    Is it Eleanor Burns who does that throw scraps over your shoulder stunt? I was watching Simply Quilts one day with whomever it is and got so annoyed with the crazy woman I had to change the channel. She was just trying too hard to be funny or droll or whatever. And let me tell you: my sewing room really IS a mess! No one tossing stuff into the hall in our house. Of course, we were poor as church mice and didn't have much worth tossing any where, guess that's why today I have a difficult time throwing anything away. I don't pick it up, but I'm not throwing it out either! See the logic?

    Mess...what mess???? I can destroy my room in less than 15 minutes and then I do it over and over until it is such a mess I can hardly get in to sew. This is not a mess.

    It does look a little cluttered. Some organization is in order, easy to do. If you haven't used it in the last 5 years,
    you probably won't use it in the next 5 years. Take these things to the resale shop. Mission accomplished.

    If you call that a mess, can I hire you to clean and organize my 2 rooms?
    Honey, I could most definitely show you what a mess is, but it would horrifying for you to see and my wonderful DH (who has OCD) would never recover from it. No joke, the 2 hobby rooms we have tares him up.
    I say I know where stuff is and usually can find what ever is needed by me or him, but he is a tidy man. You want to see a clean wood shop, come on over. I can't manage a day without him, God truly blessed me with this awesome friend and husband.
    Good luck and God bless,
    Penny

    I downsized a few weeks ago.....haha
    Besides I don't have 5 years of accumulation yet. We have only been in our new house for 3 yrs. In our old house my sewing room consisted of a small desk in the kitchen and a rubber-mate tub.

    Yes it is!

    Anything out of place to me is considered messy.

    I think you need to have a real messy sewing room experience, so you can make a comparison! You are welcome any time to my "playroom". You can show up any time and I am sure you will have the "real" experience.
