How can I be expected to cook and clean?

I've been sewing all day!

Not really, but I have been in my sewing room all day.  I decided I HAD to get the piles organized.  And this is what I came up with!  I bought the bins at Lowe's on clearance!  I bought all they had, and still have 8 more ready to be filled.  In another corner I added shelves above my embroidery machine.  Thread went on the wall and I can see it at a glance.

The quilt on the left was made by my great grandmother when I was born.  It's very worn and tattered, it was used for all 4 kids, I'm the oldest.  She used old shirts, aprons, sheets and anything else she could find.  It's entirely hand sewn and tied.

January - the month to organize!

Last month I decided to make life easier.  My baking items were scattered here and there and in the pantry. 

Tupperware modular mates go on sale every January so I splurged on my kitchen.  I finally have my baking center organized and it fits in one section!  I bake bread, muffins, cookies, pie crusts, etc.  Everything is in reach!  Sometimes I bake bread with almonds, pecans or chickpea flour.  I use brown rice flour, tapioca flour and sweet potato flour too.  Mmmm, I'm hungry now...
