I would like to be organized with my fabric and try very hard. You can see some of my storage "system" here, but it pales in comparison to Teresa's organization for sure!!
Admittedly I often look around my sewing room and shake my head in disgust. But the fact is that when I am working on a quilt (which I always am) I am a Pigpen.

I make a really big mess. Yep...there, I said it! They say that the first step to making a change is admitting the problem. So here's the problem....
I spread all the possible fabrics for the quilt out on tables, and pin some to the design wall. I really should have taken a photo of my work space when I was working on my peace quilt, but it was just too embarrassing, even to myself! Do you know how many scraps of fabric I had to see to pick out just the right ones for my pinwheels?!? I just have to immerse myself in the colours and fabrics and make the necessary decisions about what "works" together.This is the fun part of creativity, but it is also what makes such a big mess.
So, like PigPen, I am learning to be accepting of my creative messiness. And every once in a while it gets unbearable, and I just have to clean off the cutting table at least!
Today is one of those days!
