All Cleaned Up

Whoo-hoo! It's such a good feeling to have the sewing room all cleaned up.

My house is generally cluttered and I'm the first to admit I'm not much of a housekeeper. But I find it hard to work in my sewing room when the space is cluttered and disorganized and stuff from previous projects is piled up everywhere. So not inspiring when it's like that.

I didn't take any "before" photos, but here are a couple of photos after the big clean-up. Now I can regroup and figure out what to work on next.

Ah, not stressful now. I can find everything I need, and I can work in there without having to move piles of stuff out of the way.

Since a clean sewing room is whoop-worthy, I'm linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday. Check out what everyone else is celebrating over there.


  1. This looks great! I always find a clean sewing area more inviting. Definitely worth cheering for.

  2. This is absolutely whoop-worthy - I agree that the more cluttered my sewing space, the less inspired I am to go in and make something.

  3. It looks great!!! I am the same way, a not so wonderful housekeeper, but I like to keep my sewing room organized.

  4. Sigh ... I'll never get there, but it looks great!

  5. Oh, to have such a neat and tidy sewing space!!!

  6. Oh it looks so nice and airy!! I love having spaces cleaned up.... you volunteering?? Ha ha

  7. Congrats on creating a clean slate. It's so much easier to work without the clutter.

  8. Always wonderful to have the cutting table cleared off, especially! Nice job.


So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
