After the storm - my sewing room!

My Sewing Room

Sometimes we just have to clean and get organized! Lol, this is my mess after I finished making a quilt. I find it so therapeutic to spend time cleaning and organizing and re-acquainting myself with old friends (other fabrics) after a quilt storm hits.  Sometimes this can take days. And that is ok!  It helps me to redirect and refocus on what I want to make next.

Don't you find that when you are in a 'cleaning' mode that your thoughts become clearer? That you become more energized and yet relaxed at the same time?

    1. Thanks! I was reading about all kinds of mix ups that can occur in the comment section if a 'line' isn't put between the commentators... Well, there does look to be a line there now! Thankfully!

  3. I can SO identify with your quilt storm remains!! I am in that situation now! But have to catch up on everything else that was put aside while I have been sewing this past month!

  4. My mess is all cleaned up after the Hawk/Hunter quilt I posted on fb... Now I need to get ready to teach a class at the end of the month and then get back to having fun with my fabrics. Thanks for writing!

  5. That is called Creativity, not a mess. :)

    1. You know, I'm going to remember that. It's just the perfect thing to say if anyone comments about my house cleaning abilities!
