I've been feeling a little - okay a LOT - stuck lately. I had a burst of energy when working on the Spicing Up the Kitchen swap but then....um.....hmmmmm.
It's not that I don't have a million projects waiting to be started. It's not like I don't have an INSANE amount of fabric staring at me, taunting me, daring me to do something creative. And it's not like I don't find inspiration all around.
What I don't have is a lot of time. Two little ones need constant care and attention and, apparently, FOOD. My three year old is eating like a lumberjack these days so I'm sure she'll be outgrowing all her clothes and shooting up another inch or two any minute now.
And I don't want to sound all whiny and ungrateful - because I know that I am terribly fortunate to have my own creative space - but my sewing area was a total pigsty. Some people can be very creative amidst chaos. And while I don't mind a certain level of mess while I'm in throes of something, I don't work well when the chaos seems never-ending.
So... over the weekend my hubs took the kiddos for a hike in the woods and I got busy. The whole space was reorganized and spruced up. Furniture was moved. A lot of stuff was *gasp*folded and put away. A lot of stuff was set aside to donate. And yes, a lot of stuff found it's way into a huge garbage bag.
You can see that my sewing area shares a room with our guest bed.
