We had a busy week and nothing really happened in the sewing room. We were gone for two days at the waterpark. Christmas was in there and New Year too. Plus I had committed to some cross-stitching starts.
More than that…I wasn’t in the mood to clean. I’ve gotten most everything cleaned from all the other rooms but the sewing room never got completely cleaned and then it became a dump at Christmas. It’s not terrible but I really need to spend about an hour in there…maybe two of real cleaning for me to really feel good about sitting down to sew.
This is the remnants of various leftover projects. My new camera is at the end of the table. I need to learn to use it and I’m terrible at that. I keep hoping Kalissa might have some free time and help me with it.
A wonderful blog reader sent me… two UFOs that I’ll likely finish and donate to charity…but they need to find a home in the meantime. I’m super excited to have them and can’t wait to dig in but I have other projects that have to come first.
CeeCee a former foster dog chewed one of the dog beds and I need to repair it…UGH. I hate repairing but I hate paying for new ones even more!!
I don’t have my grandson Anders’s quilt finished. That really needs to move up the ladder. I need to have some free time to simply sit and sew.
When I moved things around so the woodwork trim could be finished, I moved some things around. Now, these don’t have a nail on the wall so they can’t hang. I just need to remember to bring nails upstairs with me. I already have a hammer.
I did iron my leader and ender blocks and found I have 23. I have no idea what I’m going to make with them. ZERO. I just know I wanted a leader and ender and I had a bunch of blue and white 2″ strips.
I did sew the first part of the flying geese for these little star blocks I’ve been working on…but that’s the only real sewing I did this week.
I quickly sewed them one morning thinking I’d iron them in the afternoon when the grandkids were here sleeping but that never happened. So they are waiting for me too.
I want to get into my sewing room and finish cleaning so I feel better about sewing. I am someone who doesn’t go and sew if I know there is cleaning that should be done….so then I don’t go up to my sewing room because I don’t want to clean. Please tell me I’m not the only only one to do that!! How about we all set our minds to cleaning in our sewing area for two hours this week? You can do it with one big push or you can do it in 20-minute segments….whatever works for you. I know me, I’ll feel much better if I just DO IT!
