Since I can't work in confusion so my house and workroom are usually neat unless I am in the very middle of a project . This way I keep track of each step and do a better job. But my family is grown, all grandchildren too and I'm a widow living alone with a fairly tidy cat.
I had a poster in my sewing room a long time saying, A messy room shows a creative mind. I don't think that's always so for I do a lot of creative things: I write family memoirs, paint, garden and volunteer as well as quilt.
