    What a difference a day makes

    .......over Christmas and New Year my sewing stuff got put away and my sewing room got turned into a spare room for my daughter and her husband.....they live in the same village but both my girls and family love to come and spend Christmas with us and for that I am eternally gratefully.....but after they went back it became the junk room for a week....so today I set about sorting it out....It is such a small room that it has be kept tidy.........but I thought it might be a interesting thread to start..........What a difference a day makes......what would your room look like if you spent a day not sewing but tidying........I hasten to add at this point it only gets done like this once or twice a year and I can't wait to get back quilting.
    First picture is yesterday.....the rest are this afternoon.

    Love your cabinets, so white and clean. The bed coverings and pillows are so sweet. You did a good job straightening, now get to quilting girl.

    OOPS! UPSIDE DOWN, but so fresh & clean looking. I'm sure it's a great place to create. Happy stitches.

    Great job! If my sewing room even looked like your FIRST one, I'd be happy!

    I've always wanted to overcome gravity. How ever did you do it? ;-)

    Your room looks nice.

    What a great room! It gives off such a relaxing vibe. I could spend forever in a space like that.
    The picture isn't upside for me... Maybe it's an iPad thing?

    Love your room and all the comments about the furniture. Reminds me of Mary Poppins with the furniture floating and also the Fred Astaire movie where he dances on the ceiling. I love your room!

    I'll bet lots of us do the same routine. I have an extra two bedrooms and both are used for the holidays by family. The quilting/sewing room gets a good clean up so the two beds can be pulled out only when guests are coming to stay overnight. However I can't quilt unless the room is neat anyway. My mother's voice on the tape in y head says do the house fist, even though she's been dead nearly 50 years.
