I actually had a panic moment today when I realized it was Wednesday already and time to show my worktable. And since I’m putting it out there and showing you the real me, I thought I would show you more than the worktable. I’m also going to show you to the right of it, and underneath, and so as not to make it jealous I’m going to show you my desk.
Maybe there are others who are also brave enough to share what their workspaces look like today?
Deep breath. Going in.
This is to the left side. You can see that even my cutting table (although folded up) is stacked. The plastic tub that contains the Christmas Woolens pattern and has the red toile box stacked on top is the container I’m using right now to hold the new starts and Summer Soiree stitching stash mentioned in Part 1 of my crafting plans. And no, Annette, I still haven’t covered my little ironing board.
This photo shows the right side. The 3 zipper pouches are my patriotic, Halloween, and “other,” cross stitch designs (I say other because I can’t remember what I sorted into that pouch right now), that are waiting for their own chart holder to be labeled for my shelves. The stuff in front of it, on the tabletop, just needs to be put away. There’s also a chain maille bracelet project there
Then there’s underneath. The black drawer unit is actually most of my organized (gasp) quilting fabrics. The two blue plastic buckets to the right of that contain completely kitted cross stitch items and WIPs. In front of them, in the Hobby Lobby bags, is craft supplies for a couple of tree skirts and a basket that contains piddly things I need to find a home for.
Last photo of that side of the room is “THE STACK.” It deserves all caps. It takes up a lot of real estate both in my room and in my mental calmness. THE STACK is made up of 4 boxes of items that I’ve decided I no longer love and need to get rid of (except for the clear sewing machine table). These will be the items I offer up on my blog before putting them out there in internet land.
Okay, that was actually quite easy! It’s hitting the “publish” button that’s going to be the hardest part. I will say that once I started breaking it down I realized that the majority of it is sorted, it just needs to be put away.
I’m headed to Vegas bright and early tomorrow morning. I have started pulling things out to take with me but they need to be organized into my suitcase and tote. I have a manicure appointment and a couple of errands, and a mountain of laundry to do when I get home, so there won’t be much organizing of the craft room over the next several days. I do hope there are some progress photos next Wednesday though.
