Don't worry, Sandy.  I'm with you.  I need to find a permanent spot for mine also.

I have been very uninspired to sew, well I want to but when I go look at the sewing setup in a room that is now packed full of boxes that need to be sorted and repacked I really lose all desire to sit and be creative. Yesterday I took the fold up table, machine and some projects upstairs to the area that I used to sew. Of late it has had paperwork in piles all over the room so I cleaned all of that up and put in boxes. Now I have a table that looks out to the mountain again (where I used to sew when I lived here full time, 4 years ago now). Hopefully I will be able to do some fun sewing again.

What I have been doing every day is cleaning and sorting boxes and such. I have made progress but have not turned the corner to really see the end. I figure if I just slog thru it a little every day I will get there. Today's plan is sorting all the fabric gifted to me a couple of weeks ago that is in a pile of bags and takes up lots of room. Also want to go thru some boxes that have books because I know I will not be keeping too many.

I do hope to report some actual sewing progress soon.

I for one will be happy to see your sewing progress because you always create neat stuff.

Hope that happens soon so you will feel creative and uplifted again.  But, keep at that sorting and tossing job.  You will feel good when it is done.

Just to tell you how much I don't want to go into the room and sort thru boxes...............so far today, I cleaned the bedroom, vaccumed the upstairs even the walls and baseboards, cleaned the master bathroom with all the mirrors and such. Still trying to avoid those boxes. I am just gonna suck it up soon and go do 4 boxes of books and sort some fabric from that pile I was gifted.

Lol, I love how she says I gave her homework - like I MADE her!

i did give her options - make kits to bring back, make tops, or whatever.  And there is no deadline.  If Mishii ever gets to spend time at home and not work, she will work on some of them.

Books aren't really that difficult to sort through and since you know you are getting rid of most, it should be easy.  Just don't stop to read one.wink

Going through the fabric may give you some inspiration to actually sew.  Hope you got there yesterday.

I'm not working on anything right now, but I did buy a LOT of 1800's and shirting fat quarters from a person on Etsy. They just came. Very fast shipping. Got to keep the economy going!!

Finally found the mojo to finish these two quilts, and now all the beds in my home are quilt supplied.  The first one I called "Rainbows" and quilted quotes about rainbows in the solid squares.  The second one I called "Roy G. Biv" and doodle  quilted things a child might draw in the solid blocks.  Theses look square but the are not, they are not quite twin size as they were made for the day bed and trundle under it in the "grandkids room.

Those are absolutely super-duper quilts for beds in the grandkids' room, just wonderful for the kids to enjoy.
