Since my sewing area has been shrinking I decided to pull out everything and try to organize it. Does anyone ever have an organized sewing room? I have sewing/knitting/dyeing stuff, then I have office stuff for FFC ( the projects I worked overseas with), left over real estate stuff including some boxes with miscellaneous supplies, and the files that I need to keep for 2 more years. My room is about 20 by 10. I have counters and work space around but they are filled! I did decide to use my scanner to get rid of the paper clutter which is helping with fresh things but I do need to go back and scan old files to get rid of the hard copies. Unfortunately this ranks about the same as getting a tooth pulled, after all why do this when you can sew? :) I also have several boxes of old photos (the one craft I am not into is scrap-booking). A friend of mine who is not a collector and has a serene minimalist home suggested that I get rid of it all and when I sew just buy enough for the project and when it is done toss any left over fabric. Are you kidding me? Those are valuable scraps. Anyhow during my sewing I came across this old letter from Erma Bombeck to me. How cool is that?

Just kidding! We already have the baby in mind for the gifts, he will be born in a few weeks which will make the outfit just the right size when our weather is cool enough to wear it. The pants were a challenge since I had no pattern to work from, just measurements from a 6 month old and some guidelines from the internet.
