    I've only been in mine for around 10 weeks but find it easy to just tidy before I leave each day. At the moment I'm working on 3 quilts. Only thing I can't find yet is my pinking shears. I know they were on my table before I packed up.
    I still have quite a lot of sorting to do but am enjoying sewing at the moment. I am still finding it amazing that I had so much packed into my bedroom.
    Alexandra, are you not worried having all those bolts sitting under an open window? BTW I love your lovely big space.

    If mine ever got neat, I would think about that. I always have the project I'm working on out, as well as the next couple to start! I just can't work in a place that feels too clean!

    Wow, such a sizeable room and all that natural lighting (windows). You are well organized. i would hate to mess that up also!!! My 8x8 room (does not include fabric) has tote drawers and shelving from floor to ceiling on three walls. Had to make up a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to list all the stuff so I don't have to spend an entire evening wondering which drawer or shelf will I find it. LOL Dig in and dirty it up.

    Yes, but I'm one of those weirdos that cleans up when I'm finished. When I had an office job, I never left until my desk was completely cleaned off and everything filed appropriately. Now when I sew, everything has to be put away or I can't start the next time I'm working there.

    Yes! I feel that way. However, I think I better just get over it so I get some things done! Thanks for posting. Your studio is beautiful!

    Winnie=Sunnie;5630460]Never had that problem. Somehow I get inspired when I "neaten" my space. Right now I am destashing and it feels so good that I have become very productive. Hope to give away some yardage tomorrow that will never get used by me. Some of those "what was I thinking" fabrics.[/QUOTE]

    Sunnie.... I'm sooo wishing I were home in Burgettstown Pa....an hour away but I'd drive the distance to take it off your hands...LOL. I'm a new quilter and envious of all the people with such great stashes...seems like it will be forever until I have enough that I would even want to part with scraps. Maybe in the spring when I come home you'll be doing some destashing again.

    Sweet sassy molassy you have a nice big well lite space! It looks neat now! If you clean up after every project it stays fairly neat I find. I can't stand it if it's too messy!

    Oh I cleaned my studio and it looked sooo good. Now it's back to "normal". I must clean it soon so that humans can use the space.

    I love to get mine cleaned and am always reinspired to make more quilts! I like keeping it pretty organized but that is just because I feel more creative in a cleaned area

    I am with you there! LOL We are searching for the "right" retirement location and home. I also have on "want list", proximity to a few good sewing machines shops for classes. (Embroidery/& Longarm). Is that too much to ask?

    my home studio is part of my finished basement which is an L-shaped large space. I took over the bottom of the 'L' and must keep it tidy when not in use - having it open to 'prying eyes of company' I'm forced to keep it neat and clean. Being it's part of the tv/family/living room, I can quilt away yet still be close to my DH as he watches tv in the evenings.
