WIP Wednesday – Sewing Space Clean-up Version

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately and I haven’t been sewing but I really WANT to.  However, I don’t want to sew in this completely messed up, cluttered up space!


Stuff is EVERYWHERE.  On the back of my chair, on hubby’s chair, on the floor where I need to stand to press, all over the top of my cutting surface……..  It’s out of control.  I’ve been buying fabric for new existing/new/future projects, and I don’t know where to put it right now!  I have a fantastic double-pantry cupboard that’s 6′ high and one side is full of scrapbooking stuff that I haven’t used in years.  It’s time to admit I’m not going to and move it out so I can move fabric into that side as well.

Here’s the fabric side, so you get an idea of how much more space I’ll have if I can get the scrapbooking side cleaned out…


So although this week’s WIP Wednesday doesn’t seem sewing-related, it really is.  Because I can’t seem to sew with my space looking like this and have am starting to get my house in order again!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced. Pop on over and say HI!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

  1. We have the same issues with our scrapbooking stuff. I like to think that I am more of a scrapbook material collector. Your sewing space will get worse before it gets better. It is all part of the process of cleaning. Once you get it cleaned up, you will sew up a storm!!

      The Pink One offered to help me clean this morning….which is odd because she can’t seem to clean HER stuff! While the kids were getting up I figured I could get a few things put away, but ended up pressing for my Bee Blocks instead!
