I plead GUILTY!

Dear Mishii, do not rearrange. Purge.
I so rarely need to purge. I’m not one to keep things “just in case”. Clutter makes me anxious so I don’t have it. I rearranged and will see if I like the new view.
Having Pita work in my space makes me jittery. He has no issues with clutter. I spend the first 10 minutes after getting home picking up scissors, seam rippers, markers, chalk, and other sundry items and putting them away. He leaves a trail of stuff wherever he goes. Why fold the leftover batting and put it in the leftover batting bin when you can just leave it where it drops? Argh
Oh, dear, the messy roommate problem. LOL
Can't help you there.
I don’t really understand it at all. He says after 30 years I should be used to it. I’ve tried explaining that expecting and accepting are not the same thing. I have a hard time working amidst chaos. Digging through piles of fabric, looking hither and yon for my scissors, etc. He has no issues at all stepping over or around things or spending an inordinate amount of time searching for tools.
We have done a significant amount of home improvement projects over the years so you would think we would have figured out how to blend our styles. You would be wrong. It seems quilting is no different than laying tile. At least I have learned to just clean up and put things where they belong as soon as I enter a room/garage. It does cut down on the yelling a bit. And if whatever tool isn’t in the tool chest where it belongs, I just ask him to get it for me while I go do something else. I manage to usually not start yelling until the third time now. Progress!
Would he have an aversion to pink scissors?
If you bought yourself pink scissors would he avoid them like the plague?
Just an idea ....
Your tools, my tools kind of scenario might work or then again it might not ...
September 1st, so I decided I should probably get started on DD's llama quilt rather than sewing scraps. So I headed over to Gibbson's because I'm going to need 5 yds of background and 8 FQ worth of browns and grays for the bodies. I have nothing like that in my stash, though plenty for the bright blankets. I found $8 & $9 yd for Moda. Not too bad. I still have embellishment to do on 2 blocks plus applique the garland on my Christmas quilt. But lately I've been missing my sewing machine, so the llamas might as well get going. I want to make it full size for her new full size bed. So that's a fair number of llamas and looking at the pattern it's going to take a while.
Ummmm…. His tools, my tools didn’t work in my house!
when we married, the wonderful people held a shower for both the men and women to attend. And then came up with the brilliant idea of a toolbox and then the men bought him tools. Then a few ladies got together and gave me a small hammer and a few tools that they decorated with fancy flowers and such!
my tools were kept in the house in my Drawer. But that didn’t stop Hubby from using them. One day I couldn’t find my hammer….asked if he borrowed it, and he confessed he broke it! He has looked for a small light one ever since…although it could never replace the special one made just for me!
sigh…..doesn’t work here.
I haven’t got a lot done on my Dear Jane project, but I did complete hand sewing on 3 blocks. I also prepped 2 blocks for English pping. They seem too difficult to piece, only thing is, it’s lots of small pieces. But I figured I’d give it a try!
I will let you know….
here are the finished blocks.
