I started with the worst corner - this is where I store my scraps and scrap batting. When I get busy, everything just get tossed in the corner until I have time to fold and put away the leftovers. Here is the before, and the after:
Yikes! Towers of leftover batting and fabric ready to fall over!
Much better now, leftovers are piled neatly and batting is folded and put away in it's bin, except for some small scraps that are easy to grab when I need a small piece for something.
The next area to tackle is the dresser. Again, random stuff is just piled on top of it - makes it hard to get to anything and is really unsightly!
Next I worked on the Design wall area:
Now to get the cutting board cleared off - both on top and underneath.
I put everything away, then organized the most urgent projects into piles so I can get to working on them:
Yay! I can see clean table space! Plus, as I work on those projects there will be more clear space, so hopefully I will be inspired to get them done in good time. Now that I've got everything cleaned up I'm ready to get to work and do some sewing - a good reward for the time spent cleaning up.
I'm linking up on Cheryl Sleboda's blog - She and some bloggy friends did a fun spring cleaning blog hop and she has started a link up on her blog for other bloggers to join in! I felt so much better seeing that mine is not the only hot mess sewing area around, so go ahead and check out all the other posts. I hope I can keep my room looking a bit better this month, but I can't promise anything! At least I hope I can get some of these piles of projects finished up.
What causes the most mess in your sewing room? I know that I just have too many projects going at once and it makes it hard to keep things neat and tidy. But I just can't see myself as a one project at a time kind of a person, so I will have to try a bit harder to keep things neat.
