Year of the PIGS - 3/9

I'm a little late posting this, but here goes.  The topic for this week is if our sewing area is in a separate room or combined and if it's messy or tidy/organized.

My sewing and fabric are in one of our spare bedrooms.  My quilting frame is in the main bedroom.  I normally am very organized and like things tidy but with all the fabric/projects I've accumulated it's getting pretty messy.  I think this is one of the reasons that I haven't been sewing much because it drives me crazy to have everything lying all over the place, but I don't have anywhere else to go with them.

Here are some pictures of my sewing area:

Spare bed with Washington Medallion draped on it.
The colored rubbermaids have PIGS in them (and Fireworks in Prairie Park draped on top of that).
The white rubbermaid tower underneath has scraps that have been cut to size.
The wood cabinet has yardage fabric...oh and look my GO cutter sitting in front...still in the box.

This is the left side of the closet with PIGS on the left and top and FQs in the wire tower.

Here is a dresser filled with more PIGS.  On top are "in progress" projects Delightful, Welcome to My Pad, Pick 'N Choose and finished pillowcases and shawl.

Here is the mess on top of my bookcase. 
Several PIGs and other stuff from previous projects that I haven't put away. 

Since I took these (embarrassing) pictures, I did clean up a little bit.  I cleaned off the top of the dresser and placed my GO! cutter and dies in the corner.  I also folded some fabric on the right side of the closet to make some space for some FQ bundles which were under my sewing table.

I think I could probably get more rubbermaids to put projects in so they're not all sitting out.  That may help me feel more motivated to sew.

LOL - I cleaned up a bit AFTER my photos, too! Got interrupted by having to go to MIL's for dinner- hoping to get my motivation back to finish straightening!

I had cleaned up before my pics because I had to put my vaca stuff away. :)

Love your space!! Not get in there and get busy!
