RIF: Reading is Fundamental


Not much time to post today. But I did get a lot accomplished this weekend (more on that this week). I even made it to the library. I was asking around for technique books to help with the Dear Jane quilt when it finally hit me that I have a library card. And the library has books with information in them.

I also took the plunge and removed the binding from my Dear Jane book. I realized that the book was very cumbersome for template tracing, referencing blocks, etc. as a paperback so it now lives in a binder. And I'm even saving my finished blocks in the plastic sleeves that hold the pages. I am so organized now!


And I went pro on flickr. I paid the yearly fee and now have many more options for organizing my photos. (There's that 'organizing' word again.) My collection of photos has grown a bit and finding what I want was getting cumbersome. Now I'm all about collections and sub sets -- flickr-pro talk.

See, I told you I did a lot this weekend! Project pictures to come but here is a preview:

Flickr pro is so great. I can't rave enough about how much I love my flickr.

The library...why didn't I think of that! This quilt is quite a project. Sounds like organization is going to be your middle name! Saw your block on flickr. I'm impressed!

Jackie said...

I am all for organization! Congrats! don't you feel like you can definitely accomplish more when you are organized? Your Dear Jane looks great!

Elizabeth said...

Oh, man! Collections and subsets! I've rearranged all my subsets, like, ten times now. :)

Your notebook idea sounds like a good one. Can't wait to see all your blocks together!

Elizabeth,

Thanks for the comment!

The binder idea was from Gayla...not me. Visit her blog at:
