I Could Have Sewed All Day!

O.M.G. I really am not into cleaning, and would vastly prefer to spend a TOTALLY OPEN DAY sewing. The only thing that tops that activity is spending time with my DGD. So, you might ask, why did I spend all day Sunday and all Monday morning cleaning out, purging, shelving, boxing, and cataloging things in my sewing studio? You know the answer: desperation.

Cutting table with bookshelves behind

I moved the cutting table orientation in the room so I can walk all the way around it now. And the bookshelf on the right in the above picture and the wire rack? Totally cleaned out and re-orged.

Book Shelf Closeup

Here is a bit of a close-up of the shelving area. Goodness. Lots.of.stuff.

Sewing Machine Storage

I am super excited to have this sewing machine storage area set up. There used to be a file cabinet in this area, which I moved next to my desk. Now all my sewing machines, pressing tools, and student projects are organized right in the studio entry area. Sweet!

Sewing Machine Tables

Not any structural change to the sewing table area – just super clean. Now by tomorrow….sigh.

Staging Table behind Sewing Machines

The view from the other side of the sewing table area, looking toward the back of the room. Clean from this side too!

Sewing Desk Area

The desk area is still a yet-to-be-organized area. Paperwork is not really my specialty, but at least I have a file drawer nearby which (hopefully) will help.

Behind Sewing Desk Area

This view behind my desk is stacked mostly with projects that are in various stages of completion or mending/re-doing projects. I feel about those projects the same way I do about scrubbing toilets. They may never get completed, but I WILL clean up and organize them donate them to the Goodwill.

Staging Table Closeup

This closeup is another “longed for” area in the sewing studio. Even tho this table stacked with “ready to sew” or “ready to cut out” projects may look horrendous to you, with a quick pull to the right I have a photo corner. White walls and natural light to help produce better shots. Yes, more work is needed. but if I had actually sewed yesterday the stacks on this table would be smaller!

Happy sewing!
