The big sewing room clean up - days 3 and 4.

First thing I want to thank Vicky and Fitzy for their daily emails nagging me to put in my 30 minutes. I'm not sure I'd have done anything Friday night or tonight if I hadn't know I'd have to admit to these ladies what a slug I'd been. :-) So here's where I stand now.

First thing. Yesterday I didn't get much done. Didn't feel good plus everytime I sat down I had this to contend with.Just look at that sweet face. Could YOU have slung it down to go clean? I DON'T THINK SO!!!!! But during the 30 minutes or so George DIDN'T sleep on me yesterday I managed to clear the rest of the junk from in front of the stash cabinets. So now I can get in them to put away some of that fabric that's laying all over the place. But I ain't showing the inside just yet cause it's REALLY messy in there! Let me get the outside if the room clean first THEN I'll start straightening and organizing my stash.

Tonights project was the sewing table. I did do a little of this yesterday. Cleared all the stuff from the bottom shelf so I could put my sewing machine there when I'm using the top for cutting. I finished it up tonight after supper. Now I'm ready to sew again which makes Nancy a HAPPY gal. :-)

All that's left now is THIS unholy mess! And baring illness it should all be gone by the weekend. I plan to work on it for 5 minutes everytime I go into the sewing room until it's done.

I have about an hour before bedtime so I'm off to the sewing room to bond with my sewing machine. AFTER working on that corner for 5 minutes that is. :-)

You really are making a good job of it! And if kitties stop you from cleaning, I need to get me one!! LOL
My quiliting has been interupted by attempts to get the back deck and the back yard cleaned up- every bit as overwhelming as your sewing room for me.

Good job! It is getting there. It is hard to work with that sweet furry face wanting attention!

You are getting there. Slow and steady wins the race! I have been trying to work on little areas a few minutes at a time too!

Fiona said...

Nancy, I'm impressed. You must be a whiz to get so much done so quickly.

Morah said...

In the words of a close friend of mine " You GO girl!" Good job!

Wendy said...

A little bit at a time gets the job done, even if it's just 5 min. I've been cleaning and it really feels good.

Nancy, after looking at the before photos, you are really coming a long way. Could you do a before and after picture in the one posting....that way we can see how well you are progressing!
You will love sewing in an organised room! Now if only i had some extra money to buy some shares in the company you suggested! :)

WoW!! It is amazing and so are you!! I wish I had a sewing room, *covet* as mine is the living room. It is such a nice room when there is no sewing "stuff" in it, but then I am not as happy so I guess it is a trade off! Keep up the good work, you are an inspiration to us all!!
