Results of yesterday's 6.5 hours of cleaning and clearing....

I was too ashamed to take a before of the playroom or the sewing room. Trust me.... this is so much better. Just picture paper and toys all over the floor, on the table and every surface that was in there! I still have work to do...there are kids things that I need to finish sorting and find a place for or get rid of, and of course the quilts and my pictures will need to be hung up in my office. Yes, the flag will come down and be replaced with my newest quilt finish. The recliner will be put right next to where the garbage is... My back was not up to moving it in last night with Greg's help. Much better today though so it will move in later this afternoon before the kids go to soccer practice.

This is the photo of the quilting area..... there is a floor! Still could use lots of sorting and organizing in there but at least I feel like I can go sew in there now. The printer is also now in my office area so I can easily print out things like my 1857 quilt blocks and my Inklingo printing on fabric.

Oh boy, that wall could use a day of sorting and refolding. The bins in the corner also were stuffed with all the fabrics from the floor..... some day they will get sorted into colors, I hope!

Not to shabby for a long day of work.


  1. Looks like you have a great office space! YAY! The sewing area is always a work in progress - if it's too clean, you aren't creating! ~Jeanne

  2. Isn't it funny how we can see progress, but then after looking at pictures, there is always more to do? I took everything off my walls and my space looks better, but it needs a good cleaning.

  3. It feels so good to do a day of sorting. Hopefully it will be much easier to find what you need now.

  4. Hooray! for progress. Especially, when working on TWO spaces at once!!

  5. I totally empathize. My room looked like this before I got my cabinets. It's so nice now to be able to sort through fabric and put it back in the cupboard. Happy sorting and sewing.
