sewing room

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Well, today I have decided I am going to focus on getting my new sewing room all organized. I have not done any sewing since Christmas Day! That is way too long! But I don't want to start pulling stuff out yet until I know that when I am finished with it, it will have a place to return to. I want to have a room where I can find what I want when I need it! This is the first time in a very, very long time that all my sewing stuff can be in the same place!

In saying all of this, this project will help keep me out of the kitchen, making it easier to stay focused on my weight loss!!

    Well, my project for yesterday to organize my sewing room did not get very far. Other people needed my attention and then I was asked to move some boxes to make some room for others in my house to play a game. So, I ended up doing some sorting of way too much piddly stuff. Tomorrow I will get to work in my sewing room if I have to go and lock myself in!

    Hats off to those of you who have given up your sewing space for a time so others have a place to live. I know that can't be easy.

    Great idea, for several reasons. Firstly, as you say, it will keep you out of the kitchen, next, even sorting out, refolding, and packing away fabrics, threads, etc., is exercise, and lastly, if you manage to get it all sorted and arranged as you imagine it is going to look, you will go to bed feeling really satisfied with your day. If I go to bed at night feeling that way, I wake the next morning ready to tackle whatever life throws at me.

    I know you will have many happy hours working on your patchwork projects in a beautifully arranged room, able to access everything easily, and I'll be looking forward to seeing future projects displayed in your photos and maybe even written about in blogs.

    I did have my sewing room set up almost perfectly, but a close friend's daughter had to move home unexpectedly and had nowhere to store her furniture. My once-was sewing room is now housing her furniture and my sewing table, etc., is squeezed into my second bedroom, along with two wardrobes (not mine), my over-large computer desk and filing cabinet, printer table, the large recliner my elderly cat loves sleeping in during winter... guess only small sewing projects are going to be achieved till I can finally reclaim my room. I was happy to be able to help, but with each piece of furniture we put into the room, my future projects were mentally crossed of my to-do list.

    I have to wait until my granddaughter and her babies move out to get my sewing room back...right now it is so piled up that I can barely see my machine...
