    oh my poor cutting table

    My camera snapped this picture today and I didn't realize it until I went in to edit photos. (I think somebody is trying to tell me something)

    Does anyone else's cutting table look like this?? I have stacks shoulder high - ughhhhhhhh...... I've moved into the dining room to work until I can get it cleared.

    If it was clean, I'd wonder if you had been busy... When I see a work space like this, I know you've been busy!

    I don't have a sewing room. Sewing machine on kitchen table, cutting mat on my freezer in basement, ironing board in the bathroom and tubs of fabric in just about every room.

    That's what my dinning room table and living room table looks like every, single day!! But there is hope!! The kids are getting an apartment together and will be leaving the house on Friday!! So, I get to change one of the rooms into my sewing room.

    LOL!!! I guess I'm the neat freak, or the fact that I have a 21 month old who gets into everything, but I have everything organized and stashed away when I'm not working on it. Lil fingers...

    Seems like you have an attack table like mine. It attacks everything that passes by

    that was the weird thing - I didn't mean to take this picture, it just appeared when I was looking through my camera card today - I think somebody is trying to tell me something.

    Looks normal to me. My dining room table, sewing room, living room corner, etc all look like that. I have my sewing machine set up on my ironing board in the living room, but even it is starting to get cluttered. I guess I better start cleaning. LOL

    I have a huge cutting table my husband made out of a full sheet of marine plywood, sometimes at least half of it will look like that. I try to keep the other half for cutting, ironing and peicing when needed. From time to time I will go clean it off and stack things nicely on one end or put the other stuff away where it is suppose to be.
    Seems to me that is the cutting table of somene who is not just stashing fabric but using it.

    Sorry, no mine doesn't. I couldn't cut anything if it does as I would have no room for fabric
