Wipocalypse, April 2014

Bless me father for I have sinned. It has been 2 (?) weeks since I last stitched. Frankly I do not know where thee time has gone!


The only project I have worked on is my mystery project, and am now onto quite a bit of confetti stitching. Blech.


Since I don’t have a picture to show you, I thought I would at least partake in the question of the month: “How do you keep your stash organized?”.


In shoeboxes.


No, literally.


I have scads of fibers lumped into shopping bags and shoeboxes with no organization whatsoever. It’s actually a big goal of mine to get that all organized. Even though I don’t really have any place to put it once it is organized! (Container Store, I’m looking at you once you open!)


Take for example my projects. My wipe are fairly well organized. I use an Iris scrapbooking box for each project. I wait until Michael’s has a sale and then buy them usually for $5 a piece. LOVE THESE.


However I usually have them stashed in random places, usually under furniture like so:



I also have these boxes for pattern/fabric, etc… storage in my closet, but it is a PITA to get to, and there is no rhyme or reason to it except to say that one drawer is for fabric, one for patterns, and so on:



I have committed to improving this all… It has worn on my last nerve! BUT! It will be fantastic when it is done. I would throw myself at the mercy of the Organization Gods (OG) if Container Store would like to give me a large gift card to their store.πŸ˜‡

    I would really like to have a few of the largest cabinets for fibers:http://www.containerstore.com/shop/collections/hobby/drawers?productId=10008677&N=72540

    And then I would get these cabinets from IKEA for fabric, etc…http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40196241/
