    Thanks so much for the link! The preview on Amazon looks like the perfect book for me - I am in the middle of organizing, prioritizing, streamlining, and simplifying right now. I HAVE to! Starting next week, I begin a new journey with my other passion: singing. I start Choir School and rehearsals with a training choir in preparation to performing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Of course I'm thrilled, it's a lifelong dream, but I will have to simplify other things, starting in the sewing room. Whoo! here I go! I'm ordering it today. So glad you posted this, Beckie!

    I bookmarked that page and just might have to order that! Looks like her area is neat as a pin!
    She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!

If your book is anything like this one, it should break design ideas down by area. Have fun instituting some of her suggestions!

    I have this one. And am going to look in the library for others. I am getting so frustrated. I physically can't do the work of building stuff anymore, don't have the money to buy and my brother takes for ever to do things for me. I have a china cabinet that needed the little woodens strips replaced that holds the glass and it took him a year to do that. ACK. Somedays I am ready to just chuck it all. LOL Well back to reading .

    I just received this book and it looks really great ! I only wish that I had some space that was not shared with
    my family so that I could use more of the ideas.... constantly moving my sewing/quilting space seems to contribute
    to messiness--someone tries to help me move and !!!!

    "Where is my ---- ?" happens too often around here. I am sure others share my problems.

    I don't have the book. However, I have been to one of her lectures. It was inspiring.

    Hubby gave it to me for Christmas.. When our house gets built, I'm going to set up me sewing room in an organized way and start off right.. I love the book and I'm sure I'll use many of her ideas.. What a great book.. (except the part about giving away fabrics you don't think you'll use.. . how am I supposed to know?? )
