It’s the second day of September. Even now that my children are grown, I think of September as the beginning of a new school year. Time for fall clean-up; time to get organized. A fresh start.
For me, it’s the perfect time to clean up my sewing room. That’s going to be my UFO challenge for September. I know, it’s not technically a UFO. But it’s a priority and it will create space and efficiency and peace in my world. Well, I don’t know if it will be that dramatic but I hope so!
The last few days I’ve walked into that space looking for a project to finish, continue, or start. I have so many options pulling at me that I just turn around and walk back out the door. Overwhelmed. Disorganized. Cluttered. That’s how I feel when I walk in my sewing room.
The following photos were taken a few weeks ago. This is where I come clean. I sew and quilt in chaos. Some people work better that way. I’m used to it, but I wonder if I’ll be able to find anything once it’s all tidy!
Something needs to change. I need to purge. I need to organize. I need to prioritize. Thank you September! It’s a good time to start. What are you working on this month?
One last thing. I just saw that Craftsy is having an amazing sale on all of their classes. Now through Sunday, classes are $19.99 or less. It’s a great time to learn something new!
Have a wonderful weekend!
