I've been doing that also.  

In one of the crafting FB groups, a member asked to see how others stored their metal dies.  In describing my "system", it occurred to me that I could make it more logical and convenient if I moved things around slightly. So, I did .. and yes, those items are now placed more reasonably.

But in so doing, I've naturally had to move OTHER items.  My big challenge now, is to *remember* where those other items are.  They are still, more or less, in my line of vision (I've discovered that if it's out of sight, it's out of mind and I don't use it), it's in a different place, which will take some time getting used to.

I've also re-organized other items, so they are not so messy.

I'm continuing to work on my needleturn applique.

I ignored household tasks and sewed yesterday!

I pulled out my Dear Jane project....sigh, I bet it has been ten years since I’ve worked on it!  Course it was always going to Be a forever type project, with all those blocks.

i appliqued two blocks while on vacation. The other evening while restless I cut out a bunch of fabric triangles - I want one of each fabric so this is a fiddly job.  Also went through my notebooks to see where I was at and what I still had to do.

yesterday I want to do some pp ing so I did!  I pieced two triangles and prepped the applique that needs to go on them.  Finished two blocks that needed finishing touches.  And then started 2 blocks, one triangle and one square and completed them!

I'm on a roll....

My, oh my.  Those are lovely blocks.  You do have a mountain of patience to even contemplate making those.

Well, truthfully, yesterday it was a serious case of how can I escape looking at the household jobs that need doing.....lol!

Those are *fantastic!*

Leave the project out, in its box, but so you can see it.  One block a day or one block prepped and slowly but surely you'll get them all done!

I can see the end of my Art Deco Garden Forever Project.... I've just finished all 28 border blocks (but still need to make *140* small accent circles).  I have only 4 12" blocks to prep and stitch.  One block at a time!

I'm jealous.  My new job is stupid.  They add 5 extra steps to every process.  So I had to work all weekend again.  Slowly but surely they will get whipped into shape.

Your blocks look fantastic!
