W. I. P. Wursday (or lack thereof)

Well, it has been 2 weeks in a row with absolutely no sewing.  Here's why:

My craft room looks like a hurricane went through.  My craft room is actually a very small bedroom.  The room isn't even big enough to house a queen sized bed comfortably, but I have used it to store all of my quilting supplies AND all my mixed media art supplies.  All of that, and I don't have access to the closet in the room because it houses luggage and sports gear. 

As you can see, I have a lot of stuff.  This week, I am paring down the scrapbook supplies (how lucky for my sister-in-law).  The stack of scrapbook paper that I have decided I don't need is over a foot high.  WOW!  I haven't even begun to go through the non-paper stuff...

Here is the first little part that I organized and re-purposed from scrapbook to quilt storage.

On (most of) the horizontal shelves sits works in progress.  They are all at various stages and I plan on assessing and photographing each one when I am done organizing.  I am hoping that by posting this, I will be more likely to finish some of them.  In case you can't tell (because my iPhone took a crappy picture at 11:30 last night), there are over 20 unfinished projects on those shelves.  OMG!  The sad thing is that I know there are several more lurking in plastic ArtBin totes around the room.  I know of at least 4 that aren't on the shelves yet. 

Why did I choose now to start organizing?  Because my husband went to Canada for a week.  That means I can use every available surface in the house for a week to organize and sort with no complaints from the peanut gallery.

Anyway, that's my excuse for not sewing.
