I realized I haven't posted in a while. I saw Em's blog post www.emsscrapbag.blogspot.com today and she asked what we were working on in our sewing room so I thought I would share. First of all Em has a motto - Creative clutter is better than tidy idleness. And I like that a lot. But my creative clutter got so out of hand that I needed to do a reorganization. First I bought new baskets for my fabrics. I like these, now I can see what fabrics I have, much easier than before



Thanks to my handy husband I now have shelves in the closet in my sewing room. It took a long time to take everything out of the closet and reorganize it and put it back.


I need to go through all my computer printouts of the tutorials and patterns that people have so generously shared and put them in this
Melanie www.jellybeanangel2.blogspot.com sent me this for Christmas and I love it. I love the stitching on it and I definitely love the gingham. It has a place of honor in my newly reorganized sewing room


I've cut out these for my Happy Chemo quilt that I am giving to Em for the Happy Chemo group !


I am also trying to finish up this quilt top for my son. One more border to sew on and then I can quilt it!

What wonderful reorganisation. My neglected sewing room is such a mess I can barely see the floor at the moment. I need a huge tidy up in there but haven't had the time. You have inspired me. Thanks.

Good luck with your son's quilt being finished and your new one.

What a good motto. I have to have a certain amount of uncluttered space to feel creative but it soon gets messed up!

Great way to organize and how nice of your husband to put in shelves. I know that is a big help. That book is so nice.
