Do You Think I Need To Clean Up?

It is finally Friday and I have painting to do and fabric shopping I want to do.  This week was a little long and I am glad the weekend is here.  I am going to leave you on this Friday with a picture of where the "Sewing Magic" happens in my house.

This is embarrassing.  If you dropped by my house you would not see this room...Disaster with a capital D.  You would only see the clean areas of the house.  (But let me know if you are dropping by so that I have some clean areas for you to see...Thanks!)  As you can see, the lighting sitch is quite fabulous...a bare bulb on the sewing table and a tiny lamp on the ironing board.  My cutting table is obviously covered.  The bulletin boards are sitting on the table instead of hanging on the wall.  The baskets in the corner are holding scraps of fabric...I hoard scraps.  Luckily you can't see to the left on the rug because there is a ginormous pile of stuff to take to the thrift store, a pile of clothes that need to be mended, and fabric from the thrift store.  I hope the piles don't converge...that would be sad.  Also, I don't think I have vacuumed the room in a while.  You would not believe the amount of thread all over the floor.  Mom if your reading this, I know you are shaking your head and thinking that you taught me better...You lost control of my messes a long time ago and I bet you are very thankful that I don't live with you any more.  Maybe, oh maybe I will get this cleaned up this weekend.  The chances are pretty slim.

Have a wonderful weekend!  If it is cold where you are, then stay inside with a hot cup of coffee and sew.  If it is warm (I would still stay in and sew), then get out and enjoy the sun.

  1. I got to click all three reactions!
    1. Read it (and I don't care what your house looks like)

    2. Looks good (thread and fabric envy)

    3. What Are You Thinking? (don't give things to the thrift store before you let me rummage through them, I'll probably end up buying your stuff. This saves me money and you a trip to the store.)
