If my least favourite acronym is QID (Quilt as Desired), then I think my favourite must be PHD (Projects Half Done). Myra has really gotten me on the PHD kick this year. I went and got a bunch of storage bins from a couple of dollar stores and spent the weekend reorganizing my PHD. I did have a system before, but I usually grouped a couple of them together in a basket. Now, they each have their own separate bin.
It is so easy now for me to see what I am working on, and I can just grab a basket, do some sewing and then put it back. The bins are big enough that I can also put my backing fabric in there if I have it. I also colour-coded it too, so that blue bins are things that have 1st priority.
One of the good things about reorganizing is that I found a PHD that I had forgotten about. I have a co-worker who is having a baby girl in June, and now I have a baby girl's quilt that I can use for him.
It also gives me more room for this giveaway from Sarah that I won. Sorry, for the bad photo. The quilting book is great and the fabric would be amazing in my red/aqua quilt. The pink bag will come with me on my shopping trips and my daughter was so excited when I told her she could have the friendship bag. She already has her own thread catcher.
I would also like to congratulate some amazing quilters. Two of my friends have been nominated for awards in SewCalGal's Golden Quilters' Awards. Tammy has been nominated in the Best Longarm Quilter category and Julie has been nominated in the Best Designer category. They are both incrediblely talented women! I also want to mention that Andrea has been featured as a Moda Bake Shop designer, and Ariane has been a featured quilter on Amy's blog. I am so proud to know all of these women who inspire me every day!
Wishing you organization and inspiration,
