Ahhh. . . something about order makes me happy

There is something to be said about having things in order.  For the last couple of months I feel like everything in my life has been in a constant state of flux (is that a word?)  The last couple of days I have been feeling an overwhelming desire to organize my fabrics.  I guess it started when I saw this post that I linked to from someone's blog.  It had a nice tutorial on how to make them all look uniform.  It was wonderful and I pulled out my plastic tote full of half folded fabrics and mess and started folding (while I was at it I inventoried how much I had of each - I know I'm crazy.)  But now I love how it looks.  Of course I have them separated by color and type.  It seemed to make me feel a little bit less crazy and a little bit more organized. 
As you can see from the next picture, I like to have things labeled.  I think it was when we moved that my brother-in-law thought it was awful funny that I had one of my totes labeled "Glue and Hot Glue Gun."  What's so funny about that - I know exactly where it is and what it is.

Here they are on the shelf - I'm not sure if they will stay there because of the dust factor but I like that they are all lined up and look so pretty.  The second row over (the pink, green, brown and red) are a new project I hope to get underway after I finish a couple of loose ends (otherwise know as unfinished projects.)

I've also been organizing my UnFinished Projects (UFO) and want to start the month of March off with a  UFO Completion Project.  DO YOU WANT TO JOIN ME??  I might post my list of UFO's (if I'm not to embarrassed) and then see how many I get done before the end of the month.  It has been one of my unwritten goals for the year to complete 2 UFO's before I get to start a new project.  But I'm thinking I need to up the ante and do 10???  for March. We will see what happens. . .


  1. now I have to add this to my list of UFO's....folding and organizing all my fabric...a year ago, I didn't even have any should see it now...WAY too much. But I'll get to it....eventually. Looks awesome!!!!
