Time to Reorganize

Every year between Christmas and New Year’s I take a break from sewing to reorganize my area.  Except for this year – well, sort of.  I’m reorganizing my area but I just have too many last minute projects that I want to complete before Season 6 of Project QUILTING begins to take a complete break in sewing.  My amazing husband is helping me with this task which EXTREMELY helpful as I may have a hard time focusing. 

My plan – sew a little, clean/organize a little.  I have until Sunday to have the major renovations done …


To keep me honest – I’m posting some ‘before’ pictures.  You all need to hound me to show you my ‘after’ pictures so I keep at it!


I was going to edit them … but … why bother?!


Yes – that’s a punching bag.


Just a few obstructions when I look at my design wall …



I have some work to do!  See you around!

Are you cleaning up your workspace too!?  Please share links to pictures and we’ll all help keep each other honest!


  1. Looks a lot like my sewing space did a few days ago. Is it bad that I filled 4 trash bags with actual trash to take out of the space? How does that even happen? I also discovered that I'm almost completely out of batting. I have no idea how I ended up with less than a yard on my roll, but it's better to know now that mid-challenge week. Though, I have to admit to discovering this as I was attempting to baste a quilt. I hope my lqs has a spare roll I can buy. And I'm not brave enough to take before photos of my space. It was COMPLETELY awful.

  2. Yeah, but is that a vat of the good hard cider?

  3. OMG! Can't wait to see the after. That is keeping it real for sure. Do you like the ball chair?

  4. Started "organizing" 01/01/13-finished today! Getting control of the UFO's was critical for me. Finally under control and I vow to keep it that way!

  5. Thank you for posting your pictures. I thought I was the only one with a space like this. Sounds like you get a whole lot more done in yours than I do in mine. Mine is such a mess that I don't even want to go in there. My husband tends to make things worse when he goes in there and I get frustrated and just think, "forget it!"

  7. Wow Kim, thanks for sharing! I just organized my space and the whole top of my sewing table is visible. I packed away all but 1 sewing machine and I am currently committed to finishing all those started projects that "just" need finishing. I am intrigued mostly with the punching ball in the corner!!! Can't wait to see the remake on the room, Good luck!!
