Progress.....

I cleaned for 3 hours in my sewing room today...

Halfway there...

Made some inspiration boards by stapling these (along with some batting) onto canvas.  Can pin things onto them that will inspire me to create...



Rearranged the daybed I keep in my sewing room.  Pushed it up against the railing and butted the ironing board up against it.  Makes the most of my space.


In my closet, I'm organizing my many UFOs...

Now for the messy part...

This stuff is headed downstairs.


This is a very nice old machine (Necchi) and cabinet that I got from my sister.  I think I'm going to move it to a different area so I will have more elbow room.  It will be set up for quilting full-time.  My other (newer machine- a singer) will be set up for full-time piecing near my cutting area.


This is the stack of things I still need to sort through and organize.  It's a table that I have my biggest cutting mat on and it's piled up with baskets/tubs full of misc. stuff... Buttons, thread, scraps, blocks, kleenex, ink pens, you name it.  

Notice my big design wall?  Love it.  Is new.

Here's another view of the mess...

This room is tricky.  Since it is the attic, the ceiling is slanted.  Makes for tricky arrangement.  I would love to have a wall of cabinets and shelves (might someday) but they'd have to be custom.  I even have room for a longarm quilting machine... but alas no funds...

A girl can dream...

Thanks! Glad you like them

I made a bunch of French memo boards (like this but with ribbon... and buttons at the intersections...not pieced). They were a hit.
