|Sometimes at work I will be able to find some time to go out at lunch. I have begun to put a picture of my pattern front and back on one sheet that are in my to sew pile in my Word program and save it as Projects to Sew. This way when I find the time to shop but not the time to dig through my patterns, I just open up my folder and wallah- there they are. I don't know about others but I have a rather large stash that isn't very organized and it beats digging through them or even going to the website -plus, I always seem to get distracted. :) when I'm digging or perusing.
Some of us have our laptops with us most of the time, too. Again easily accessible. Sure beats guessing what I need for a pattern- I can pick the stuff up on my way home on Friday and sew over the weekend. Some of us live miles from the nearest fabric store so I think this would be helpful to many of us-especially the more forgetful of the bunch (like me).
P.S.- Sometimes I just get 'in the mood' to sew a specific thing be it home dec, kids clothing, garment, etc. and I never know from day to day what I'm going to feel like.
