This post could also be titled Where the Creative Mess Occurs.
Tu-Na Travels on the Quilt MN Loot posts will continue after this brief overview of my sewing space.
Melva at Melva Loves Scraps is hosting a linky party where you can see other quilter’s sewing spaces and quilting studios. I plan to check them all out to get some organizing and decorating ideas. You’re invited too.
Welcome to my Sewing/Quilting area. I’m so glad you came to visit.
I’ve read before that creative people are messy people. Well, then I must be the most creative person there is. I leave the cleaning until I’ve finished a project. I have several projects going on at one time.
But I did take a few minutes to tidy up as I knew you’d be visiting.
My quilting projects often flow out onto our pool table as it is the right size to lay out baby and crib size quilts. Quilting projects also flow onto our living room floor, dining room table, and kitchen table. A recent project had me overflowing onto all those areas.
So where’s my sewing machine set-up now? It’s upstairs on the kitchen table. When I have a large project to sew or when I have quilting help, I move my machine into a larger area.
I’m trying to convince my husband that we either need to move the pool table out so I can completely take over that room or build a studio. He says I just need to take time to clean up the spaces I have. Sigh.
What I Learned Today:
- Cleaning-up is necessary but still not fun.
- Finding creative storage solutions that fit tight spaces is difficult.
Question: Do you clean as you go or clean when you are finished with a project?
