To a HUGE MESS
Join me in a studio clean up?
I just spent the better part of the last week tearing apart my sewing room looking for something. I found a whole bunch of other stuff, like a shelf, and the equivalent of three reams of paper for recycling, maybe four.
There are magazines that need some attention, good ones to that feature adult beverages that bring great joy in limited quantities in the sewing room. There is fabric for quilts. My sweetie’s bed is in need of a new quilt. And I need to piece. While I do not currently have a day job I can focus on making a beautiful quilt for him.
Some time back I ordered the Cherrywood Vincent van Gogh challenge fabric, and the idea is whirling around my head singing sweet music, in need of an outlet.
My inspiration wall is full of clutter. Notes of future quilts that I thought I would do. Words of Inspiration, Art work, fabric…all that have a place in this space. But visually it’s now making me nutty.
And there’s the quilts in progress that need my attention. Oh, so many quilts, and friends and family waiting for years go get these things while I’ve tried building something out of teaching.
I’m going to take a page or six out of the Debby Brown organization tips, that she regularly shares with me. Not in a, “you must do everything my way and all will be well in your world”, but in a “here’s how I manage to keep myself meeting goals” kind of way.
And not driving myself crazy next February, March, and April getting my stuff together.
So I’m starting a tidy up. I’m going to do a little bit of a tidy up before I show you more of what I’m doing. Kind of like cleaning up before the housekeeper comes to clean.
Later this year I’m starting something new. I need to get my ducks in a row and that means reaching out to someone to help me make that happen. A few people have already liked the new fb page. When I get those ducks following me I’ll send you over to the new digs.
Have a very quilterly week!
