    Why is it I spend so much more time cleaning and straightening out my sewing room than actually making something? It seems like I have to clean it up before I start any project. Sometimes I have to clean it and Im not even going to sew. It takes so much time to find places for all the "stuff" I drag in. Need some good ideas to fix this. :oops: :roll:

    Dont drag anymore stuff in and you will only have to clean and straighten from the work you do.

    i just spent an hour cleaning up from the other day. I'm not going to sew until friday night at the earliest.

    but it's all ready and waiting for me now - i cleaned it while the bf was making chili - the rooms are connected. otherwise i would have been in the living room by myself on the internet...

    =)

    This funny because I'm trying to straighten my sewing area pit but I think I'm making a bigger mess. I think it's time to offer out items I won't be using, maybe after Christmas.

    God has blessed me with the ability to look without seeing. Dust? what dust? stuff stacked every where. I don't see any stacked stuff. Dirty dishes, Where? Trust me I don't clean up between projects!:)

    I keep all quilting projects, materials, supplies etc. in clear labeled bins. These are all stacked on shelves in the basement. When I start a project I gather all the needed supplies put them in a bin and that is the only bin that is in my very small sewing room. I take a few minutes at the end of the day to clean up so I am ready to begin work the next day.
