I've been happily sorting my sewing room since Christmas. It was a real mess with stuff piled up everywhere and a little path through the middle. I emptied the whole room out so I could clean it and then have been decluttering & sorting before I put things back in.
I re-organised the shelves and storage and I love it! Now it's finally easy to see and find what I need. Heres a few pics:
I also started Rhododendron Trail - Bonnies annual mystery quilt. I've got clue #1 done:
I've also been working on parts of other clues. My goal is to enjoy my sewing & not push myself to meet deadlines anymore so I'm just sewing along at my own pace. Heres where I'm up to this morning:
I'm about half way through decluttering the room and I've been watching the sewing room Declutter Challenge videos to keep me motivated.
I've found sewing & decluttering to be a really good distraction at the moment as the covid news here isn't good so I'm escaping into my sewing. Omicron is spreading rapidly, it's difficult to access a test and the health system is struggling. We have shortages of meat & chicken and over half my grocery order was unavailable this week, mostly fresh veggies & fruit. One of my friends is sick with Covid at the moment. We had done a good job in Australia the last two years but it's well and truly here now. So I'm keeping busy and we're staying home. I'm glad we keep a well stocked pantry and a full freezer.
I also sorted out my unfinished projects and have made a list which I've created a page for. I am so grateful I will now finally have the time to sit and sew each day. Are you having a January declutter?
