We interrupt this regularly scheduled sewing time....

TO CLEAN THIS MESS!!!!
I mean REALLY.....don't you feel EMBARRASSED just by LOOKING at this??? I know I am, but I figured if I put it "out" there for everyone to see, it would motivate me to stop and CLEAN, STRAIGHTEN, ORGANIZE.....SOMETHING.....ANYTHING!!!! The picture above is what I see every time I walk into my sewing room!! How can you be motivated by this??
And THIS......
looks like Joann's, Hobby Lobby, AND Hancock Fabric THREW UP in here!!!
This is my cutting table......see anywhere that I can actually lay out a piece of fabric TO cut??
These are my craft baskets that my awesome husband constructed for me!!
Look underneath.....Everything just gets dropped to the floor and forgotten!!
The gray chair with the hole in the seat is supposed to be re-covered and entered into Random Charm's Flickr pool....someday!
Well, now that you have gotten to know the CLUTTERED MESS that is me, I am off to clean....if I don't get side tracked with more sewing projects!! :D Until later....

Yeah, that's about what mine looks like. Imagine my horror when I had to have a client come in for a fitting last week. She's coming back tonight and the mess is worse rather than better.

WOW! Thanks for making me feel a bit better about my mess today ;-)

Since I am using our spare bedroom for sewing, I have to straighten up at least once a week to make it look half way decent. But, I also tend to cut and throw, displace, etc.
Maybe, you will find some forgotten treasures while cleaning. And I don't mean like crackers your kids dropped somewhere, but rather fabrics you forgot about...

I love the photos! :) I sew and craft on my kitchen table...at least you have a door!

Chelle said...

Hehe! You crack me up, hon!

All of my craftiness gets to be done at the kitchen table...ha...Leo said our next house we will for sure have my own room--he gets tired by looking at my mess while I'm crafting :)

Jennifer said...

Yes that looks familiar =) Now off to cleaning up MY mess.

Don't forget to show the after pics! Mine gets in an uproar too while working on a project [or three] - I have to clean up or there's no room to make the next one!

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one with a craft room that looks like that!

LOL - Wow - you have a job ahead of you... but you're not alone! If I had a bigger space it would look like that too! ;) Good luck - can't wait to see the after pictures!

I'm with Beatrix, you made me feel better about my house! I was just complaining that I couldn't keep up with housecleaning with the baby and school in session, etc. My, my, my! Get that fabric picked up so you can get back to sewing! I think you should get the kids involved in sorting...consider it a lesson in colors! LOL
It is a great big sewing space though! Lucky you!
Happy cleaning. I want to see the after pics too!

Hi, I ran across your blog through google alert. Your sewing room looks just about like my own. In fact, it's expanding into other rooms of the house. Thanks for the smile.

You're right...it needed a bit of work! :)
