True Confessions

In my last post, I told of how I have let things slide. Really, I have let them just go to hell in a handbasket. There, I said it. Now I will prove it by showing you my sewing room. I thought I would get the whole mess cleaned up by mid-August. Who was I fooling?



In my own defense, I must let you know that I work nearly all the time. I work a couple of days in my husband's office as a neurotherapist. I also quilt all of the customer quilts for a local quilt shop on the longarm machine that lives in my livingroom. 300 quilts last year. If that's not enough, I started working an occasional day in my friend's bead shop so the other employees can have an extra day off. Yikes! I need a day off! (Bead shop job ends next week)



The real reason that I have created a royal mess is that I'd rather make things or dream up projects than clean up. I read on another blog about having Obsessive Creative Disorder. That's me.



Anyhow, today the cleanup began and I found my camera (!) in time to show you the challenge ahead.






This room is a whopping 7' x 11' and contains enough stuff to make a zillion quilts and about the same number of pieces of jewelry.
Stand by for pictures of progress.....

Lindy...! 300 quilts in a year? That's almost one a day...! Holy doodle...!

Okay, sorry for all the exclamation marks.

But, holy doodle...!

Kath said...

OOh I would so enjoy helping you sort that lot out! Other peoples fabric, boxes, jars and UFOs are endlessly fascinating don't you find!

Lindy said...

Holy doodle indeed, Jo! And Kath, I think you have enough to sort out in your new home, though other folks things are more interesting, aren't they?

Jeez Louise! I thought you were kidding about the piles of things.
I'd just love to go snooping through
that stash! It was so nice to work with you today...my attitude is much better tonight!

This looks like Home, Sweet Home to me and my art room.

But wait.

I don't have 300 quilts to show for it.

Goodness sakes alive, you sound like a busy lady. Makes me feel guilty sitting here with my feet up playing on the laptop! You'll have that sewing room whipped into shape in no time!

Well, if confession is good for the soul...you are cleansed after this post! We all have hobby rooms, spare bedrooms or junk closets so I'm not gonna throw any stones. I saw your post over on Jayme's blog and glad I came over for a visit. Love the pups waiting at the door in your next days post! We have an old man Cocker Spaniel Ben who occasionally does the blog for me. Come over to Granny Mountain for a visit...
