Sewing Room Progress! Plus fabric drawers

I worked in my sewing room tonight for almost two hours, unpacking several bags and boxes of what turned out to be a lot of garbage.  I found a picture of me from senior year of college looking softer around the edges than I realized at the time — 15+ extra pounds will do that to a woman who is 5’2″.  I also found quite a few stamped addressed envelopes with nothing in them.  Apparently I planned to send a lot of letters whatever year stamps were 37 cents and didn’t follow through with all of them.

I put away the goodies I won in a Confessions of a Sewing Dork giveaway awhile ago.  As I picked up the fabric, I experienced a twinge of anxiety as to where I would file it.  With the yellows because of its chartreuse background, or with the purple because of the print?  When I opened my drawer I saw the fabric and said out loud, “Oh!” in delight.  For some reason, the yellows and purples were right next to each other in the drawer!  I didn’t have to choose!  It was so perfect!  Perfect for today, anyway, I’ll do a rainbow-order update of the drawers before the end of the 28 Day Organizing Challenge.

In other news, I found a lone unwrapped Swedish Fish in a sack of old papers and cds, sitting in the collection of lint and  occasional dog hair at the bottom of the bag.  It had been there for at least 18 months.  After much consideration, I did not eat it.  Barely.
