"Oh, I LOVE books about sewing. One thing I try to do is intersperse my
huge projects with quick easy ones... that way I always have a sense of
satisfaction that comes from producing something fabulous in an hour or
two, as well as the glory of huge projects and the awesomeness of
getting them done. It just keeps me going. Also, I ALWAYS cut out my
next project as part of my cleanup from my last project. That way when
I start in on it I'm starting at the fun sew together part instead of
the annoying cut out part. I hope so very much that I win this book! It

"I love sewing books, they are probably almost as addicting as fabric!
My best sewing tips is to store fabric in clear bins by type and those
plastic school pencil boxes make great storage containers for needles,
sewing tools, threads, etc. "

This looks like a fantastic book to add to my sewing library! Would
love to do some "grown up" projects! Lots of ziploc bags helps to keep
patterns, ribbon scraps, button, etc sorted and together.

I have a very small house with limited storage. I have shelving in my
family room for my fabric with bamboo shades hung from the ceiling to
hide the fabric and also to keep it clean and protect it from the
sunlight coming through my windows. It's stacked according to color
and season. I bought a box of 9x12 clasp envelopes at Costco for my
patterns. I glue the front of the pattern on the front of the
envelope and the back is glued on the back...it's so much easier to put
the pattern pieces into a big envelope than trying to stuff back into
the original one. They're stored in a four drawer filing cabinet.
