I always start out a sewing project (or string of projects) by cleaning and organizing my sewing space. I am a neat freak and like everything just so. Somehow, by the time said project is finished, my room tends to look like this:
Yikes! I can't seem to manage to STAY organized while sewing. I lose my seam ripper every 5 minutes because it keeps rolling under the sewing machine or off of the table entirely. Someone needs to fashion a wearable seam ripper! I suppose one with a flat handle would work too. Not as much fun though. I lose my hand sewing needles often as well. Not such a good thing considering my sewing room is carpeted and I don't wear shoes in the house. To keep things interesting, I never organize things the same way. I always have to take into account my growing pile of scraps. When is a scrap of fabric or interfacing too small to be usable? Anyways, this week's cause of my unsightly mess are a few bags, a wristlet, and some awesome mini wallets. These have all gone to Artini in Anniston in hopes of selling them. I am somewhat neglecting the online shop for the time being, but hope to remedy that soon!
