I haven't been spending much time in the sewing room lately. Mostly it's because work around the house and my husband's business has kept me hopping. But it's also because my sewing room is just an unholy mess.
Don't believe me? Here's a picture of just the sewing table.
I can't see more than a few square inches of the surface. I haven't even stapled the canvas cover down. And I'm coming to the realization that one of the roadblocks to my sewing creativity is this mound of mess on the table. There is simply no room for me to lay out cloth and pattern and actually create anything.
The piles of fabric on the left are for window treatments for the house. Haven't started 'em.
The rolls of white are patterns printed out to be sewing into garments. Haven't started 'em.
So where do I go from here?
I'm going to declare the month of June as "Rebooting the Mojo" month. I'm going to write down all the projects I have rattling around in my head and assign them a spot on the calendar. While I certainly won't take care of the backlog in one month, I'm sure I will make a big dent in the stack.
The familiar demon will arise: "I paid good money for that, and can use it for... something!" Well, it's time to put that demon to rest.
I hope to post every day during June, with progress reports and (hopefully) pictures of projects that I have been able to complete. Any ideas, suggestions or encouragements are greatly appreciated!
