    cleaning my room has really snowballed! I began sorting scraps and packing boxes of "giveaways". So far so good. However, I came across fabrics that called out to be stitched together so I ended up beginning yet another scrap quilt. Then I added some batiks to the mixture and that forced me to begin a second quilt all out of batiks. The next thing I knew I was in my LQS buying MORE batiks to fill in the gaps of the scrap quilt I'd started in an effort to use up my scraps! What a cycle! But what fun! I now have my batiks strung all over my room so I can enjoy each and every one. And the new batik scrap quilt is gorgeous!

    DH is moving furniture in DD's room. Well, not so much her room - she's 24 and has lived in another state for 3 years. He's taking out her bed, putting in a sleeper sofa. Has to take out a dresser. Just heard him muttering about finding more quilting stuff in the dresser. Uh oh, busted.

    Well, I had asked about making it my quilting room and he didn't want to - so he'll just have to live with my having stuff everywhere!

    Hi,

    You got busted with your quilting goodies. That is funny! Why don't you just make it your quilting room. You can tell hubby that you can just close the door and it will be your room.

    Of course it does not seem to stay like this for long:)

    Well, everyone is making such great progress in the "spring cleaning" that i feel ashamed of mine. I will be able to start getting back to my quilting/craft room soon. We have had one of our daughters along with her husband and child living with us for a while and they will be moving next weekend! Maybe, then i can get my room back to some kind of balance!

    im really looking forward to sharing before and after pics with you all in the very near future! whooo hooo!

    i just love this board, thanks for all the info everyone shares with us!

    I'm doing the same thing. I'll organize for a while and then quilt. Too much time away from quilting isn't good for anyone!!! :o)

    This is what I am doing today...again...I again have way to much fabric and its overwelming...People give me there fabrics..which is nice...but after I have used them mutiple times in scrap quilts I get sick of looking at them. I am so proud of myself....I filled two boxes and a large trash bags....they are all going to good will. some yardage and many large pieces...yah...I had so many scraps that I keep saying and making scrappies....I want to make a quilt from fabric that I bought for some projects. So goodbye scraps...and hello to all the fabrics I have ignored. ; ) I also got rid of two of my scrap baskets and going to try and not have the other two overflow. Sewing room already looks better.
