Wanna see what I've been working on?

Have you guys noticed my sewing and creating has come to a screeching halt? Wanna guess why? Just scroll down......



























Keep scrolling.........





















TADA!! Could you work in this mess?




I can't. We took the leaf out of our kitchen table, so my sewing machine no longer fits there very well, so it was time that I tackled this mess. My poor sewing machine, sitting here among the clutter. Its so sad. I think its mad at me, it won't even look at me.


But look ~ its a start. You can see a corner of my table! So, today I am folding fabrics and getting my stash completely moved into my closet. My table will be taken down and we're bringing the rocking chairs in so the new puppy doesn't chew on them. We are considering moving my sewing desk out into the living room.....will that help me keep the mess under control? I hope so. I really feel like I'm showing you guys my underwear drawer :D




Over the weekend Ben drew this and said "Look Mommy, I designed a quilt for you".....



...it just so happens that I already had these squares cut and in my scraps bin. I guess we'll be making Ben a small quilt sometime soon.

I love the pic your son drew! So sweet! I have a craft cabinet that occasionally spews out stuff because I can't shove another thing into it. I should have taken a pic of my craft table before I cleaned it off. It was a big mess!

Jessica-That is one messy area! I just got done cleaning up my sewing room-it looked about like that! Messy means you are a busy, creative person.

Hi Jessica! Your sewing room looked like mine did before I packed it up. I can't wait to get it unpacked at the new place so I can start sewing again.

Its so nice to see a fellow sister from FV here!

So sweet how your little boy drew a quilt pattern for you!

My sewing mess isn't confined to one area - at least you have that to be thankful for, that yours is! Happy cleaning/organizing!

I feel your pain. It must be the time of year because I just took pictures of my sewing area and was going to post about them. It's bad. But I have a space for my sewing machine and a half cleared off table so I'm good to go!:) Your mess seems like it's in one area mine is the whole room!:( I'll get it cleaned here soon. Have a great day. I love that your son drew you a pattern!!:):)

I'm having a minor heart attack over your sewing space! LOL! Although really I shouldn't comment because my scrapping space would be like that if I had that much room to scrap in...but my space is smaller, so my mess is more contained.

LOVE Ben's drawing--that is so cute!
