Hey there!

I was supposed to put up an “after” link up so we could all see how well we’ve cleaned up our sewing spaces.

I didn’t forget. I just … um … didn’t get mine cleaned up yet. It’s close, though. Very close. Here’s what it’s looking like currently. Progress is definitely being made!

Look, my sewing desk finally made it into the room. And I found thread and hung it on the wall.

Things are finding homes on shelves, and most of the boxes are unpacked. I still have a few miscellaneous items to go, though.

I relocated a few more shelves for this corner from another room.

I bought some bed risers for my cutting table, though I think I might put it in the corner under the two high shelves and move my antique Singer to its place.

So you see, I have been tackling this project a little at a time. There have been other distractions, though. Tonight, hubs and I spent the entirety of the evening removing a door and reinstalling a new one. Why do home projects take 3 times longer than you anticipated?!

I also repainted the dining area of our eat-in kitchen. But I had “help”, which meant it actually took longer than it would have had the “help” been less helpful. Know what I mean?



So, how’s your clean-up going? You’re probably all finished, right? Neat and organized and ready to link up. I’ll make it happen this week, even if I have to shove those last 3 boxes in the back of my closet!

    Oh goodness, no. I’m not even painting as an excuse, and I’m no where near done. I say we need a good month to get things together. 😉

    Don’t feel bad, I haven’t gotten anywhere. However, I have gone over my “ideas” with the husband and we are going to start getting some supplies to accomplish what I want to do. I vote for the end of September to link up as well!

    I’m done! Yay! I didn’t have to unpack an entire studio, like you did, just clean it up and put things away! I posted couple of photos on my blog. Now I can work in there! Yay, yay yay! Your progress is amazing, esp with 2 little ones! I like how they :help”, they are really cute!

    I have actually cleared up my sewing table, which is already a huge success for me. The rest is still not looking too good and I’m afraid it’s going to take more than two weeks! You’re doing well! You’ve nearly done it!
