    I just may need to do this with you to be motivated, I have a grand idea but no energy to move it all. Maybe once the grandbabies all leave....

    NO! ROFL..Crlyn..i want those fat quarters folded!

    I was thinking of starting this January..

    so, Just say, "Yes Mom"..

    I will set up an album, where we can all put our pictures..if that is agreeable to everyone.Anyone that needs help with posting pic's, we can help! If you don't want to share your mess, that is fine...no fun, but fine!
    I will list as many links as i can find to help..and you need to post where you find ideas!

    I'm doing this somewhat already.... if you look at todays blog,(below my siggie) you will get a small taste of where my mind is at.... by friday, all my 'rules' etc, :thumbup: will be up....

    its gonna be a whole house thing though, and i will probably leave the studio till last, so i don't forget the rest of the house...

    besides, then i can steal all your good ideas on studio organization#5??? I think it's the 5th go round, lol!!!

    Happy new year!

    You go girl! the whole house?! yikees!
    i will go and check out your blog! Thanks!

    "Up North"..it begins when you are ready..this is what I need to get going..to be motivated!

    i just finished taking pictures of my sewing room..all the walls, and the floor..it looks like a tornado went though here..i would love to say..it is that way because of all the christmas sewing projects, but alas..it gets that way everytime i work on a project!
    i will get my pictures in and ya'all can look at them and say
    "yikees!" or
    "geez,my area is not so bad after all" or
    "I have her beat"
    "If she can show her pictures, so can i" or
    "There is no way in heck, i am going to post pictures"
    ROFL!

    I cleaned mine but then it got messy again, because that is also where I wrap my presents.

    Right now everything I have ...stash and all is piled in one corner of the room DH is setting up as a sewing room for me. He promises to start as soon as I get all the Christams decoratios down and put away (all the storage boxes are also in that room) So I will try to post pics as we go along...when I have more to show then just a huge pile of stuff!!

    I think this must be impossible, because I say it all the time too.I am gonna clean up, and then..........well, I try, but it just gets messy all over again..........what is the secret? maybe its because we are so busy sewing, we dont have time to clean up???

    ONCE a year????? hahaha! I have to do it at least once a MONTH! Invariably, the fabric I want is on the bottom of a pile, (I have them folded & piled by color plus some in drawers by color) but when I start pulling pieces out, they HAVE to fall down sometime!? Then I start all over! Of course, they're in the closet so when they fall, I can't close the doors! Have no choice but to clean it up because they always take a few more things with them! Plus the UFO's that are piled up! Couldn't pass up those great fabric sales! lol! :-D

    Just remember..creative people are a little messy! lol! I totally understand..evertime i start a project..it gets all messed up.

    No one "has" to post pictures..or "join" us..we are just giving each other a little push..I am glad some of you started already..that is the point really...make some progress in our space!
    Isn't it wonderful when you find a fabric, you totally forgot about?!
    I get sidetracked alot..start with the books and magazines, and end up sitting on the floor,reading one or two of them!
    :roll: :roll:
