One Project Down, Hundreds to Go

Okay, here's the sewing table, before and after.  It's not exactly purged, only straightened. But for now it works for me.  At least I can find my pin cushion, lol. (The one in the photo is Alizona's.)


That little set of plastic office drawers works great for thread and patterns, especially.  Patterns fit lying down sideways.  The tubs under the table are full of half-finished projects, prospective projects, remnants, and stuff that just might come in handy someday, like two old mattress pads.  They make great quilt padding, but how often do I do any quilting?  I did use some to fill a hot pad, and it turned out nice and thick. So how I can throw those away?  The funny thing about this project is that it only took about 15 minutes to do.  I'm sure I have a few other 15 minute projects around here, projects that have been waiting months for me to get to.... maybe I ought to join the Anti-Procrastination Challenge?

I do need to get to the purging.  My friend, Kristy, is having a garage sale tomorrow.  Think I could come up with a load in less than twenty-four hours?

And [Jesus] said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Luke 15:12


  1. Wow, nice transformation! I like the idea about using a mattress pad for pot holders - great idea. I'll try to remember that since we want to do some potholders for a charity/ministry idea we have.

  2. Hey, can we borrow that table for the garage sale?


    Just kidding

  3. A really nice job!! Makes it so much easier to sew now doesn't it. I really like it when there is a project that is DONE!

    I wanted you to know that its 22 degrees up here this morning. So go enjoy the sun shine!! Lynn Marie

  4. GREAT job, Sally!! Woo-hoo!! You did a fantabulous job, and I am proud of you. Doesn't a clean room make you want to go in there more and work? I'd be itching to get in there and sew now, if I had a place like that. Keep up the momentum!



  5. Me thinks that my sewing machine and serger are sitting on the same craft table as yours :) Yours is far cleaner now than mine...I haven't been able to clean much and it is the room that seems to catch all when mom is unable to organize.


  6. Your area looks so nice! I have to do the same things when I'm busy crafting. I also have a problem with books. *sigh* I need to get things organized with my books!

    God bless you - Julie
