Multitude

I have a multitude of projects, like any good quilter has.  I was looking for something in my quilt room closet and thought differently about this:
I have all these nice little white boxes of projects on the shelf.  The problem is they have become a "decoration" in my closet. (Read I haven't touch them since I placed them there when we moved into the house 13 years ago.)  I decided that I'm going to start taking one project box at a time and decide if I'm truly going to finish it or should I just put the fabric back in the stash.  If I'm going to finish it, I need to work on it NOW.  My goal is to clean those off so I can put fabric there. I want it to look like this.

The first box held this:




 Which were made into these pins.
I took them to Quilt Day for Quilts From The Bluffs and we will use them for extra name tags.  A silver sharpie works great for writing your name.  So I got a UFO done, 1st one for the year!!  WOO WHOO!  And I decluttered another item!

Good for you! I like organization, but you are right...sometimes you can forget what you have organized. It becomes part of the background.

What sweet pins! Have fun reorganizing your shelves....the problem I have with boxes is I forget what is in them. If I can see the projects I am more likely to work on them......maybe!
