    When I am frustrated, I "organize". On one of the other posts I outlined my problems piecing a lap quilt last night. When I went to bed last night I was ready to throw the whole quilt into the garbage. All the blocks are made I just cant same to get them in the right order to make the color pattern turn out right!

    Must have really torqued myself off because I spent from 12 to 6 today organizing my sewing room. The room is only 14 by 10!!! And I havent made it to half the walk in closet. I moved all the furniture--three times and now it is back in almost exactly the same configuration I started with. Rearrranged all the knick-knacks. Replaced the batteries in the remotes. Organized the drawers. Replaced the ironing board cover.

    Taking a break because Im thirsty and then I have to tackle the other half of that closet.

    All the while, that stupid quilt that made me mad is hanging on the design wall. Thing is that it is the EASIEST quilt I have done all year and I just could not get it right. Maybe I will try it again tomorrow.

    Wow, your sewing room is going to be squeaky clean. Hope you share pictures of it with us!

    As for the quilt that's giving you trouble, stepping away from it is the best thing you can do, and you already know that. When you tackle it tomorrow, it will be a piece of cake!

    I think that many of us use cleaning and organizing when we get frustrated. I can't wait to see the room and the quilt. good luck tomorrow.

    I know what you are going through. I'm not talking about your reorganizing/cleaning, but the frustration regarding your quilt block layout. Whenever I get stumped when I'm "creating", I just set the whole thing aside until such time as I get a brain wave. The solution always comes to me eventually, but I can't seem to hurry it along ... it takes its own sweet time to pop into my brain.

    Wow, maybe that is what you needed to do to take a bread and get things organized.

    did you find things that you didn't remember that you had?

    have fun getting your room organized so you can sew, sew, sew
