Stressed by the Mess II

In a previous post, I mentioned the need to organize my sewing space.  Yesterday, I just decided to jump in and get busy!  I pulled everything off the closet shelves and just threw it all into a great big pile in the middle of the floor.  Talk about stuff!


My sewing buddy, Norma, a Bearded Collie, wasn’t sure what to make of all that stuff on the floor so she decided to mind her own business off to the side…wise girl!


I found a “few” dust bunnies.  Hmmm, I really think they are Norma fur mixed with miscellaneous threads from days gone by.


After an hour or two, this is what my closet looks like.  Much better, but I need to organize my scraps!  I’ll save that for another post!


Norma has now reclaimed her spot under my cutting table!  She is no longer stressed by the mess in the middle of the floor.

    Wow I can really see the concern and stress on Norma’s face, she needs to calm down!!! (Ha!) You did a great job organizing! Oh and not to put pressure on you, but you could have saved those Norma dust-bunnies for some special felting or perhaps fiber spinning project 😉

    Love seeing the before and after! My sewing stash has shrunk over the years, but this is similar to what my room used to look like when we had a bigger house and more space for my fabric addiction. 🙂 Glad to have discovered your blog! You can check out mine at if you are interested
