Sorry guys. No real blog post for you. Last week I was busy machine binding a quilt and looked out over my sewing room. My only thought…it’s time.
The mess was too much. I was tired of looking for stuff and not being about to find it. It’s time to just take a day off and find my sewing room back.
So rather than take the day completely off and leave you with no blog post, I thought I would just snap some pictures and give you an honest look at how bad things have gotten.
Piles of stuff… everywhere…cabinets that won’t close because there is stuff in the way.
Stuff that I need to sort…
Stuff that needs dusting and vacuuming and moving. It’s shameful that I have such a nice sewing space and I’ve left it to get out of hand.
I bought the metal shelf about a year ago with the intention to just put it there until I found the right place for it. One year later, it hasn’t moved. Blah.
The floor is covered in threads and tiny clippings of fabric. When I walk out the door the stuff clings to my shoes and deposits on the carpet just outside the door.
Not only is it time…it’s way past time for me to find this room back. I know I’ll feel so much better just doing it. If I stop now, I can likely give it one good day and have things the way I want them. If I don’t stop and do it now, it’s going to take more than a day to do it and then I’ll just put it off and put it off. I don’t want that. It’s time. Plus I’m in a mood to pass things on and throw things out so when that mood hits, I really know it’s time.
So, no real blog post for you today…Just an honest look at the life of this quilter. Is it time for your sewing space too or are you one of those people who can maintain and keep things looking good? I long to be one of those but try as I might, I get busy, and keeping my sewing room tidy is always the first thing that goes.
