On Sunday we had every intention of going to church. For us, church is a half hour away on curvy roads. We ended up having a bit of freezing rain and then heard the scanner calling out rescue personnel to aide in a couple accidents. That left us believing that staying home might be a better idea.
With unexpected time, I wasn’t quite sure what to do. Taxes needed to done…yuck. The house needed to be cleaned…yuck. My sewing room was calling and I answered the call. The only problem, when I got there-it needed to be cleaned. For me, house cleaning and sewing room cleaning doesn’t compare. I love cleaning my sewing room. On most days, I don’t clean though. I get busy on other things and cleaning falls to the side.
Today, I cleaned.
I worked and worked at it. I had projects that were finished but weren’t cleaned up.
I had lots of things that needed to be resorted. I had fabric that needed to be cut into strip sizes and be put away. The sad thing is that I was so busy doing the cleaning that I didn’t get much time to enjoy the clean room and play.
I did get a new charity quilt back pieced and loaded onto the frame.
I have my MANY projects organized and ready to work on. I think there are three different projects happening here.
Over the week I did manage to get a big stack of these blocks done.
I thought I had all I needed but now I’m not sure. I am going to re-evaluate the design I made and see if I do need more blocks or not. If I do, that will likely be this week’s project in between those three other projects.
I am SO-SO happy to have the quilting room clean. It looks so nice and I feel so blessed to have such an awesome space to work in.
Hubby spent his Sunday doing the same thing…cleaning and organizing his space. Next up for him, he’s working on the kitchen woodwork. That makes me happy too. More on that later.
Today we’re hooking up with Patchwork Times.

I start cleaning my studio and then get side tracked by the fabric and start sewing. Then I need to clean again. So now I set a timer for 15 minutes. Clean 15 and then sew 15. That works best for me!
Seeing your sewing room again made me smile. Recently, I has a guy come in to evaluate a possible remodel. Nothing major just close one wall and place the door to my sewing room where is should have been. He came, he saw, he gave an estimate and then said, “You sure have a lot of furniture in the small room.” I did smile when I explained everything in this room is necessary and will still be in this room after the remodel. I also told him I would move what would be in his way against the north wall ….not out of the room. Men just don’t understand the word “necessary” when it comes to a sewing/rug hooking room.
It feels so good to have things put away, know where they are, and come into a tidy room. I have had that but not in a really long time!LeeAnna
A shame most of the day was spent on tidying, but think how much you’ll be able to accomplish in even a short time in there now. Wishing you more sewing time the rest of the week!
Visiting from Design Wall Monday. Boy, cleaning my sewing room is on my to-do list for this week! Thanks for the encouraging post. Maybe I’ll try Charlene’s suggestion and set a timer to limit the distractions. Have a great week!
