    My grandmother used to say, "You never know what you got until you move." The same applies to cleaning, reorganizing, straightening up the quilting/sewing space, lol. I have found notions I didn't know I had. Or when I am auditioning fabrics from my stash for a project, I also come across fantastic fabrics that I don't remember buying

    I have a place for everything and when I'm working on a project, nothing is in it's place. It drives me crazy but it's the nature of being creative. I loved the massive spread of tools that signaled High Creativity Happening!!

    Glad to see I'm not alone, the last part where the sewing room looks like a tornado went through, although I'm trying harder to keep it organized.

    My dear daddy, who passed away 17 years ago, once bought me a button for my coat that read, "I'm not messy, I'm creative!" Unfortunately, I lost that button.

    With me, it's scissors that tend to wander around the house.

    I am naturally a night owl . Would go to bed at 2 am if possible but then I have to work in the morning.

    I dont know why but I cant seem to keep my hands on my seam rippers, rulers, and feet while I am sewing. Glad to know I am not the only one.

    Glad you got it done, but I thought stuff all over the place was normal. I have an embroidery design that says, 'A creative mess is better than tidy idleness.' That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

    I was sewing the Fat Quarter bag and before I was done I couldn't find the many seam rippers I had pulled from my basket to use. I had to go to my stash basket and open a brand new seam ripper, I was too frustrated to look for one of the others. My sewing room is still in shambles after that Sunday night project. The bag turned out great.
    Got fabric?
