My sewing room should not be called a sewing room. It does a disservice. My room is all my stuff that didn’t fit into our neat and orderly lives. I have a lot of stuff. And, I’ve taken the smallest room in the house. And, even that is an improvement over when my sewing room was the walk in closet of the room that’s now my sewing room. So, I just need to accept that my room is going to be cluttered and get over it.
Now that I’m over that, I can celebrate the organization that I’ve brought to the space. Over the weekend, I added a shelf to the walk in closet in my room and re-organized everything in there.
(And, just so the first picture you see on your dashboard isn’t my cluttered sewing room, Sydney took care of the neighbor’s cats while they were in Canada and they thanked her with Tim-Tams. Okay, all you Aussies, I see what you’re talking about.
And, back to the room.
All my garment making stuff is neat and well organized (and vertically stacked instead of being stuck into empty space here and there).
And, all my portable sewing machines are lined up and I can just grab one and go, depending on the project. I was able to do that on Saturday when I picked a machine for quilt bee.
Knitting and crochet and cross-stitch, all in one place.
All the batiks, together and ready to go.
Fabrics and patterns, kitted up but not started.
And, started projects, waiting to be finished.
Yes, there’s only those two hanging there. Wait, please don’t move that. Stop! Please.
Um, UFO’s being used as a curtain to hide my UFO’s from myself. But, hey, at least they’re all in one spot, right?
It’s rude to count.
And, all of my office and desk stuff in one spot.
You know that feels good, even it it looks cluttered.
My next big hill to climb is this one.
I like to put my projects in containers; so handy; everything in one spot; just grab and go. Or, more like pack and hide. So, when I organized and combined everything, I ended up with this stack of about 25 empty containers. I could put my projects back in them. Or, I could donate them to goodwill and then replace them and put my projects back in them, because I know that eventually, I will repeat that behavior.
So far, they’re just sitting there, mocking me, like that rain-stick in the center mocking the misting of rain we got yesterday and the chance that it might actually rain on Wednesday.
It’s an August miracle.
The mist yesterday dropped the temperature about 15 degrees, around 6pm. Oh, so nice. Don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining.
Okay, it’s Monday. Today, I am looking at a new job. I want to find someone that worked for this boss before, just to see what I can expect. We’ll see. Keep your fingers crossed. This would be a really good thing, even though it would be lots of change.
But, change is good, right?
