You might remember that I once had two design walls . . one behind the longarm and the one next to the sewing machine. The one behind the longarm was mostly for blocks that were just waiting .. I liked it because I could get a long ways from it and look at the blocks. Then, one day, along came a kitten who tore down everything that could be torn down, including the design wall. Now that Boots has calmed down a bit, I’ve decided to add that design wall back but make it a bit more sturdy so I had to enlist the help of Vince. I explained (I hope) exactly what I want so that meant a trip to .. yes . . Home Depot.
We’re back and we’ve measured the wall and marked the wall and found the studs.
Next step . . wait a minute here!
The design wall may not be finished this evening at this rate!
I know what you’re thinking . . if my sewing room looked like that, I wouldn’t want to go in there either. It has become a dumping ground for things that didn’t fit in the house but needed to be in an air conditioned area so part of my time in the sewing room over the next few weeks or months (surely not years) will be spent cleaning, purging and organizing.
But for now, I’m going to try to get my helper back on his feet and working.

Ummmm, my sewing area does resemble part of yours, but I like my “happy chaos” and don’t anyone clean it up or I will not be able to find where things have gone to! Right now, I know pretty much where all projects and pieces are and all my seam rippers and clippers and scissors…so I don’t mess with what works!
Enjoy your mini-make over, Boots sure is!
I have to laugh at that last picture. Your helper looks quite comfortable to me. Who doesn’t love to take a nap with a kitty in your lap?

Looks like Boots has claimed your helper! Sounds like you’re getting the “itch” to sew more? I’m always amazed at how much you accomplish whether it be sewing or knitting. Hope you’re feeling lots better now.
Looks like Boots put your helper to sleep. A cat’s purr vibrates at the same frequency of an idling diesel engine, 26 cycles per second, looks like your helper was lulled to sleep by that little black and white engine.

We moved almost two years ago and I am stull purging, but also find some great quilts only half finished which is a treat. Another month should see me sewing regularly again. Lots of handwork completed at night, but miss those quilts.
Help! I’m trapped under a cat… 🙂
The cat made me do it! Clutter is the sign of a busy mind (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!).

Awwwwwwww! Such a precious picture of your “guys”! I wouldn’t have the heart to wake them up. LOL!

I am working on cleaning out my sewing room for two reasons: I was overwhelmed by “psychological” clutter…the pressure of all those started projects! so that I had trouble even figuring out what I wanted to work on. The other reason is that I’m starting to lose things (other than my mind). I have a box full of basting pins, plus tools to use them, that I cannot find (I would think I could hear it rattling), and yesterday, I can’t find a tool that I use frequently and could swear was right there! It’s so frustrating that a friend was telling me “Calmate…calmate” (Spanish for calm yourself down).
