The Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop – Year 8!

I always say “It’s hard to believe I’ve been hosting this blog hop this long”, but the truth is that I can believe it! My blog turned 16 years this February and I still love to write and share on my blog. This is the 8th year of the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop, and I’m pretty excited because I needed so badly to clean my studio.

Here’s the before picture…

I had been away on retreat, so my machine is in that rolling bag. I have just switched to a new scrap fabric “system” instead of that overflowing box under my table. It feels super chaotic, because it is.

Here’s that AFTER!

What a difference, mainly from two things. One, I folded down the leaf in the sewing table because my current projects don’t need it, which makes for lots more room. Second, that black trash bin is the new fabric scrap bin. I found myself constantly second guessing the scrap in the bin if I could SEE the scrap. Now they go in, and I do not care any longer what happens to them (meaning I’m not fishing them back out.) Every time the bin is full, it’s time to make easy pet beds for the shelter. (I’ll post my tutorial for that next week!)

One more thing. There’s a closet back there… And it’s a walk in, and I do find myself just throwing things in there to make them disappear from the main room. So I did some cleaning there too.

Left is before, right is after

I mean, at least I can see the floor now…. ha ha!
