Organization - I think
We started out by taking EVERYTHING out of the closet. Small spaces sure do hold a lot of stuff! Then we proceeded on to trying to sort things together. Gather all the fat quarters in the same place. Gather all the yardage in the same place. Gather all the backings together in the same place. Every time we thought we had it all, we found more.
There were lots of questions. What is this? Do you use this regularly? Do you like this? Is there anything you'd like to donate or throw away? Did you know you had this many kits? Did you even know you had this? It had to have been a very emotional thing for her to have all of her stuff exploded everywhere.
It took from 10:00am until 6:00pm and it was mostly complete. She said that it was so helpful to have an unbiased third party helping and keeping her on task. It was exhausting, but it was worth it. I only hope it is helpful to her. At the very least, I know that she should not HAVE to go shopping for quite some time, because she has more fabric than she even dreamed until she saw it all together.
