Sewing Room Dreams

You might not want to go in there! This was a picture taken yesterday when I was cleaning my sewing room.  When I do a big clean up of a room I tend to start in one corner and push and throw things toward the doorway.  I hope to show an "after" picture later this week.


I absolutely love having a sewing room, but it does take maintenance to keep it nice. I need to do more of this as I go along, instead of waiting until its so bad that I don't even want to go in there, much less sew in there.


This means cleaning up after each project by putting away the large pieces of fabrics in their proper places and then cutting up the scraps into usable sizes and filing them away.

Here's just one basket of scraps that has accumulated!

 
Once I finish my sewing room overhaul, I think I will get more sewing done and enjoy my light filled space once again.

Woo hoo! You got deep in there, which is what I need to do. I plan to do some major reorganizing this week, too...with my new monster gadget finding a new home in the garage. I'm already having buyer's remorse and I haven't even used the thing yet!!!

I'm still setting up my new sewing area in my new "old house". I think most of us that sew, have the same problem keeping it tidy. Especially when we are hot on a project. I'll be watching for the follow up post....

Too much fun sewing, too little time to spare for straightening up the creative mess... I feel your pain!

I'm tackling my sewing room clean up one project at a time... which is helping. If I went at it all at once, I'd get discouraged and quit. *lol*

You go Girl!! You do so much sewing that it is no wonder that "stuff" begins to pile up.
I am proud of you.

It surely is a perfect place for sewing.

I need to do that to several rooms in my house, LOL! Looks like a great room with lots of space.

Saturday Sewing: I made a clothespin bag!

I haven't made a clothespin bag in a quite a while. In fact I had to read my own clothespin bag tutorial to remember exactly how! My ...
