a holding pattern



Twice a year, when I get home from Quilt Market, I do a major cleaning of my studio. It's a well-loved tradition--it's necessary after all the crazy, last minute project messes and it's good to have a fresh start for the next round of designing.

This Spring, for the first time in years, I'm missing Market. The timing just wasn't right for a variety of reasons. It's gonna be so hard to miss out on seeing some of my favorite people, but I'm looking forward to what's ahead.

So that means the tradition has to change a bit. While everyone else was finishing their last minute projects, I was painting my bathroom. While everyone else is getting ready to leave for Minneapolis, I'm getting ready to do a top-to-bottom clean up of the studio.

So today, everything came down. And I do mean everything. Shelves are bare...



All the little tidbits are off the bulletin board...



Lots of reorganizing to be done.



I'm ready for a bright, fresh new look. So knock on my door...I can't wait to show you!

When you are done painting your sewing room come do mine! It needs it so bad and I am such a bad painter. I'll cook for you!!! I did do a cleaning on my sewing room a while back. Tried to get rid of some of the clutter. I still need to do more but it feels great when you do it.

Is that a vintage door knocker? Darling!

Knocking------- I can't wait to see it! No doubt you will inspire me (yet again!!!). With my move coming up in July I will get a chance to re-invent my space (after reclaiming it) and I'm all about the peeping!

I love that feeling of a fresh start in a clean room. It is inspiring and it gets things going in the head and spirit. I'll miss the antics of you and Pam this time.
