Organized...me?


My last few posts may have given many of you the impression that I am an organized quilter...for that I apologize. Take today as an example....

Yesterday I got a call from a member of my quilt guild with a question about this months meeting. Whoops, this is the first Monday of the month so out business meeting it is tonight. No problem - it only takes a few minutes to write out and agenda (do not mistake that for organization....)

While writing out the agenda I wondered what the program for this evening was...after a bit of digging through the guild tote bag I found the program list. Surprise - I am demonstrating fabric folders and binders. oh dear. You see I made a bunch of these last spring and I vaguely remember volunteering to demonstrate how I made them but since then I have given all of them away. Duhhhhhh!

So instead of working on organizing my sewing room as planned (or even on a quilt on that very organized list I posted) I am making a couple of binders for tonight...yikes! The pattern I use is from Terry Atkinson's blog at terryatkinson.typepad.com and is called an Airplane Art Binder. They are fun to make and make great quilt buddy gifts...
So I put some bean soup on the stove (it is soooo cold outside) and I am off to work on the binders. Organization will just have to wait another day....

OH boy...do I know that situation! Volunteering months in advance and then the night before trying to get things together for the demo!

Once I was teaching a class and the organizers never gave me an address!

LOL. No need to be organised as long as you're quick :-)

That looks like a photo of my binder! I need the help of notebooks like this one to help keep me organized - I forget a lot these days if I don't write things down!
