    I'm posting a NOW picture of my sewing room in the hopes that it'll shame me into getting in there and cleaning it up so I can get going on some birthday blocks and a wallhanging I need to get to right now. As you can see, I have fabric, newly purchased and stuff I took from my stash to find what I need for some not-quite-yet WIPs. Need to wash and put away fabric, patterns, general stuff before I can even think of sewing. It's an embarassment. I'm hoping that posting this photo will act like a public stockade. Look for an "AFTER" photo from me in a few days. I hope.

    What a woman!! Such courage, such passion, let me know how this works for you!! My husband is a neat freak, I'm not.....my sewing room looks a whole lot like yours in fact. He thinks that I am the only person on earth with a unkempt sewing area! 8-)

    But Ginny, look at it this way: you LOVE to sew, right? You LOVE to quilt. You LOVE fabric. We take care of things we love. And so, you will be attentive and take care of your things today and give them a proper spot of honor, whether it's fabric stacked nicely on a shelf, or tools all happy and together. And if there's something staring at you that you DON'T love...put it in a box to go to another home.

    No shaming here...just support!

    That's not so bad. Do you want to spend your time organizing or sewing? Make some room and sew, organize later!

    I have to comment on your Ohio Star block on the board. I made a Christmas tree skirt from them in exactly the same colour combination. :)
