Spring is in the air here in Massachusetts, where temperatures reached the 70s earlier this week. I love the smell of the warm air, seeing buds pop up from the ground, and watching the grass green up.

With spring comes Easter! I can't believe Easter 2014 is Sunday. A little over a year ago, on Easter weekend 2013, my husband and I looked at our new (to us) house for the very first time before buying it. It's a fixer upper, and since last summer we've done a lot of work on it.
To make a master bedroom, we knocked down a wall between two smaller bedrooms. While we gained a large master, we lost two closets in the process. Our current project has been building a new closet in our master. My husband and a contractor friend framed it out, and installed a closet system.
When we moved in, my husband and I took over the closets in our guest room and office for our clothes. Now that we've moved into our master closet, I'm reveling in this new-found closet space in other parts of the house.
The closet won't be empty for long, though. I plan to organize my fabric into hanging shoe organizers I'm no longer using. I'm also contemplating adding a bookshelf or other storage solution to the closet for my sewing notions.
I'm excited to put everything in its place, and unpack all the bags of supplies and in-progress projects I have. I can't tell you how happy a little spring cleaning and fabric and sewing tool organization will make me, because then I'll be free to start new projects.

Do you have any spring cleaning or sewing organization projects in the works? I can't wait to hear.
