Way to go on getting organized. I so would love to have a big room for all my stuff. I have it down in the basement and it is not a pretty basement. Plus, I hate not being able to see outside.

  6. Your blocks are very pretty, I especially like the purple tic-tac-toe one. Organization is one of my pet peeves as well! I have taken over the dining room and have some storage in a room above the garage. I tend to forget what's up there!
