Even though I started my 2011 resolution on 12/8/10...after my last craftshow was done for the year & my DD left to go back to N.C. I said I would clean-out & clean-up my craftroom by 1/1...took me all this time of steady working, but I got it done. Boy! Does it feel good!!! Let's see how long it lasts...I also vowed to finish UFO's that have been 1/2 finished for over 2 years (some as much as 5!--funny what you find when you clean out), I will start on those on Tues. First I want to finish the fun signs I'm making for my craftroom (will be pics in a couple of days). I also have at least a dozen quilts (mostly for charity, but a few to sell at shows) to quilt & bind, 1/2 doz. tablerunners for selling (all are from scraps & stash). They've been hanging around for most of the year. I have a Janome 6600 on layaway till Feb. & will do the quilts & runners with it. I have a Janome 9000 that is my workhorse & also quilts beautifully, but small throat area. I also have a Janome 300E & need to get back to my embroidery again. I also have a Viking Designer 1 that was bought 1 1/2 yr. ago & never turned on yet...I will learn how to use it this month, then will have to learn the 6600 next month. Also, have my craft inventory to get done by 3/1 for taxes. I also have to remake craftshow items (it's a one-of-a-kind booth, no 2 alike of anything, even multiple items) & I need to get my decorative clothing started also for the shows. I'm also in the process of an internet bi-monthly BOM & a weekly mystery quilt. Boy! Until writing this, I didn't realize just how busy this year is going to be!!! Sorry for the BOOK...I just had to let someone know I got that room cleaned up...hubby laughs & says it won't stay that way for long...get pics! Hope everyone's year is full of beautiful, creative things!!!

I agree, you need pictures! Glad to see you put your stitching to good use. I did a lot of craft shows when my kids were little. Haven't done that in years!

Congratulations on getting your room clean and ready for 2011. Take a few deep breaths before you start running.

Ok everyone...here are the pics you wanted. There are a few so I will break it up. It's been a few days now & it's still clean, even though I've already been working on several projects already. I still need to put up shelf for speakers for cassette/cd player hubby got me so I could listen to music (have lots of 70's & 80's music on cassettes) and books on cd when tv not on. Also want to make chair covers & machine covers later. Blank place on table is for 6600 coming off layaway in Feb.

Center back of room--remember I'm a crafter too--inventory is pretty low right now

Center back area

Far wall to the left

Far left end

As you come into room looking right

As you look directly in

Left of entry--more craftshow items
