            Make borders using the 100 blocks made in Step 7. - zero

Declutter item: More silk flowers lost in the basement, a book and some Christmas decorations.  (I have them all boxed up and I pulled out a box and went through it for old, outdated items.)

I've been spending some time cleaning and loving the organizing ideas that I'm collecting on Pinterest.  I'm really thinking a quilting room overhaul is in store for this summer.  I've been thinking about it and planning it in my head.  Will start writing down the plan soon.  For me, Pinterest has been mini vision boards.  Love it!
