cleaning quilty stuff is not exactly doing quilty stuff

Sunday was a very relaxing day, slept in, puttered around, mosied over to my son's, had a wonderful visit and meal. Came home and decided the messy corner of my sewing room was no longer tolerable. After many hours of sorting, shifting, cleaning, and clearing-it looks much better. I am happier just glancing over there. So, the only quilting that went on was my relaxing hand quilting on the baby quilt. I think I only have two rows left now. I resisted staying up late to keep quilting on it-I am sure you can relate how you get in that groove and just do not want to stop! It is supposed to hit 92 F today...oh my. We have a/c so if it gets too unbearable, a flip of the switch and life is much cooler inside.
My to do list quilty wise for the week:
1. put a sleeve on the quilt I brought home from my sister-and get it back to her.
2. put fabric loops on a comforter, turning it into a wall hanging for the baby to be's room.
3. work on the wonky village.
That seems do-able, doesn't it? Especially as I am up somewhat earlier and can get started after another cup of coffee or two. And, I did hunt down the perfect color of fabric for the sleeve-after giving up on the right shade of yellow/gold/orange, then looking for the right shade of blue...nope, finally found a shade of green that worked. Thank goodness for a varied stash!

Congratulations on the tidy studio!
We haven't been up into the "hot" temps yet. How about iced tea and hand-stitching this afternoo?
Keep cool ~ Jeanne

Sometimes my favorite thing to do in my craft/quilt room is to clean and organize it! I get reminded of what I have and such a great feeling of accomplishment when everything is in its place!

Posting at 7 a.m. you DEFINITELY are up early...LOL. So glad to hear you had a great day. And your plans for today sound good to me. I have some "stuff" to do, but also must "attach" the last of those stars so I can get the quilt together.
I was Portland was suppose to hit the 90's today, stay cool!

One of my goals for my week of vacation coming up is to re-sort all my fabrics by color - congrats on getting yours cleaned up!

It's terrible when the mess gets out of control isn't it? I cleaned up my room to have my Bee group there last Friday - of course I left it until the last minute and spent all day Thursday cleaning.

I know that groove- often, when I get in it and push late into the night, Imake my worst mistakes! I'm having to learn to ignore the pull of the groove after, say, 10pm!

Cleaning sewing stuff is quilty enough for me some days :-) Gives room for creative thoughts and room to sew and quilt ! I could use a taste of organizing in my corner too ! Thanks for the inspiration ;-)
