Sewing in Small Bits

You might have guessed by now that I am spending a lot less time crafting.  The new job often wears me out entirely, so I come home many nights and retreat to the heating pad. This would allow for quite a bit of knitting were it not for two string-crazed kittens who are determined to "help." 

But over the weekend I cut out fabric for a spring throw for us, and my new plan is to leave everything ready to go so when I have a few minutes, I can pop up to the sewing room and start sewing.  I got one stack sewn, ironed, and repinned last night, and I am ready if I have time tonight. It's a fairly simple pattern with 10 inch blocks (where have these been all my life?), so I'm hoping it goes rather quickly.

I agree - leaving a project ready to go in less than two minutes really helps. Question: I am not much of a sewer, but when I do sew, I hate that I have to hunt up the matching bobbin of thread that matches the spool. Have you ever seen a spool organizer with spindles long enough to hold the bobbin as well?

Excellent planning! It's going to be a pretty throw, too.
