Forced Productivity: Organize Your Sewing Stuff Day

I have always been blessed to have my own car to come and go as I please. As a mom of six children, it is a wonderful thing. I really feel for those moms who have been in a "one car" family. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always been on the go. Even when I had three babies in diapers, we were still on the go a lot. Well, today, we have a car in the shop and my son had to be at work at 8:00 this morning. I have had a very busy week and I was looking forward to having a day that I dont have to be anywhere at a certain time. We do have church and choir practice this evening, but my day is appointment free. I let my son take my car for the day, so I guess you could say I am "stuck" at home. In the past, this would have stressed me out. Even if I didnt have anywhere I had to go, I would be panicked in case I decided I wanted to go somewhere. Well...I am taking full advatantage today. I have three quilts that need to be finished as soon as possible. I also need to get my quilting and sewing supplies organized. I have been working so hard, teaching my sewing classes, that my notions and supplies are spread out into three rooms and many class totes. So, even though, I should be quilting, I am going to take today and sort my supplies and get them organized so I can find them quickly. There is nothing worse than knowing you have a certain tool and not being able to find it. I have purchased so many duplicates, simply because I cant find something. Well...the chaos has got to end. So, I am proclaiming today......Organize Your Sewing Stuff Day. I know I will feel better and be able to work more effeciently.
