I don't know about you but there is nothing I love more than order. A place for everything and everything in its place. So why is it so dang hard to keep it that way??? You'd think the way I value neatness, that I would have figured out in 40 years how to be neat?? Yes, I admit it ---- its a never ending battle.
That said, I went to use my sewing hole for the first time in three weeks and found that I could not find it. I mean, I'm quite sure I left it there somewhere, but with all the clutter that had accumulated in the room, I'm not sure where. I've been so busy doing handwork in my recliner in front of the TV that I really haven't visited the hole in forever. . . . well. . . at least not to sew in that is. Still, I haven't had any trouble using it as a dumping ground for all things that don't belong in there. Add to that the fact that I have several projects going at once and you get. . . .wait for it. . . .a big mess!
So I thought if I blogged out the before and after, I might manage to get the room clean so I could sew again. I mean can anybody create in chaos??? I can't. Usually that includes the whole house - if the house is messy - my mind seems to be messy. Can't create with a messy mind can you??
So with your help, I've taken a couple evenings and cleaned up the room. It was a work out though since most of the things needed to go up on my third floor where I keep my fabric stash - sighhh - but God knows my thighs could use it - the work out I mean - not the fabric stash.
Doesn't it look nice??? Now onto making those pine branches!
