Chaos or .....Creativity?




Okay, first let me state that I love that Shelby my daughter sews! I have a sewing room downstairs but it is small and I really don't like her using it. So for the past few weeks we have been sewing at the kitchen table, (since I don't cook, we don't need it to eat at it) but, she has decided to move her fabric out there also. UGH! this is what I came home to, deep breathe! The green thing on the floor is a sewing table I bought her (that my darling husband is taking his sweet time on!) Now, I know the "where women create" will probably want to come have a photo shoot here (please call first!). My dream is to have a studio like Monica at Happy Zombie or Ann at Bunny Hill, but until Shelby gets a handle on this it ain't gonna happen! We are moving her to the basemnet as we speak....Wish me luck!!

I vote creativity, since that is exactly what my craft room looks like at all time. I saw your post on my lastest craft...thanks...and the quilt ideas are in my brain, but that is where they stay, too much ADD to focus and create a new pattern...we are working on it! :)

Go check out Kim (of bitty bits and pieces) for organizational ideas. She just redid her sewing room, and it made me want to clean up mine! I think it's wonderful that you have family that will sew with you. Great memories and I'm sure a lot of creativity going on.

Wait, its not supposed to look like that? Lucky you, lucky Shelby. Actually, double lucky you. 820??? Give me a break! So jealous!

Really, an 820? You've got to be kidding.

Definately creativity:) My dining and living rooms looked like that for years until I was lucky enough to have my dream studio built. I wanted to say that I love your blog and hearing about your store. I live in Cleveland, Ohio so it will have to be a planned road trip before I get to see it in person, but in the meantime thank you for sharing and your inspiration. btw I found you thru Heather Bailey's blogsite.
