What I have been up to

I have been absent for a few days.  I was inspired (shamed) into having a clean up after reading a friend's post about rearranging and tidying.
This is what I am confronted with every day in my store room.
And this
and even this!
So for the last four days I have been sorting, throwing and rearranging.  My body is aching and every joint is painful and my arms and legs are bruised from lifting and moving, but I have achieved some sort of order.
I can even get to my cutting table!  and find what I am looking for
I spilt cleaner on the floor, but it will dry up.
there is still a little bit of work to do, but I am sooo glad I have finally done it.  Now I can actually get back to work with it not annoying me every day.  The cotton bag in the corner is full of yukky fabric I just can't bear to look at any more.
And you know the best thing?
Because I reorganised and consolidated quite a few things between this room and my studio, I was able to do this-
Create a design wall that is six foot high and hasn't got tables in front of it for my large pieces, which often get neglected because I have to put them away and get them out and can never look at them properly.
There are two here, a large one at top and a long skinny one on bottom.
Elizabeth, you will be happy to know that I recycled some  foam that was around a friend's new fridge to make a wall I can pin into!

So I am pretty happy with my clean up.
Now onto some work!

Happy creating!
