I've been attempting to get my studio in proper order so that I can actually see my fabric and work with it. I have a problem with being neat and tidy... I've inherited my Dad's filing system, which we've nicknamed the 'piling' system. Finished with something? Just plonk it on the table and walk away. But I've come to realise I need to break that terrible habit because it stunts my creativity and productivity. Can't have that, can we?!
So I got an extra shelf (I'd have gotten a larger shelf but my studio's only so big... boooo...) with a door so that I could put more fabric on the bottom without the cats thinking I put it there for them to play with.
And in the interest of full disclosure, this is the shelf on the right. I didn't tidy it so you can see my sickness in its glory. It's disgraceful but I'm hoping it'll be sorted soon. Right now I'm looking at it and I want to cry. I know my Mum is having heart palpitations right now. Sorry, Mum.
A lot of the fabrics are scraps from old projects that were too large to go in the scrap bin so I just dumped them there. See, piling system. Then of course there are a few quilt tops, finished and WIPs. And the bottom have bins with fabric that need to be folded and stacked properly. Gahhhh!
And after everything's neat and tidy, I give it two weeks before it'll look like a tornado blew through the studio. I'm incapable of keeping anything tidy. Ask anyone, they'll willingly tell you.
