One Week, One Thing - July 9

Well, July 4th saw me tackling the mighty mess in my sewing room.  I was a good girl; I didn't just shove it all in drawers... I actually cut down the scraps into pieces for my tiny hexagon quilt and sorted and put the rest away where it really belonged.  I dusted and swept and vacuumed and really, truly cleaned.  It took ALL DAY, but I got it done!  Doesn't this look so much better?
I found pens and pencils and scissors and other tools I use all the time buried underneath the mess of scraps.  It feels good to have everything back where it belongs.

Of course, the "clean" didn't last long.  I began cutting and sewing the next Marti & Me club quilt...
The goal this week is to get this quilt top finished and quilted...I'd better, because the meeting is next Monday!

And I swear to myself that I will do a better job of picking up after myself when I'm done.  But I also predict I'll have to spend New Year's doing it all over again, like I have for the past couple of years!  LOL!

The problem is you are never done! You have so many things going who has time to clean up ?? It's said that a messy desk is a sign of genius---I"m sure that applies to studios too--LOL

Yes, your workspace looks wonderful - it does feel good to get it all in the right spot!

The M&M sample looks good - can't wait to see it in person!
