    I have been blessed whith an entire 3 three rooms for my sewing area. Wouldn't you think that would be enough?

    I have a WHOLE bolt of heat'n'bond in there somewhere. Can't fine it! Maybe it's time to do some cleaning. Ya' think?

    I hear Ya!! I know it's time to clean my sewing room when I have to move fabrics, patterns, pins, rulers, etc. just to be able to cut something on my cutting board or use my ironing board!!

    Whenever I sneeze so much that I can't sew, that's one clue.

    When I can't find the table top to cut, is another.

    But, when I have company, I have to move everything out of my dining room, because I don't have any other cutting space. For convenience, I just put the portable on the end of the table, and ironing pad near by, and thread bag on the chair, and notions all around, with little tv, heater and radio close by.....who could want more?

    When I spend more time looking for things or fabric than sewing. Or when the dog starts giving me dirty looks, because he can't get to his mat in HIS room. (I have to share one of two small rooms) LOL

    I always find it more fun to clean some else's mess than my own. Maybe we should organize a "clean caravan", traveling to each other's homes and helping organize everyone. We can start at my house :)

    After I find what I'm looking for then it's time to clean up the mess I made during the search.

    You are lucky you found it. I cleaned up after my Christmas project mess so the bedroom was guest worthy and have lost all of my herbs and materials for sachets, etc. Spent about an hour and a half so far, and think I am just going to buy more so they will come out of hiding. And I thought I was pretty organized! HA!

    I clean my sewing room when I finish either a big project or a couple of small ones. It usually happens between supply trips- an ongoing project for sure.
