Threaded Mess

True confession: I am an extremely. big. slob.

When it comes to sewing...

I tend to cut, piece, and trim with reckless abandon...
I dump my scraps in big cheese ball containers until they get so full that I'm forced to go through them and organize...
I toss pretty much everything in a pile...
I do keep my shelves and drawers fairly organized but once it's out of the drawer or off the shelf there's no telling where it will end up...
As messy as I am, I can usually find just about anything I'm looking for. In fact, I have a harder time finding things when I clean up because I forget where I put things for "safe keeping". I do eventually clean up when things start falling over or get in the way of whatever project I am working on.

All this is just further proof of why I consider myself a Threaded Mess...

Happy Quilting

Maybe it's the same with a lot of us quilters. That's creative chaos, one can't fight it :-)

Thanks for showing your sewing space! I love seeing other people's sewing spaces. Probably because I sew in my dining room and don't have a dedicated space for sewing right now.

Me, too. I'm such a messy crafter. I wouldn't have it any other way, though! And every now and then, I'll put things back and reorganize.
