QUICK!!! Get the Swiffers!! The "dust bunnies" rather the "dust kangaroos" are running wild in the sewing room! I must admit, I left the door open for this to happen. Working on projects then all of a sudden another idea comes to mind and I must react to it...well things get put in this corner, on that shelf and before you know it- all hell has broke loose! LOL So now that I am feeling somewhat better, I am putting things back in their place and collecting all the "kangaroos" to get ready for the next set of projects that I have been preparing.
"You prepare projects?" Well, yes I do. When it is time to "play" I like to have the project already cut and a plan in place before I start. How else do you think that I can do so many things in a week or at one time? I might add that I do have the ability to be able to do three or more things at one time. No, really I can, I tested it this week LOL Most people I know can do two. I was dusting the floors/machines, while contemplating the start of yet another project, AND 2 embroidery machines were going! Sweep, sweep, think, change thread, sweep, change thread, think, sweep, sweep....answer phone, check Facebook, change thread... phew I was tired when those two hours were done LOL But I did get rid of quite a few kangaroos and embroidered 10 t-shirts; put the patterns away and got the next project at a stage that is ready for finishing...YES! As well I put more "scraps" in one of the scrap totes. Damn that thing never goes down!!
By next week sometime I should have the sewing room back to "my" normal! Yes, I said "my normal" as not every single thing will be put away. Somethings must stay close at hand (the scrap tote for one) as I use them very regular and having to take them out of their hiding space and that wastes valuable time when in the sewing room. Although I sew all summer long, this summer will not be as productive. I have some painting I want to get done upstairs (the living area for DH LOL) and that will be done over a couple of weeks... not a young as I was where I could do it all in one or two days LOL The kitchen is getting a major face lift with new paint on ceiling and walls; new light fixtures and then a new border (once the paint cures). I have two dressers I want to repaint and the kitchen table to re-stain and topcoat....so the sewing will be done in small spots of time. Having those projects ready and waiting will make the completion of them run smoothly and give me a needed break when I put down the paint brush/roller.
Pictures? Yikes - there aren't any this time. Bummer, huh? But I will post some pics of my progress as I work on those other projects while I'm in the painting mode... deal?
Till the next time... keep your fingers nimble!!
