    This may take FOREVER!! I started a week ago. I found lots of magazines and piled them up to take to the guild meeting and give away. Next day I thought I better go through them first. So that took a day and a half.

    OK - back to work. Found a big bunch of charm squares. (I have NO MEMORY of buying them.) Stopped cleaning and started sewing Disappearing 9 Patches. Wow, what fun! So, today after church, I will sew some more. Then I should put them together in a small baby quilt to take to guild tomorrow night for Show & Tell.

    At this rate I probably will take a year to finish the organization!

    My daughter, who is not a quilter, or in the least crafty, said "Aren't you finished yet"?

    Non-quilters just don't understand. Sounds like you got a lot done to me!

    Kat, are you sure you aren't my long lost twin? Quilter twin? Separated at the LQS?

    I have a friend who refuses to show her quilting room to anyone who isn't a quilter. They just can't understand. When her sister came to visit she showed her the house for the first time but wouldn't let her into the quilting room. Obviously she isn't a quilter.

    Oh my goodness that sounds just like me! LOL
    I thought it was something wrong with me! Everytime I start organizing my craft room I do the same thing! :):):)

    When my son was little I would tell him to not come out of his room until it was clean. I didn't see him for most of the day. He found long lost toys and had a great time. I now know where he gets it from:)

    I'm the same way. I start looking for something/cleaning and all of a sudden I'm cutting for pillow cases. I make a bigger mess than what I started.

    Oh, it is so easy to get side tracked. I feel your pain. The same thing happens with me. I'll be putting fabric away and see a pattern and then start cutting and then sewing and then the day is gone and I still haven't put the fabric away! Funny how we are.

    Ditto for me - once it is cleaned, I'd be happy for anyone to see it, until the next day when its trashed again. :)

    Right now 75 percent of all of my stuff is in Nebraska the other 25 % here in New mexico, Once I get moved fully up to Nebraska it should be interesting to see what I come up with. I had wanted to move into the basement with all of my sewing but we just had a major flood in there, sewer line backed up, stinky from what my husband tells me. So thats out. So who knows how long it will take me to get organized and sorted out.

    We shouldn't clean our quilting rooms....my mom always says, "a messy room is the sign of a creative mind."

    Words to live by.
