    Louise, I know that the beginning of a project like this can be overwhelming. You were smart to start with the boxes. Boxes are big objects and once you remove all of them you will be able to see a big improvement. Next start with another task like putting away all your cutting tools or fabric, etc. Do only one task at a time. Put on some fun music or watch a movie while you do the work. You will be surprised how quickly it will turn into a fun project. I can't wait to see photos!

    Hmmmmm......I have two seam rippers and can't find either one of them....I have 5 different projects going on at the same time. Come to think of it, I can't find the top to the cutting table either.
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    I must have a cluttered mind!!! I straighten up before starting a project and think of other projects I'd like to do and start pulling fabric and patterns out and there you have it a mess again!!

    if a "cluttered workspace" reflects a "cluttered mind", what does an "empty workspace" reflect?

    I use boxes and what I find is to use same size mostly so they will stack well. Also label them with wide painters green tape and felt pen, easy to see what's in them.

    My sewing room is a spare bedroom with all of my sewing stuff and a longarm. We are getting new carpet for all of the bedrooms including this one.Everything has to come out. Didn't realize how much stuff we have. It will be about two weeks until it is installed. Hope to go though everything in this room and make desired changes while it is all out. Dred taking down my longarm, but it will all be worth it in the end!
