垃圾堆挑战

要回到更熟悉,少伤心的话题,我的目标为2017年一个是我的布碎,里面有做多已经开始。但是,要保持良好的工作,我意识到我需要一个更好的系统比一个大仓满,因为我开始绗缝我做了一切的比特。我曾是这样的:

......但绝对充满与面料位过度流动。The only way I could fit everything in was to stuff everything in as hard as I could, and to find anything I had to upend the entire thing onto the floor and paw through it in the hope that I’d find the specific bit I was looking for. Obviously, not really a great solution. Enter these:

在我的购物游览最后一个星期六,我做了一定要到便宜货查理和两种尺寸拿起了十几个塑料筐给我废织物整理成色彩组。然而,直到昨天,我得到了一个机会,从世界上最粘的标签奖他们居然把东西在其中。尽管在一个点上,我会低估篮子所需数量/大小的担心,它的工作非常好:

正如我猜测他们可能会,蓝色,绿色和白色/奶油/中性远多于其他所有的颜色,所以我想我会在做一个蓝色的废料被子。其他色组,我选择了红色,橙色,黄色,棕色,粉红色,紫色,灰色和黑色,再加上对于不肯乖乖地落入任何特定的颜色组非常复杂的打印一个篮子里。I also threw away a fair bit of volume in terms of really ratty old wadding that was still attached to the trimmed edges of previous quilts and the really super-tiny scraps or ultra-skinny strings that I honestly couldn’t see myself doing anything with. I’m sure some fabrics ended up appearing in more than one colour grouping, but that’s ok. I’ll either re-sort if necessary or they’ll add a nice bit of variation.

要继续组织主题,我开始我的绣花线分类到我买了他们崭新的塑料储物箱。我说“开始”,因为它是一个相当缓慢的过程(伟大的当无视看电视!),但它真正需要做的,它的超级满意地看到牙线的纠结汤变得漂亮,整洁,线轴的可用行。

几年前,我买了刺绣牙线的整个负载在塑料袋中。他们不是在一缕缕,他们没有标记,心里很不舒服,我甚至不认为他们真的来分类的。也许他们从包遗留下来的?无论如何。当时,我整理他们,尽我所能,打结他们变成近似绞丝,并保持他们在一个破烂的纸箱,因为你在这里看到,与我后来买了其他缕缕一起,再加上WIP的友谊带缠结(记得那些?我是一个可爱的痴迷让他们当我是一个十几岁)。They weren’t really useful like that though because as soon as I went looking for anything, the whole lot ended up in even more of a bird’s nest, so like any normal person would, I put the lid on and ignored the whole lot for umpty years. Now, though, I find myself actually wanting to use them and to know what I’ve got, so I bought three large embroidery thread boxes, which handily came with card bobbins, and slowly, slowly, progress is being made:

The perle cottons (bottom left) and the Kreinik metallic spools (bottom right) may well find a different home, but I’ve already en-bobbin’ed all the metallic and rayon flosses I bought for using on quilts, plus a good amount of the mystery flosses (the pic of the cardboard box above is after my efforts last night – it was much fuller before I started!). I’ve also got about 10 intact (or nearly intact) skeins (from a variety of makers) that were in the same box, which I may put on labelled bobbins if I feel especially enthusiastic about it, plus I have all these DMC flosses that I picked up a while ago for almost nothing at Craft, the local thrift-type shop:

谁可以抗拒廉价的名牌工艺用品?不是我,清楚!我怀疑我的能力,以填补三级螺纹箱,但实际上我开始觉得毕竟我可以管理它!
