Yes, I have way too many quilting magazines. I can’t help myself! I subscribe to 3 and occasionally pick up one at the local quilt shop. The problem is, they were stacked too high on the table in front of my TV in Wandaland. I could hear it, but couldn’t watch it. In fact, I had to stand up and hold the remote control above my head so it could connect with the DVD player. Now how sad and goofy is that?! So, Sunday evening I sat down with the stack of magazines in front of me and went through each one. I tore out patterns that I liked, tips I wanted to glue into my little notebook, articles I wanted to read, and ads I wanted to actually use. The quilt patterns I put into page protectors and put into 3-ring binders. (That’s how I found the pattern for the Nationals Quilt – flipping through old patterns.) This process took over 4 hours! Now, I have the patterns organized and I can actually watch the TV now. Ah, the simple joys of life, an organized sewing room. (well mostly organized anyway)
Have a great day!
