The Scary Truth

9 Oct

So I have not blogged, and mostly I have not blogged because I have not sewn anything in a really long time. The last quilt I completed was almost a year ago now!

So you all know about the baby – and that might be excuse enough – but the real truth is that I had no room to sew. When we were renovating our house before baby’s arrival we moved a ton of stuff into my sewing room, and even after we moved things back out it never really recovered. My shelf was falling apart so I had fabric stacked all over the floor. Add a new knitting hobby to the mix and you have total chaos!

The good news is that I got some new shelving this weekend and now I start the long process or sorting and folding all of my fabric and putting it away so I can clean up the rest of the room. There have been so many nights I have wanted to sew but I haven’t because of the giant mess in there. Things are hard to find and it just weighed on me mentally.

Photographic evidence:

From the door – SCARY!

Junk, junk and more junk:

Knitting stuff – on the floor – and other random garbage:

Cutting table – not much cutting going on:

So let this confession be the start of something great. I hope I can share some after pictures really soon.

    I know what you mean when you say it is hard to sew when the room is a mess. (And not a mess from crafting but just in a mess) I hope your new organization will allow you to get back to some sewing. I know I always get a lot accomplished in my craft room after a good clean. 3 scrapbook pages to be exact for me ! 🙂
