Quilt Room Neglect

Since I haven't blogged or quilted very much so far this year (going to change, I promise!), my quilt room has become very neglected. In fact I've avoided going into it at all expense, but today was the day. My daughter was home sick from school...(having a nap on the couch with her vomit bowl!)

which meant I needed to stay home from work, and well, what better day to clean my quilt room up?! I had no idea where to start, so I did the same thing I tell my kids...just bend over and pick up the first thing you touch. Whaddya know, it actually worked! It went from this...ugh...

to this...

Yay! Sofia hasn't been using her little sewing are too much lately, so she kindly said I could set up my laptop and drawing tablet on her desk.

I filled up 3 large bags full of trash...

And filled a large box with fabric to get rid of... (if anyone local wants it, come and get it - sorry I'm not mailing it anywhere - it's too big! There's nothing fancy in it - mostly older chain store calico type fabrics)

I also put my bobbins into the handy dandy bobbin holder I bought in my last post.

At last, I feel like quilting again!

Sorry to hear that your daughter has been sick. I hope she feels better soon.
You've done a great job tidying up your quilt room. Would you like to come to my place and clean up my craft corner? :D

I so need to do this as well. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow morning. Yep, dealing with the first thing that I touch in my studio.

Your wall of mini quilts looks great in your studio!

I hope your daughter gets over her sick-bug soon.

Yep, I need to do this too....... again:-) How come we drop stuff to the floor? You can't even see the floor in my sewing room at the moment! bags, boxes and "stuff" everywhere. I like your "pick up the first thing" tactic.... I used to use the "just choose 5 things and deal with them" method but one at a time would be much easier!

Hope your little one cheers up soon,
