Sewing Room Cleaning and a Little Giveaway

No dollhouse work this week. Cleaning and sorting continues here and there in the sewing room. I put up these IKEA racks to help corral some of the little things.

The drawer of the desk above holds my leader/ender bits.

This little box had gotten to be a real mess. It is sorted again with just needles, pins, and thimbles.

I’ve now gone through my books. I can’t believe how many duplicates I had.

This is the discard pile.

These drawers under the long arm were a mess too.

I finally have all my quilt tops in one place.

This drawer holds backing fabrics. Yes, sometimes I use sheets.

When I posted my UFO list for the year, someone commented that it was perfectly legal to give a project away. So true! I’ve done this in the past and I’ve decided that I will do it again. Thanks for the reminder! Remember this stack of tumblers?

I would like to send them to anyone that wants them (US only due to postage costs). They are 4 inches finished height. You could use one to make a template to cut more. I cut these using my die cutter. There are over 250 here. Just leave me a comment saying you want them. If more than one person is interested, I’ll draw a name out of a hat.

ETA: Giveaway is now closed!

I have more cleaning and sorting to do, but this feels like a good start. I may have to hold an online garage sale to get rid of some of the stuff I’ve found! Have a great day!
