    What a great idea - to take a picture to remind you! If I ever get my space organized think I will do the same and maybe it will inspire me to keep it up!

    sewing table

    Tell me more about your table. Where did you get it? What Brand and model number is it? When to the quilt show in Hampton (my first) and was disappointed to not see anyone with them to sell.

    I got rid of a bunch of books that I hadn't looked at in years. I still need to sort through the rest of those. I have UFO's each in their own basket . I have mending in its own basket.I found a pair of jeans I had forgotten I bought that needed the hem taken down. . I am taking 2 boxes of things to Habitat or CHKD . Not sure which yet. Still have things I want to go through and re organize but I got the big part done I think.

    I am assuming you are talking about the sewing machine table. It is one I bought a few years ago from Staples when I was in GA. It is adjustable and I used it that way for a long time. But I had my brother cut a good size hole in it , put a shelf under neath so I could set my machine in it. The inside cut edge was finished off it the iron on edging counter tops. We got that in Home Depot.

    Very nicely done - I have been trying to organize my room for over a year now - never seem to get it finished - I am great at moving stuff from one pile to another

    It seemed that way to me too. Until I bit the bullet and got rid of some stuff first thing. I still have more to organize but they are all in little plastic drawers , the kind with wheels, so I am doing one draw at a time. Did my pencil drawer yesterday. :-)
    I do these kinds of things on those days were Nothing seems to be going right. Yesterday it was everything I started I needed something for that I didn't have. lol So I clean. Makes me feel like I have at least accomplished something.

    Good job! I really like your room. I love your thread holder(s).
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    It looks so nice now. I think you should celebrate by going out to buy more fabric!
