Busy Organizing and Cooking

Today I took another day off from sewing, though it wasn't a completely craft-unrelated day. I cleaned my whole apartment, top to bottom, and did 4 loads of laundry (must remember to get some more Downy at the store soon). In that process, I realized that I have my sewing supplies all over the living room in various craft store bags. In an attempt to keep my sewing from taking over the house, I cleared out an old drawer tower from my closet (that wasn't getting a whole lot of use anyway) and brought it in as my crafting tower! All my little bits and bobs fit in the top drawer, and I put the buttons, lace and patterns in baggies to keep them together. Then I put the fabric in the remaining drawers (though two things of fleece didn't fit). It feels good to have everything cleaned and organized. I tend to clean with my emotions...when I am feeling a little stressed, things get messy and crazy, and then I have this cathartic cleaning spree and I feel put back together again, physically and emotionally. Well, it was just the right thing for me today. Tomorrow, I think I will be ready to tackle my new sewing project...a ruffly skirt...maybe with pockets. *eek* Oh, I also had to post the dinner I made tonight, because I very rarely cook, and I was proud of my domesticity. I made baked rotini, corn on the cob, steak and zuccini. Yum! In a few I'm going to make a healthy banana bread with strawberry yogurt and Splena. Crossing my fingers it turns out delicious!


  1. oh that is a great container for sewing!

  2. Thanks Melanie, I bought it a few years ago for closet storage, but it found a new purpose!
