Do you leave notes to yourself on your sewing stuff? Just little things to help you remember. I do. Yesterday I opened the above skirt pattern thinking I might make it again. I always make my skirts a size 12, but out of the pattern fell my note that this skirt fit in the size 10. I have to admit I was a little pleased with myself for having the foresight to leave myself this note -- I'm organized but not usually this organized. It certainly saved me from some trouble.
I also occasionally leave myself post-it notes on my sewing machines. Because I normally have two machines set up, if I leave one different from my usual set up for more than a couple of days I have to remind myself. The scrap above I left sitting on a machine to tell me it had a fine thread and size 65/9 needle in it.
I find it kind of sad that I have to leave myself notes since I used to have such a sharp memory. But it's nice not to waste time trying to remember this stuff -- I just have to remember to leave the notes.
