Could you work on this cutting table? Seriously? Yesterday I was working on a little Valentine quilt. If you look real close you can see it. There - in the middle of the mess. I did not have a New Year's resolution for a "studio re-do" but I did have a sudden awakening ... this place REALLY needs to be tidied up.
OK - It really needs a complete overhaul. The whole space looks this bad ... maybe worse (?).
And after several hours ... voila! Isn't this sooo much better! I can actually cut something out and not lose all the pieces or worse ... and I have done it ... cut something by mistake because it was under what I was working on. The bags of scraps? I did throw away a few teeny pieces and the rest got sorted out and stored.
Here's where I stored my strips and scraps. This dresser has been in our garage for almost 2 years. It belonged to my MIL. Yesterday my cute husband and son-in-law moved it to my studio and my "big board" ironing board fits perfectly on top. We all win! Husband has a spot to put the new snowblower and I have lots more drawer/storage space. Son-in-law ... he got a bag of gingerbread cookies to take home and share with the kids.
I can't show the pictures of the rest of the sewing room because I don't have any "after" shots. There isn't an "after" yet. But - there will be. Small steps.
