Why is it that when you are trying to clean and straighten, you actually make more of a mess?  This area was cleared and minimalized - now harbors a disarray.  Half will be put in their new home and the other half is headed out the door.

All of that came out of this corner to make for a new slate.  I really wanted to move my sewing upstairs into a bedroom that is as large at this down stairs room.  BUT with still the need for care of my Mom  and a reminder that I need to limit those stairs (a wee slip and slide with no injuries), I have come up with a plan B - or is it Z?

  But this mess is getting sorted thru and half will be joining that other half to fit in it's new space.  I have used part of this huge central hall (total drafty waste of space) for many years as my stash storage.  Once this is cleared it will become a small bedroom for a little more comfort for myself as Mom's care heightens.

Some things will go upstairs, but not items I need on hand or use frequently.  Hopefully all this disarray will aid in the new year's plans.


Hopefully I will be ready to reveal the 'grand plan' with CARLA'S end of the year HOP.

Sewingly Yours,



  1. I've got my fingers crossed for you Sharon...
    Merry Christmas xox

  2. Good luck with the transitions. Be careful on those stairs.

  3. Good luck with all your changes. A daunting task for sure

  4. One of the reasons I haven't cleared out a bedroom upstairs full of my stuff (not all quilt related) is the amount of work it takes and the lack of space for interim sorting storage. I'm sure you'd rather be stitching, but the reorg will be worth it in the end.

  5. I’ve considered moving my sewing room too. Seeing what you’re doing makes me want to think again.

  6. Sortinv takes time and always seems more messy than helpful at some stages. I am sure it will get easier soon. Take care on the stairs.

  7. I would like to clear out much of my unnecessary stuff as well, but I need to wait till I get a new hip first. In 3 months. Hard to sit still, but that is where I am.
