Just a little boo-boo

I cut out a 501 Project block the other day that I'd already made in 2011.  Of course, I didn't realize it until I sewed it today.  But that's okay, I needed another block in this color scheme.

Diamond Panes

I think I mentioned that I was looking for a hand project and had intended to knit some socks but didn't have the right size double-pointed needles.  I have nine drawers of sewing, crafting, knitting, spinning, and embroidery supplies.  Unfortunately, it's a c**p shoot to find what is where.  Today, I took all the drawers out and put the correct items in a labeled drawer.  I also wrote down all the size knitting needles and crochet hooks that I have.  I found quite a few duplicates.  And...I found the size I needed for the socks. I'm so glad I didn't just run out and get another set.  Now if I can just keep the drawers organized.  It's so easy to shove the items into whichever drawer they fit into.  I organized my fabric sometime last year and that has stayed pretty organized.  I do need to get another couple of bins/drawers for my papermaking and scrapbooking supplies.

There's a rumor going around that Friend Connect that tracks followers is going away soon.  I've put a couple of other choices - Follow by email and Subscribe to Posts/Comments in the side column.  I have no idea what impact this Friend Connect thing is going to have.  I guess we'll find out.

Hope you had a good day.

How do you keep up with which blocks you've made for the 50 Quilt project?

Your block turned out great, even if it is the second one. :o) I hope the GFC thing doesn't disappear. I guess we'll have to wait to find out what happens.
