I've done it!
Sorted my sewing room out.
But it took a lot longer than the one day
that I had set aside for it :(
I wasn't sure whether to post these pics,
'cos it will show the world,
just how much of a sewing room sloth
I had become.
these are actually some of the less slothy photos,
'cos the others were just too shameful :(
... but even so, it's pretty bad...
... badder still!!
... it's not good, ay!
Not good at all :(
I am hanging my head in shame as I write this.
This is part way through the process,
it looks worse than ever,
but there really was some degree
I do remember the child coming into the room
about this stage,
backing out again,
I think he was genuinely petrified
I was going to ask him to stay and help!!!
then the sun came out,
and three days later
here it is ...
I found things I had forgotten about,
like my little button mannequin which I love...
...and all my needles in one place,
instead of here, there and everywhere...
Have to say,
it will be novelty
to be able to sew,
without first having to clear a space...
You know what the best thing was,
about the cleaning,
It's not that I can now see all my
''can't live without''
... and it's not that I felt
an incredible sense of
that I now have a fabulously tidy room.
the best thing was ...
I know what you are thinking,
any excuse :)
But it's a fact,
I had to have it to maintain energy levels,
and my sanity :)
that's the little story
of how the sorriest looking sewing room
is now looking
much much much betterer:)
See you :)
P.S. I don't want to use it now,
in case I make a mess:)
