Shhhh! Don’t say it too loud but my desire to sew might be returning! I’ve thought this before and it didn’t last so I’m not getting my hopes up. One deterrent for me is all the clutter and junk in the sewing room so this weekend I’ve been cleaning. I have a very long way to go but the cutting table is clean and around the sewing machine is clean.
The floor is vacuumed. The slip cover on the sofa is washed, dried and back on the sofa. I took about 4 bags of trash.
Every time I open either the fabric closet door or the quilt closet door, Boots makes a dash to get where he surely knows I don’t want him to be. The sewing room may be full of cat hair but I don’t want it on my fabric.
There’s just too much stuff. The sewing room has become a dumping ground. The sofa that doesn’t fit in the house needs to go but it’s a fairly comfortable sleeper and who knows . . we might need it some day. The 3 year old recliner that I don’t like . . it needs to go. I didn’t like it in the house and I don’t like it any better in the sewing room. The breakfast room table and four chairs that I love doesn’t fit in the house . . that doesn’t need to be in the sewing room but surely some day I’ll have a breakfast room again. I told Vince that 10 things have to go every week. If we don’t use 10 things out of the sewing room, then something gets donated or trashed. One thing can be a jar of jelly or it can be a tub of yarn but a lot of stuff has to go out of the sewing room.
This surely should go but when I picked it up, it started playing . . how can I get rid of this part of the mobile from when Chad was a baby . . 29 years ago?
Maybe the first thing I should take out of the sewing room is this book . . take it to the house and read it cover to cover . . several times!
