So the first picture shows my cutting table aka the breakfast table. We used to actually sit and eat at this table. That was before I decided I wanted to start an online quilt store. My hubby really doesn't like the cutting mat as a permanent fixture. I should move it each day but then I think why bother. I just have to put it back. My trusty iron and ironing board now reside right next to the table. I haven't put the ironing board up in months.
|I left the Sonic cup in the picture because I love Sonic! I'm a Diet Dr. Pepper-aholic.|
Next up is where I do all my piecing. I use the fold up tables from Wal-Mart. They're inexpensive and work pretty good but it's impossible to sew at full speed with these tables. If I go too fast the table bounces up and down and I can't see anything! Not a good plan.
This is where things get a bit scary. My table is always cluttered up. Even if I clean it up it doesn't take long to look like this again! I can't explain it...I have clutter problems! You can see my Pfaff and Babylock in the picture! I love them both!
Next up...Roscoe, my Gammill. He's my trusty long arm that my dad found for me in Phoenix. Dad even packed it up and hauled it to me in the back of his truck! What a great dad!
|Thread every where!|
This window comes in very handy for Roscoe's accessory storage. Notice there is a trash can...it's just not used for thread! More cones of thread, rulers, templates, bobbins, etc. I even sit here if I get stumped or just need a break. I'm fighting two bulging discs right now so sitting seems to happen more than usual. I had 8 shots in my back on Friday. I'm hoping that helps and I can bypass surgery.
Oh look, batting scraps stuffed in the corner. I would like to say my scraps are dwindling because I've been using them up. Check out my review of the heat press batting tape. I really love this stuff! My unopened packs of batting are under my bed. And I'm not taking a picture of that!
|Another look at my shelves!|
|More shelves. Don't you love the bright California Dreamin collection on the bottom shelf!|
You'll notice soccer cleats in this picture. It's soccer season! We've only lost one game so far...Go Lightning! And I love to store all my packing supplies on the top of these shelves. It keeps it off the floor!
|One more close up Roscoe just for fun!|
That's my messy sewing space. I guess it's a good thing I can find everything I need. I usually feel lost and I can't find anything after I clean up.
Hopefully I'm not the only messy quilter out there. I like to think I'm just a little disorganized but who am I kidding....I'm messy. I don't like to clean so I avoid it if I can.
That's all for now! Let me know what you think. I hope there are some other messy people out there!
I almost forgot...Happy Halloween!
