well, I am at the point if I don't keep it all organized, I can't possibly work.
I know that makes me a minority, but I have lots of stuff. I don't look down my nose at those that don't stay organized, bc I am that way, every other hour. It's a constant battle I tell you,...and yes, it does eat up quilting time.
I just can't create in craziness, and I am constantly making craziness as I create...it's a doggone vicious cycle!
Want an example?

This is only part of my sew-cave, and i am still cleaning and straightening, but shelves galore, have stuff neatly stacked, in other parts of room. will get around to posting more, one day :)

Thank you for inspiration to move forward. I was blessed to have my neice want the beds in a guest room. That was my signal to create this as my sewing studio. The room is large, hard wood floors. three windows . I have started and it is so wonderful to have an organized room. It quiets my spirit and lets me fell creative, even if not yet :lol: My challenge is to use what I already have in the house to make this work without spending a fortune. I saw a wonderful folding quilting table for $400 and realized, I have an old oak table in the dinning room that does that!!! DH hleped me lug it upstairs and WOW this works for me. I will post pictures when it is completed.

If it only took you a day to get organized, I'd say you don't have enough small scraps. Time to go shopping! ;) ;)

Yeah, I can commiserate. My sewing room is a disaster and I'm supposed to have a group of 8 ladies coming over sometime next week for the first meeting of the Baby Jane Bee. :shock:

We had a water problem 2 days before Christmas. I bent down to get something out of a drawer and when I stood up
my knee's were soaked. We had to take 16" out of my wall from floor to ceiling. Everything is piled up all over the basement, the carpet was soaked, etc. The faucet had been
dripping for who knows how long. Just worried about my stash stinking.............woe is me....oh, and the oven konked out while Christmas dinner was cooking. My sewing room looks like Who did it and ran?

Oh no! Make sure to wash any fabric that got wet so that no mold grows on it. I just learned there is a natural mold that loves to grow on cotton fabric. No sense encouraging it. ;) I hope your faucet & the basement are set to right soon.
