The Tale of Two Halves
Well, I have not sewn since I finished my May Bag of the Month, the Poolside Tote, on May 3, 6 days ago. That may not sound very long, but to someone that sews everyday, it feels like a long time. After reading about everyone Spring cleaning and decluttering, I felt like it was a good time to revamp my sewing room. I didn't take any before pictures, but the room that I am currently sewing in was my former work office. I wasn't sure if I was going back to work when I left my job 2 years ago, so I kept everything. I moved my sewing things in on top of everything else along with a 6 foot table that I kept my machines, etc on. I don't know what creativity looks like in your house but mine is pretty messy. I was so busy for awhile that I didn't straighten up between projects. I couldn't take it anymore.
Here is the half that is done. Yay! It is going to help me be more efficient. The 6 foot table doesn't even have to come back in! I will have so much more room.
I still have a few things that need to come in on this half but not before I sweep and scrub the rug.
Unfortunately, the other half looks like this!
Everything that I haven't decided about is here. All of the desk drawers are cleaned out but the 2 top skinny desk drawers. The dining room table is full of what must come back to the desk. The plan is to finish cleaning today and scrubbing the rug tomorrow.
The real question is, how can I stop here??? Hopefully, I can go room to room to freshen each room while still finding time to sew. This was definitely the room with the most work. It should only get easier....
