    My sewing room is so stuffed with fabric, etc. and it is a mess. I am kind of ashamed...but I do get alot of stuff made...so I'll just have to deal with it!

    Are you kidding me???? I have been gasping every day looking at mine but it's getting there. To me that is our room and permission should be granted to visitors. Honestly

    When I have one or two projects on my design wall & no room for anything more I lay blocks out on the floor. You have to walk through my sewing room to get to the kids play room (both in the finished basement). My kids know the drill, they just tip-toe very carefully over my project & straignten it if they mess it up.

    No matter how bad my sewing room looks, the play room is always worse, so it's all good.

    Does the gasp have to be limited to the sewing room to qualify? LOL

    As a matter of fact.... I just let out a horrified gasp yesterday
    !.. I'm working on a broken dishes quilt for a co-worker with fabric she gave me,( most of it is poly cotton, I wouldn't use, couldn't bear to throw it away.. it'll have memories for her.) anyway, what a huge mess! there's pieces of fabric strewn from one end to the other and starting to migrate into the hall way; I think I'll be done with the cutting this week, so I can clean up.

    I don't have a sewing room so my "creativity" gets to be spread all over the living room especially as a deadline approaches. My DH is particularly patient about it. My DS who is 6 doesn't always understand why he has to pick up his toys and I don't have to pick up mine. :)

    I'd be more annoyed at SIL for her reaction! It is your home, she is a guest! Unless it was a gasp of "OMG, I love that creation"! :)

    jaciqltznok - do I spy a part of a Dear Jane quilt in your photo?

    And no, no one gasps at my area. It's not huge, but I do try to keep it semi tidy between projects.

    My husband admires my work and used to ask me to show it to everyone who stopped by. I finally told him to stop, I appreciated his pride in my work, but I would only show it to persons that I thought would appreciate it. As for my sewing room, I gasp every now and then and stop to pick up some of the clutter.

    Nah...If they did, I wouldn't pay any attention! Only my DH and quilt buddy ever see it. It's hidden away upstairs with the door closed, to keep the cats out!

    Besides, after watching Peter Walsh last night, I changed my mind about my sewing room being messy!

    I don't mind if it's family seeing it- they know I keep a clean house. But when for some reason a person not well aquainted sees my sewing area, I don't want to explain & yet I always feel I must. It makes no sense to put away EVERY LITTLE THING just to get it back out again-plus that's a time waster. So it is what it is-my house- ya don't like it, ya know where the door is.The rest of my house is cleaned daily.

    May her next gasp be at the beauty of one of your quilts that you give to someone other than her.......

    My room looks like a bomb went off in there. I clean up between projects, but right now I've got a couple going on plus I'm slowly trying to get fabric on boards for better organization and that stuff if all in the floor too. Its quite a mess.

    A tidy house is a sign of a boring person! You must be quite a fun person to be around! Wanna meet for lunch!

    Your DH was probably very proud of what you do and wanted to show it off.
    I wish I can just get my room clean enough to find what I am looking for

    My quilt room is very soothing and relaxing. Even when my husband gives a tour, everybody is very impressed, even those who do not quilt. They like my 'space'. Never is it really a mess. He's proud of it, and I am.
