    Ta-da! Mission Accomplished. I got my sewing/guest room company ready by 6:30 last night.
    What. a. relief. but.what. a. chore!

    Overnight company (my hubby's brother) arrived at 7:30.
    Said he slept well (11 pm -9 am, I'd say so!) .

    (Scroll up if you missed the "before" and "progress" pictures.)

    Cleared off this piece of furniture, except for decor and lamp.
    I keep my self-kitted items here. My design wall works well on the
    floor because I can easily move it to my sewing machine or prop a couple
    of the boards side-by-side in front of the closet for a larger quilt layout.

    Got my scraps tidied up in their shoeboxes, the bookcase they're on cleared off, the cutting table reasonably
    clear (good enough), and the junk underneath it cleared out or put into the closet if I'm keeping it.
    Having junk behind closed doors works so much better on my sanity! So yes, I cheated somewhat and didn't deal with every piddly thing.


    My most cherished items in this room have nothing to do with sewing, actually.
    One is that painting by my dad, and the other is called "My Father's Legacy" which has his writings on various topics from his childhood, dating my mom, his career, his ministry, his ongoing love with my mom for decades, his love for us kids, his hobbies, his words of wisdom.

    If nothing else, cleaning this room up was good for my soul. I had dreaded it, but the reward of seeing it better organized and dusted and vacuumed all on the same day is indescribable. Might not happen till the next solar eclipse, but it's done.

    Wow! that looks fantastic, Zozee.

    I spent the day organizing the shed that is on our wrap around porch---took everything out, put huge amount of stuff on the cement pad next to the alley for alley-shoppers to pick through and then put the remaining stuff back in. Now you can actually walk into the shed and find stuff. Only problem is I found what looks to be a frayed electrical wire---Yikes! no using the outlets in the shed or on the back porch until the electrician can get here to check them out--glad I found it before burning down my 100+ year old wooden house....

    Your finding the frayed wire was a lucky break - hopefully you can get it fixed quickly!

    Wow, zozee, great job! Think of how satisfying it will be to get back in there to sew. It is a lovely space. I love your long legged birds on your design wall, too. Did you use the insulation boards for your designing wall?
    rryder, lucky break to find the wire. Your work was rewarded just by that alone.
    We are doing our own version of stuff and hide tomorrow before we have company on Saturday for a week. This makes me a little crazy because it feels like one step forward, a jillion steps back. But once they leave, I will truly dedicate a good chunk of time to reorganizing. I promise.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Lots2do, the design board is indeed insulation boards I had cut to the size that works for the space IF I were to put them up . But as it stands, I like the portability of them.Aren't the birds adorable ? They're addictive, too. Like Girl Scout Thin Mints, where you say "I'll just eat two," but before you know it, the whole sleeve is gone
