Ongoing state of my sewing room

 my messy sewing room aka "the guest room"

 I try to be organized. I really do. But somehow it always turns out like this. Amazingly though, I can morph this mess into a very hospitable guest room in something like twenty minutes.

Scraps from a fellow quilter. Pretty, but not sure what to do with them.

Frankenstein Medallion

Current recurring UFO. I call this my Frankenstein Medallion. I really love the Oak Leaf Reel block, but I only had it in me to make one. An applique-er I am not. Other random oddball blocks. Leftover strips from jelly roll. I'm thinking I might add some more HSTs along the top and bottom. Who knows. Maybe I'll just go ahead with the brown print border and call it a day.

My very first foray into the leader/ender-type thing:

See all the groovy things I learn from reading other people's blogs?

I have no idea where this is going.

Anyway, here's my tip for the day:

You perceive your house to be dirtier/messier than it really is.
Others perceive it to be cleaner/neater than it really is.
Now, go sew.


  1. Your tip has me laughing. I always thought it was the other way around but I went sewing anyway. I am impressed that you can turn your sewing space into a serviceable guest room so quickly. long does it take you to go the other way? That's were I find I mess myself up - by scrambling up what I am working on.

    1. I realize I should have posted a picture of the "guest room" mode, but alas that's not gonna happen until I actually have guests! So look for that in about a month. And it seems like it takes merely moments for it to become a mess again.
