As Long As You're Going To Target

It's been even longer than I thought!  After months of high quilting productivity, I went on a break/slow down.  I really needed to give my sewing room a good clean and reorganization.   At the beginning of this year, I stated my goal is to whittle down my stash and finish some UFOs.  I've been doing that but during the clean up, I uncovered some fabric, kits, and PIGS (projects in grocery sacks - e.g. everything bought for a project, put in a bag, and never started).  So I tried to organize my stash to make it all more visible, more clear what I have on hand.  And that's where these marvelous baskets/bins from Target came in handy.

These bins came to my attention on Nicole's/SistersChoice blog a few months ago.  I messaged her to find out where they came from then set out for Target.  The size - roughly 5" by 13" long and 5" deep - is perfect for holding folded fat quarters, charm packs, and jelly rolls.  And they are a good size to fit on the shelves in my closet.  I started with one and now have six.  You can also buy them online here but they ship only as part of a bigger order.  So if you are going to Target anyway, check them out.  They come in other sizes too.

Once reorganized, I started some Christmas sewing and will be back soon to show you.

  1. I know exactly how you approached quilting during the first months of the pandemic. Me too. I was gungho, enthusiastic, productive, etc. Now not so much. Maybe I need to take your approach and do some reorganizing and see what rises to the top. Thanks for getting me to do a little rethinking.

  2. A painfully true quilting term... PIGS. I somehow missed those bins on Sister's Choice, so thanks for the heads up.

  3. Never know what you will find in paper bags and now you have "new" projects to work on...I really like those baskets and already found use for them. Happy Holidays Cathy and enjoy your clean room ☺️🎄


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
