Welcome to the board!
My sewing room currently looks like a bomb hit it
I need to clean it up but I keep starting new projects. I think I'm hopeless haha

Love this, and the earlier suggestions of heaters, storage solutions and 1/2 hour spurts of work. I will look at freshening the place up and making it comfy so that I love it in there and dont want to leave.

Thanks everyone for the welcome I'm glad to be here

Welcome to the QB from Michigan USA! It sounds like you have a good space to make into the best sewing space. Motivation is one thing that sometimes needs a bit of a nudge. The holiday break may just be the nudge you need. Here's to getting unpacked! I know you can accomplish this. I for one want to hear about your progress. I have been in a place were I couldn't even look at a sewing machine much less sew. It sometimes just takes time the Wham! Nothing can stop you. the effort it takes to talk on the phone goes into making a most beautiful quilted creation. I hope you can 'crack the whip' so to speak and begin a bit of organization without fear that that is isolated only to you. I don't believe I will ever see my sewing room all nice an neat.
Again welcome to the QB I do hope to see a lot of you here.

Welcome to the board from Arizona. Good luck with your setting up your happy place. I remember when I worked full time, I could not wait to be able to sew sew sew sew when ever I wanted. Now I do that all the time.

Just a quick little update... on sunday I spent most of my day sorting things out, unpacking, fixing things and cleaning the main house but I also went in and pulled fabric for a project I'm going to be working on in the new year and I started the cutting process. I have never cut all of the pieces all before sewing, I usually do it all as I go but am following a pattern this time so trying to do what I'm told. I'm very slow, I have cut 3 out of 24 fat quarters but am enjoying the process. I might get another few done later today

Hi NikkiNikkiNikki - from one Nikki to another! Yes, I am a Nikki also! I live in the US in the state of Missouri - smack dab in the middle of the country. I was the only Nikki that I ever heard about for years - and now there are a bunch of us. And a quilter too! I have two daughters, the youngest is a quilter and the oldest is just now starting to sniff around - following Bonnie Hunter - the Scrap Quilter - the only thing is, she doesn't have any scraps - but I guess her Mom (me) might be able to help her LOL

Default welcome from the sunset coast of Michigan

Welcome! Extra sweaters or a heater can make you have more energy in a cold space, and organizing just one thing a day is enough to make real progress. Hugs!
