Never enough space




There is never enough space. I have a new sewing machine arriving in two weeks and I have to rearrange my studio space. I am very fortunate to have "studio" space, before taking over the lower level of our house I was in a spare bedroom. But now I am making space for yet another necessary tool. I am going through all my rubber maid drawers and tossing out stuff I haven't touched in over two years. It is always hard for me to get rid of things, I always think I will get to that project, or how much I love that fabric, or I will need to use that paper or tool someday. But in reality I need to cleanse. This is very hard.
At the same time I am trying to wrap Christmas presents and get them mailed out, work on a quilt for the spring shows, and take my mother shopping. It is a very busy time in my studio space.

There is NEVER enough space! I'm just so glad to see your space looks like mine. Now I feel normal.

Too bad you don't have enough time you could sell your stuff you don't want any more in groupings from your blog!
I hope you enjoy your new machine.

What kind of machine are you getting and what makes it an improvement over the one you have?

I have the same question, Frieda -- what kind of machine did you buy and why? (Inquiring minds want to know.) And you make me feel SOOOO much better by posting a picture of a working studio -- mine looks the same way, only smaller!

I totally understand your hesitance to rid yourself of fabric. I remember, for the most part, where I bought it and why I bought it and it's hard to part with it. There's anxiety involved with purging but I always feel relieved once it's done.
