I cleaned my sewing room too and then I messed it up again! A vicious circle it is!

I started my reorganization and it is going to take me a little while. I found several wip's and ufo's and I am hoping to get things the way I think they should be!!! I wish I had some organizing elves who worked at night while I slept!!!LOL!

I need to clean up my craft room. It used to be (still is) my stamp room, but I no longer stamp, so the counters get piled high with quilting items and other miscellany. As we gear up for Christmas, it become 'gift central' .Really need to clear it out and make some tough decisions about the thou$and$ of dollar$ of stamping supplies. (Yes, Thousands. i was a Stamping' Up demonstrator for 11 years.)

I just had to finish piecing the backing for them.
That's exactly what I did on New Year's too. I feel much more organized and productive. I don't know why I didn't tackle it sooner.

Haha! I did the same thing by cleaned my sewing room for the new year! All fabric is now in stacks or wrapped around cardboard, sewing area is free from scraps and threads that were cluttering the area. I vacuumed the carpet and made it all so pretty. It's so pretty, I can hardly stand the clean look - LOL - it gave me inspiration, as well as being re-acquainted with what material I have to work with this year! Now I have three projects going at once! what happened to my promise to self on working with one project at a time!? Guess I'm considered a "quilting junkie", sigh.

Wanna come to my house and work your magic? I just moved and my sewing room is full of boxes, and chaos reigns.
