It is cleaned up!



Certainly not all, but a big part of the holiday week-end was spent wading through my sewing room. I think the real insult came when my friend Ronda said it looked like something had "exploded" in there. Gracious! So, while the table still needs some serious attention, you can walk across the floor without leaping over anything. I even went out today and bought 4 new boxes for UFO's, as well as one for buttons. The "stash" is pretty good, but the collection of fat quarters (or other smaller, saveable pieces) does need some help. I'm working on it! [This room is only about 10' x 10' square, no closet and about 2/3 way up the walls is concrete.]
My latest exchange efforts were mailed to Belgium today to Chantal (she sent me the darling blue/yellow striped thread and needle/pin holder). I can't show you what I sent her until next week when it should have arrived at her end. But if I do say so, it's pretty darn cute! The way this works, I now will choose someone else to make something for and get it in the mail - all as a surprise. Hmmmmm. What's next? Oh yeah, and I'll keep at the room, too.

Marne - wow, I'm so jealous that you have a sewing room to clear up :) I use my husband's office, and just push his stuff into a corner. He isn't so keen on this method :)

what a nice room you've got! I'm the proud owner of a sewingroom too, but it's also the 'junkyard' of ruud, my friend..... We're busy with the coming baby's room and now at the moment, I can't even walk there, because all of the other stuff that's stored there now. I'll be glad when I can clean it up and use it again!

Greetings,
Suzanne

What a room, I love it. Don't care about the mess, it's because you use it. Wondering what great things you'll be making next there. Hugs
