I love the X`s in the background of the block and couldn't resist cutting my prints to maximize the directional feel of them!

LONG TIME GONE SAL - keeping yourself organized!

One week friends!! We only have one week to go and then it's on like Donkey Kong!!
Are you all ready? There still time to join Angie, Marti and I on this most exciting (slightly crazy) adventure!

Today I'm just popping in really quick to share some tips and tricks I use for staying on track and keeping organized while sewing. Nothing worse than getting halfway through a project and realizing you've lost the fabrics you've been using, or used them in another project or even put the blocks you've already made in a "safe location" so they wouldn't get lost. I have LOTS of "safe places" in my house.
