Organization

Ta da!!! Here are, practically, all my embroidery work in progress projects, ready for me to continue working on them!


Ikea utility carts have been around for quite awhile now. I've always wanted one, but not in the pretty aqua/blue most crafters have. Not because I don't like aqua, I actually love aqua... however it doesn't match with my needlework desk (yes, I'm the matchy matchy type of girl).
However, these carts went on sale recently... and I thought, well perhaps I could get the girls one each in order to keep certain things tidy and easy to move around, so went to the Ikea website and to my delight there were available in beige and gray as well... hooray! Ended up getting 4... LOL. One in grey for my husband's office, and 3 in beige for the girls and I. They were pretty easy to put together, did the four of them myself!


Now I have all my WIP's on one place, easy for me to see and noticed what needs to be completed. Plus can be rolled away out of sight, for when my schedule becomes too tight to have stitchy distractions. A good feeling of accomplishment to have organized all these in this handy cart. Perhaps now, finally, I'll be able to finish most of what I start! How are you keeping motivated to finish your WIP's? Do you need to keep them in sight, or do you work on them methodically?
Until next time!

  2. Nice idea! I used to keep mine all in a bag, but somehow or other, it got damaged. Anyway, I'd pretty much emptied it out, so it was no longer relevant.

    My 2 WIPs are here in the living room, standing up against the little table I keep my stitching stuff and other bits and pieces on for regular use. Under normal circs, I work on them fairly methodically, but I've hardly touched a stitch for about 4 months now. =(

    Anyway, the bottom line for me is that I hate having too many WIPs. For many years I've generally kept it to 2 larger pieces at any one time and then done the odd smaller piece alongside them as and when need dictated. I can't stand the thought of 6, 7, 8, 20+ WIPs/UFOs hanging around, so I finish something before starting something else. On the one occasion this didn't happen and I found myself with 4 WIPs going at once, I felt very stressed by it!=(

  5. Love your new organizational cart! I try to keep all of my WIPs in one place (either in a basket or in a drawer). Great job organizing your cart!
