    Bebe's messy sewing room

    I give up I clean this room over and over and it never stays clean. I give up
    Let it stay messy and let me sew.
    A tour some of my fabric stash in wire baskets, books, patterns and other machines in my closet.
    More wireed baskets with my fabric, my green singer sewing machine.
    My Bernina sewing machine on my L shape table.
    The cutting tablechubby made for me the right height for me and easy to move has rollers and storage space love it
    Okay back to work in mymessy room.

    A messy room is a sign of a genius at work! If mine is neat and clean, it means I haven't been doing anything in it but if it is messy, it shows I have been busy at work!!! I love your L-shaped table. Tables I have looked at are way to expensive or too big or too small or too wobbly. Yours give me an idea to make one. My brother said it would be easy to do...Thanks for sharing and stay messy!!!

    BeBe: Maybe we can form a club. Except when we redecorate or change it in some way I would bet 85% of our sewing rooms look like yours, or in my case worse. I've decided not to sweat it. It gets a good clean when a project is finished but if I can find a spot to cut I call it good.
    Love the block on your design wall. Is that going to be a whole quilt?

    I got my table at a thrift store. It was a cubie work area desk. It had a shelf but I took it off.
    love that I can turn around and press as I go along and go back to sewing.
    very sturdy the legs are metal.
    hope you get your table made soon

    It does not look messy to me. I clean after each project, no keeping it clean while I am working.

    It looks like you can find whatever you in need in a short time, you are auditioning fabrics and have many projects going. Not messy at all! I like ufo's, when I get bored with one, on to the next...keeps me wanting to be in my craft room.

    Can you get to everything in your room without knocking something over?? Can you find everything you need for a project without spending more than 1 hour looking for it?? Do you have the dreaded dust bunnies under control! If you answer YES!, YES! and YES! Your room is not messy, just well used! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!! LOL

    Who cares how it looks as long as you can find what you want ad you're happy. My philosophy is, if it bothers someone, don't let them in there, it's your space. That being said my DH refuses to go upstairs in my room. I think he's afraid he'll get lost and never come out

    Not as messy as mine! My room is so small that I have to move the ironing board to get in and out!

    I don't think your room is messy. It looks pretty organized to me.

    Hey, Bebe...where is it written that our quilting places have to be neat? Your room is so interesting...I didn't know where to look first and every spot has something different. What a great environment in which to create. If you like it, it inspires you, then enjoy. I know I enjoyed seeing it.

    I don't think your space looks messy at all. You may have a lot of things going on but to me not a mess. Your space doesn't look like a lot but everything looks like it is where it needs to be. When I'm done for the day, I just shut the door. Often my 4 legged dust mop walks in and moves to the door entrance and takes a lot of micro scraps with him. Other than that I may grab the long handled dust mop while I'm sitting down and give the floor a swish. Sometimes not!. No quilt police here! I like your space.

    Looks okay to me--normal, at least if you are doing something. I figure a perfectly clean and organized room means someone just spent hours on it, organizing it, and not "using" it.

    I've seen much worse messy rooms on here than yours! Don't worry about it and sew.

    Hmmm -- I thought if you can see your floor, your room is not messy. Yours looks a whole lot better than miine, but I just got through pulling out half my stash to find fabric for a bunch of I Spy quilts.
