For Your Eyes Only!!!!

it's the storm before the calm!!!!!

So, after admitting the other day that I suffer from Crafter's ADD these days, I thought I would divulge the storm before the calm. Over at Chelsea's blog which I found through Lila's blog (all in the family), she is looking for the messiest creative space for a contest she is hosting.

Now, honestly, my fabric shelves aren't looking too bad...


and there are some bare spots on the floor under my sewing table (I haven't had time to put away my new magazines).....

but then I decided to leave my black/white/red blocks where the scrap box runneth over to move onto another project....

...and so other scraps began appearing on my ironing board (which I lowered so that I could just swivel my rear end to iron while I paper pieced)...
(getting kinda hard to move the ironing board since stuff keeps getting caught on the board's legs!!!)


and goodness knows how I would find any room to cut on my cutting table....

(I have to leave that book open so I can refer to the directions on how to make a zippered pocket on the project that I cut out but haven't started sewing).....but I did set up another smaller cutting area on my sewing table so I didn't have to get up so much anyway (paper piecing does take a lot of cutting and pressing).


You can see at least two projects finished or in some state of assembly (yes, that is the sewing table!).....

and it is good thing that I am not planning to serge today...
Sugarbaby has decided to start sewing in my company, so I made a little space for her and then she proceeded to dump all the felt on my sewing table, so I just dumped back (it is hereditary... you get it from your kids, right?!)!!!
I have to admit that this is a little embarrassing to share with you all but I know you creative people can understand that when you get going there is no stopping the storm.


I do plan to show you the calm soon, when that storm is over!!!!! Just don't invite me over for a sewing session right now!!!!
