I was sewing away on a quilting project the other night. I was also watching Hoarders at the same time. After watching and sewing for a while, I glanced around my sewing room.
It made me panic.
I wonder if I can sew my way out???
Fortunately, I’m on a finishing kick. I have one quilt that is ready to be put together and one that just needs borders.
And there’s this. See this bunch of little pieces!
They’re turning into more Dresden Plates!
I don’t have a pattern for this, so I’ve been pulling fabrics to get ideas. There may be some machine embroidery involved. There may be other blocks included. I just don’t know yet. I’ll get the Dresden plates finished first. I don’t even know how many I’ll end up with! I do enjoy this creative process, but it’s not making my sewing room look any better!
I think I have the borders figured out for this quilt! Thanks to some tips from blog readers, I ordered something that I think will work.
The knitting just had to make its debut, because it matches so well. The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Peru. I can’t remember what the pattern is right now. More on that later. It is so soft and cushy! I love this yarn!!!
And now for my tip for the day.
Don’t sleep with your teeth clenched. You wake up with a colossal headache!!!
So, does anyone have any sewing room organization tips for me? Or are you like me, working on about fifty things at once? Or should I just keep sewing, and not let the chaos in my sewing room bother me?
I’m going to go take some Advil!
