Well, this week has been a bit crazy. As foretold on the podcast last week, Bonnie Hunter mentioned our little ol’ show. Our YouTube views have more than doubled in a day, which is pretty neat. I’ve been busy behind the scenes with business and accounting type stuff (and have decided I’m already calling Allison soon, if she’s got room on her dance card) plus writing up a near-last minute 4th pattern that also needs to be ready at the end of July (special release at Tiny Stitches Christmas in July event!).
Since I can’t show pictures of that yet, I can show the amazing progress I made on clearing off my cutting table!
Please note the bottom half of the photo, which shows all those projects I cleared off the table got migrated over to the fabric storage shelves in some 1 Hour Baskets I made (minus the handles) to hold WIPs. With the launch of the pattern business, I’m finding I have way more WIPs than my usual operating style, so I’m getting used to this new normal.
I do find that clutter drives me bonkers, so having the clean cutting surface is really rescuing my sanity and allowing me to focus on what I need to actively be working on, not shoveling around a bunch of stuff on the cutting mats. And it’s easier to keep the cats off the projects if they are put neatly up.
The trick will be remembering what I’m actually supposed to be working on. JUST KIDDING! There’s totally a spreadsheet for that.
