A couple of weeks ago I decided to clean and organize my sewing room. In the interest of full disclosure, I must add that I have other hidey holes around the house for fabric so those areas were included in the cleaning and organizing. I knew it was time to get this done because it was beginning to feel like Ozzy Osbourbe was going off the rails on his crazy train in my sewing space! Yikes!
Here are the before photos:
Here’s the thing, sometimes being creative is messy! Luckily the Marie Kondo Tidying Up craze didn’t pass me by…
Ozzie, please meet Marie.
During this process, I condensed all fabric into the sewing room so I can see what I have to work with. No more hidey holes around the house! I sorted through all my fabric and neatly packed away the cuts and colors that, like Marie Kondo says, spark joy for me. The fabric and notions that no longer spark joy were packed up and sent over to the quilt guild for the Fabric and More sale later this spring. It’s an incredible feeling to know that I love everything in my sewing room. I can see all my WIPs, take them out, work on them, then put them back when I want to work on something else!
