Cleaning…Not Sewing…UGH!

One would not know by looking at my dining room table that 10 people will be having Thanksgiving dinner here in just over 24 hours.

NoSewing-Cleaning

The cooking for me….no problem…the cleaning for me….UGH!

I have a sewing room so my dining room table probably shouldn’t look like this but it does.  Over the summer my daughter, Kelli, came home for sewing days and I found I liked sewing at the table.  It’s in the middle of the hub-bub of the house and I found I was missing out on a lot of that by being in the sewing room.  I can see the computer and be a part of what’s going on when I’m in the living room if I am sewing here.  I liked that a lot, so I asked everyone in the family if they minded if I sewed in the dining room.  No one did, so I’ve been camped out here.  It usually not quite this messy…I gave up keeping it tidy a week or so ago as I knew I’d have to completely clean it up for Thanksgiving.

There are SEVEN projects out on the table.    The bad news is that my sewing room doesn’t have a door so I can’t just throw all this in a laundry basket and shut the door.  (I would never to that!  “cough”) I actually have to clean it.  Take a guess at what I am doing today..Cleaning..Not sewing…UGH!

    I guess that’s one good part about having 3 little kids around – I have to put everything away each night to keep it out of little hands. Hopefully you can put on some lively music and find a way to enjoy the day anyway!

    Happy Thanksgiving Jo! Cleaning…yuck is right! Sometimes I’ll work at my table as well. I like all the natural light. It always looks crazy when I do that to. Enjoy!

    I sew on my kitchen table also. That is what my table looks like all the time, LOL!! Good luck cleaning it up for dinner tomorrow. Have a good Thanksgiving.

    Maybe you could hide it all in the laundry room. I also find the closet in the master bedroom to be a handy spot for the basket o’ stuff with no time to put it away — not that I would EVER do that.
