Several of the online groups that I belong to have issued a challenge to all members – let’s clean up our sewing rooms so we can sew up a storm this year.
Guess I needed to accept and get busy, eh?
I will applique this quilt from the back, like in reverse applique. I want to use this technique in a few different projects, and this design is simple enough for it to be a good practice piece.
So, after I got home from the school this afternoon, I bit the bullet, so to speak. I had hauled two large chest out into the spare room the other day, which at least gave me a bit of room to move.
I was able to cut the background fabric for my value quilt.
The drawers haven’t been sorted and organized yet, but at least the top is done. My fat quarters are where I can find them, my projects are close at hand, the space is open to move the glass-front cabinet so I will have room to set up my quilting frame in a few weeks. I know that then a few more things will have to leave – like the ironing board into the hallway, if I need to do some sewing.
At least it’s a start. And I feel so much better. It is so unsettling to have a messy sewing room.
