The last clouds...

Last clouds
Last week I cut the last squares for my cloud quilt! I love this fabric design. Looove! Yesterday I spent a few hours laying out the quilt on our bed and I started sewing together the quilt top. Yay! Hopefully, I will be able to dig out a few free hours so I can finish it this week. :-)

Pretty scraps
I kinda struggle with keeping things tidy when I sew/cut fabric. Loose threads and bits of fabric pile up in random piles. But recently I've been forcing myself to find some systems to try and keep the chaos at bay. For example, I have this bin right next to me, so all bits of thread go straight in there when I cut them. The same goes for scraps of fabric that are too small to be used for anything. Scraps that are large enough to be used go in a small wooden bowl to be sorted through at some point.

And I've also got a lot better at tidying my desk after I finish a project. When the project is finished, everything related to it goes back to their places. I know it's not rocket science, but when you're a bit of a messy person it feels like a bit of a breakthrough to be able to keep things tidy. ;-)

Do you keep your desk/workspace tidy? Do you struggle like me?


PS. In case anyone is wondering: that cute metal butterfly bin is from BHS. :-)
