"Little boxes, on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky tacky, little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same." Ok - back in July of 2010 when I instated my Five Box Policy, I was a little obsessed with Weeds on Netflix. Here's how the whole thing started!
My sewing studio has been literally littered with different projects in various stages of completion for months now-- which explains why fabric keeps coming in ... but not being busted!!
If you've been following my blog or know me from our sewing groups, you know that I have quilting ADD and that I adore starting new projects. I'm not sure why, but when a new idea pops in my head, I have the tendency to drop whatever I'm working on to start the new stuff. Lately, instead of packing away the works in progress (i.e., labeling the cuts and storing them in plastic bags, making a note of the inspiration or the pattern I'm following, and where I stopped or was at least planning on going ... etc), I've just left everything out on my table and started the new project right on top.
However, now that I've been done this several times, the resulting "mountain" is starting to become a bit of a problem. I can only imagine if a volcano erupted tomorrow and buried my house in ash, what the poor archaeologist who discovered the remains of my studio in 1,000 years would say about the layers upon layers of fabric he would unearth. Luckily for me, there are no active volcanoes in Sacramento. :)
