    I have been working hard the last week on rearranging and cleaning and sorting my fabrics, projects and sewing equipment. I moved a desk upstairs to be a cutting area. I put a lot of my fabric on boards and turned my quilting machine around so it faces the middle of the room.
    I usually make a huge mess before I clear the clutter. I didn't want to show pictures until I was finished because it was such an awful mess for a few days. I may have to wait for my pictures to be imported before I can post them. Can't wait to start sewing again but need to do my desk first.

    Wonderful!! My quilt machine got "moved" to basement with just enough space to walk around it OVER 100 boxes line walls yet to be organized and unpacked. Lost our 40'by 80 foot building that was home to my quilt shop and archery store-- Thousands of magazines and quilt books plus bolts and bolts of fabric.Wasn't much help in moving because had cast on foot and sons and hubby upset because of bankruptcy so things just moved no thought was 2 months before had courage to venture "down" now just have clutter blindness and only go to do other lady's quilts You have inspired me to get with the program Thanks for sharing

    quiltlonger- so sorry to hear about your hard times. I took one small section at a time and that made such a difference.

    This reminded me of one of my favorite movies: Under the Tuscan Sun. She tackled that big, huge rundown house by starting with just one little corner, and made it comfortable, then just kept going, a little bit at a time. Quiltlonger: just start with one little corner. You'll be surprised how good it'll make you feel. Then keep going a little bit at a time.

    Yikes, I just looked at my sewing room. I need to heed my own words. :)

    What boards do you use to organize your fabric...did you make them out of something or are these the ones you buy...

    WOW! You put a lot of work into that! It look just great. I bet you want to just go in and sit and look at it for awhile!

    Quiltlonger, I'm so sorry for your problems right now. I hope and pray everything will work out in the next few months. Begin to plan those small steps to help you get back into the things you enjoy doing. Arranging your basement room to make it comfortable for you will help a lot.

    Boy, am I glad that I was busy this past weekend. You would have really put me to work. I still remember when we were younger and you had me help clean your attic. I think this was a bigger chore than that. Hope to see you soon.

    I have a huskvarna/viking with the inspira frame. the handles are on the tray of the frame. I am not sure where to find ones for yours.
    I just got this newsletter today and this site was listed
    http://www.HandiQuilter.com
    check this page and see if these are the handles for your machine and table

    Good for you to have such a nice place to sew. I'm sure you will get it straightened out once you start working it there.

    wouldn't that be fun to go from place to place and organize? If Santa picks me up I'll be glad to jump off the sleigh at your house...

    I need a fairy godmother to wave her wand and help me get my sewing area clean. I have years before my kids give up a bedroom for me to use entirely for my quilting. Right now, I can barely find the floor in my sewing/laundry room. It is depressing.
