Lynn, I'm voting for the cleared space rather than a drug induced frenzy! LOL!!

I have one empty drawer already (can you believe it?) does that count? I'm thinking yes! Because I cleaned it out, moved my tables, and now can't open or close it! ha I guess I could use it for things I never use, but if I never use them, why have them? Hmmm. I think I have some quilting toys that would fit that category.

Seriously, I have gotten so much done in the last 2 weeks and don't know if that is b/c I had more useable work space.....well, duh........or that I'm back on a full dose of Cymbalta! tee hee :lol: :lol:

Lynn:lol: :roll: :) :?:

Awe Man, that's where I put all the clutter from the cutting and pressing area. You found it. :oops:

Love it Margo! Wish I was making more headway on the cleaning, but I am trying to complete some of the bits of projects that are clogging up the work surfaces. Has gotten to the point, that if I don't, it will all fall to the floor.
7 premie quilts finished (tops were done 1 1/2 yr ago). So making headway. Thank you for the challenges. It keeps me focused on finding those surfaces!

This one is another brilliant one for me: I don't keep any sewing or quilting stuff in drawers. It's all on shelves or in boxes. So....... tick...... job done. Hehehehe.....

Now, if you had asked me to clean and sort out a drawer in the kitchen..... that would have been a big job!

Taunting the teacher??? :shock:

Lorchen, you assignment, if you choose to accept it, it to clean off and de-clutter one entire shelf in your sewing space and one drawer in the kitchen! :lol:
Hmmm, guess you shouldn't give the boss a hard time. LOL

Already went through all the drawers ...cleaned the insides ... tossed the junk.... labeled them with P-TOUCH. Rearranged the placements of the plastic drawers. Able to condense them to get rid of one whole section which is a plus, in my small sewing area.

Already for me to come home from work and start sewing.

Margo, your Challenge 3 is exposing my dirty little secret. I have been keeping my sewing space really neat and organized since I went through it last spring and redid everything. I refolded all my fabric, moved things around so it all made better sense, got bins and boxes for storage, etc.
However, I have two drawers that I haven't been able to face - one contains beads and assorted surface embellishments I collected and haven't found quite the use for yet and the other has embroidery floss and all of my miscellaneous non-quilting notions (zippers, trim, etc.) most of which I will probably never use, but you never know. Having now looked in the mirror and admitted my shortcomings, I will have to act decisively. I guess that's why I have what seems like 1000 empty Altoids boxes. I've been saving them for, you guessed it, those two pesky drawers.
