I have piles.  Lots of piles.  I have piles all over my house.  There are piles of books on the kitchen counter, piles of table linens in a plastic bin in the bedroom, piles of paper and who knows what all on the desk chair in the sewing room, piles of ironing on the futon,  more piles of books on the table in the sewing room, and a little bit of all of the above on the dining room table.  You see, I am doing one of those move this to there projects and you know how that goes.  You can't put one thing away until you move something out, which has to go where something else is, and that can't go until this gets moved, and the spot where that goes is full of whatever. 

When I'm finished this is what I hope to have accomplished:  Move the chest from the bedroom to the sewing room, the desk from the sewing room to the dining room, one bookcase from the sewing room and one from the dining room to the bedroom, the trunk from the living room to the bedroom, and the table from the sewing room to the living room!  And, paint the chest white before putting it in the sewing room with the other white cabinets, and paint the table cranberry red before putting it in the living room.  Just because.  

And no, I haven't finished the Extreme Trailer Makeover.  I always do two or three projects at once, and it takes forever to finish them!  Maybe next time I should try doing one thing at a time.  What a novel concept!

I have piles in my sewing room. Not because of any type of re-organization, just not enough room to put anything. I'm really trying to use up my stash of fabric, but still can't always resist a bargain.

Sounds like you are accomplishing alot.

I know what you mean, Shirley! I have the piles of fabric too, but that will always be there so I didn't even mention it! My whole reorganization thing is due to lack of room. There is no place to put anything here either. And hubby won't move so I just have to put up with it!

Are you going to blog soon?
