This picture happened yesterday.
And I am in a hurry right now to post this because I have a doc check up that I forgot about ---until my alarm on my calendar on the phone went off 5 minutes ago!
I called them – I was bad, I ate a tangerine…I was supposed to be fasting! They said come anyway --- ((Dang, I hoped I could reschedule!))
SO –my 5 minutes of power purging happened yesterday on the top of my cutting table.
I quilted two quilts before leaving for Indiana, and I had remnants from backing fabric to slice down and put away.
Cutting the leftovers into strips makes them INSTANTLY usable. Saving them in a box in odd sizes and piece and parts for another day --- does that other day ever come around?
It took just a few minutes to cut these backing left overs into 1.5” 2” and 2.5” strips and put them away, giving me a clean cutting table!
Meanwhile on the other side of the studio!
This was more than a 5 minute power purge, but the hubster assembled the IKEA cutting island for me while I cleaned and vacuumed that side of the studio. It is PERFECT in every way!
The drawers hold my smaller dies!
Two drawers are still empty – I’m sure they won’t be for long.
The shelves hold my trays and plastic cutting sheets, etc. The large dies I am still leaving standing on end in a place I have for them. They are heavy and easier to flip through if they are upright instead of lying down on a shelf where, as we all know how it goes, the one I want the most would always be the one on the BOTTOM, right??
I’m off to the doc – then to do some shopping for all the groceries and stuff we need for the week at Quilt Villa.
I’m heading to the airport this evening at 6pm to pick up my dad and whisk him right away to the mountains ----
If I miss an evening post, you’ll know why!
Have a great Monday, everyone!
