Project Piles

OK, for me, organization requires a list! 
I've had enough of piles and unfinished projects! 
So, I've spent this day dividing my sewing room mountains into 3 piles. 
2 gallon bag per project
Then, I placed each project in a giant sized plastic bag, and labeled it. I gathered and included everything needed for each specific project. 
Finally, I placed each bag in a clear plastic crate. 
The pile mountain is gone and the three categories look do-able!
My sewing area looks neat, at least for a day!  
Now, with enthusiasm, I open my first large project bag, dreaming of making a new pile labeled "COMPLETED".

This process has really helped me stay on track, know what to buy, and seeing my accomplished projects have encouraged me so much during this season of elderly care giving with my Dad.
