Ready for action!

I'm not completely done with reorganizing/cleaning my sewing room, but at least I feel like I can finally get to some serious stash-busting! As you can see, my closet is overflowing with supplies and partially completed projects. It's time for me to get to work!

How did I accomplish this feat? I popped the A&E version of Pride & Prejudice into the DVD player and set mini goals for the 40-45 minutes between each round of exercise. When Carol came over after school, she moved the heavy objects for me. I have a book by Nancy Zieman titled 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew, which is my inspiration for breaking monumental tasks into do-able goals. Thank you, Nancy!

If you look at the shelving picture and focus on the corner shelf, you can see that I stole a framing idea from Sherry Pence. Sherry and Laura each sent me tatted pieces with sympathy cards when my dad passed away, and I wanted these special pieces to have a prominent place in my sewing room. Thank you Sherry and Laura! Your friendship means more to me than I can express!

Now, it's time to begin the stash-busting!


  1. U hav a lovely sewing room! My craft stuff sites in plastic crates around my bedroom!

  2. Thank you! My husband created this space for me five years ago. Before that I had everything in my bedroom! I think he got tired of me rummaging for supplies after he'd gone to bed.

  3. Wow, I love all the wood everywhere! Simply gorgeous! Your ambition is inspiring! And your friendship means such a great deal to me too!

    Big Hugs,

  4. OOOoooo Your space looks great!!! Oh I love the A&E P&P!!! My favorite movie ever!!! I've been wanting to watch it again soon too, I don't think you can ever see it too many times! LOL

  5. Wow! What a sewing room and what a feat of organizing. You are doing great. You are a good friend and I appreciate all of your encouragement and inspiration.

  6. I love your sewing room!

    Since you are off from work for a few more days, could you fly to Oregon and do that to our craft room??? With both of us working in there, it is a total disaster area! Jo :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
