A weeks work.

Well actually I didn't take a week. I took a couple of days to get stuff organized. And you can see I still have some problem areas on either end of the table, but overall it's tons better. TONS. I can actually cut on the mat there, instead of in the bathroom or on the kitchen table. And I can pop that Go! Baby on there and use it as well. The rick rack/trim pile to the left of photo oh-so-conveniently cut off is a problem that needs addressing, as are all the cute things at the other end that are piled up waiting for dispersal around the house.

Fortunately for me you can't see the floor... there are still bags and baskets of stuff there, but I've pared that way down as well. That's when I discovered I have a bit of a problem. I tend to buy things with something or someone in mind, then tuck them away behind the curtain still in the bag and then promptly forget about them. Here are a few of the votives I found. I have a ton of these here and there around the house, which is rather funny, since I don't ever burn candles. I guess I just like that vintage silvered mercury glass look.



Looks like I can get back to work! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo

I think we all have a space where its like the wizard..."Don't look behind the curtain" in my case its the closet of the sewing room and the corner between bookcase and dresser, thats where all the bags live at my house!

Why are you up at 4:51 am? You should be sleeping after all that adventure!

God bless you. I love what you are accomplishing with your pretty space.
I am sitting here in my "studio"-office-dumping zone, and even though I have made great strides in getting things in shape here, I am reaching the point where I am ready to succumb to the futility of it all.
I totally relate to your issues, and somehow just knowing I am not alone gives me courage and inspiration to carry on! Maybe I will even find my cutting table... it must be around here somewhere!

Good Girl !!!! At least you've cleared a space .... I just keep walking over stuff .... ugh !! I need a major declutter and organize day/week/month/ YEAR!!! but I'm too overwhelmed and lazy to start ... so I will probably just keep walking over stuff and shoving stuff aside so I can get to my desk, computer, sewing machine, clean socks and underwear, car keys, cats' litter box, fabric stash, and emergency chocolate fix.

Hugs, Heidi

I try not to get too concerned with the stuff in my sewing room. I keep the rest of the house presentable, and .....after all..the sewing room is mine! I do like to clean up after each project.

It will be wonderful when you're finished.

Congrats on being able to see the cutting mat! This is inspiring. My stuff pile is behind the door which is not a smart place because pretty soon I'll have to squeak through a tiny little opening. Ugh.

I love your sewing room and all the treasures. Keeping a sewing room clean is a full time job. I use mine for wrapping Christmas presents and every December it looks like a wrapping paper explosion!

Pam, I am new to your blog and just LOVE it! I looked at it all the way back to March 2, 2010! Can you possibly tell me the name of the fabric that is on your blog for that date?

Love your little studio, mine is a work in progress.
I also suffer from out of sight, out of mind syndrome. By the time I find it I either can't remember why I bought it or the creative moment has passed and I'm off on another misadventure!
What is the best way to organize fabric?

Cutting in the bathroom? it must be a big one?!

I do love the feeling of after Christmas cleaning!

Looks so inviting. It is also nice to know you don't live in a sterile and boring sewing studio :-) You're AWESOME!

Although you call it a few weeks of work, it could take me ages doing something like that, you are really talented.
