You can post the picture of my tornado stuck sewing room if you want to Zipit. Everyone needs a good eye opener as to what a cluttered sewing room looks like!

ok, check this out:

I've seen worse, but when you first glance at it
you have no where to rest your brain.
It does have great promise though.
I see lot's of goodies crammed in there.

You make me smile.  Your room is definitely no worse than mine.  You definitely have more "spread out" room than I do.  My sewing room used to be the guest room and probably is no larger than 10 x 12".  At times it feels like I can hardly turn around in it, but I'm just thrilled to have a dedicated room all of my own.  If I had more space, would only hoard more fabric and goodies anyhow.  Only time my room looks good is when I don't have a project going on!

that random photo I posted above ^^^
from FB...she was in her creative mode.
You can tell by all the stockings she was making and
hanging on the rack.
RIGHT NOW...mine is worse!
Yup, betcha don't believe me, but I was/am doing a major
move around and stacked furniture on furniture!
It REALLY  looks like a cyclone came through.
I'd show ya but while I was taking pictures my phone
went kaput!
It's charging now...
(
wonder how much stuff i can sling out the door before it's
revived? they'll think I'm a cleaning-wonder...
oh yeah, right after they think I'm the queen of
messmakers and pathetic
??? )

Brenda, that space does not look that bad.  Of course you're little and light on your feet, so you probably do a good job dodging the boxes.  Now that space Mousie posted....  I could not function.  I'd have to bulldoze it and start over.  That is how my basement is.  My new year's resolution is to go through it and do a major purge.  First the basement, then the garage and garage attic, then the barn!.

the majority of what your looking at is stuff I piled on
top of my cutting table.
It is big...let's see...I think it's 5' x 7'.
I could have made it smaller but I slide bins underneath.
I wanted to be able to clamp a quilt to the top to baste it.
Well, looks like I'm gonna have to clean up and put this
stuff away before that's gonna happen!
See, I did that "hat over the fence" thing on purpose.
Now I posted, I have to walk around to pick my hat up,
or in other words...i have to clean up so you won't think
this is one of mousie's cousins typing on her computer!

Oh Gee Mousie, I wouldn't fit in your space.   :-[   

I am still unpacking boxes today, so my room looks a little messy today.  I moved stuff to all the other rooms to make the room empty to replace the floor and slowly putting it back and retrieving things from all the other rooms.  Still hiding the stash under the tables.....

 ???  When I do get back to sewing, I'll drag it out from under the table and hunt for just the right fabric.
You live your life in moments....thanks for sharing in mine.

Okay, I'm really freaked out now.  There's no sewing going on in those messy rooms!!!  Maybe no floor space for walking, either. 

Mousie, my (also large, but not 5 x 7 I think) cutting table gets used for clamping and pinning layers, too, among many other things.  Right now, all 365 challenge stuff pushed to one long edge so I can use the rest of the table to work on the farm quilt (which is turning out to be a big PITA!)

I literally went in there one day and just started piling
stuff on the table so i could get some kind of momentum
going to downsize.
I think I succeeded. It sure needs downsizing now.
I'll get it sorted out and usable again and it won't be as
hard as you think.
Your really looking at different views of the table
so it looks like the whole room is chaos.
It's smack in the middle.
Just got to get the lead out.
I keep doing things in here.
We put a light up yesterday in the dining room.
Before that we were working on the skirting of the
house.
I've got to put Christmas away one day this week and
there's more  :D
Maybe I'll get out there before the week is over.

I know that, Mousie, and was not referring just to your clutter.  If I'm honest, I have seen pictures (not just on this thread) of so much clutter ... piled high and deep ... that it sets my teeth on edge, but the thing is, I can make them go away with just the click of my mouse.

oh, weezie  :) you didn't say anything that
bothered me.
I think I made this whole mess on purpose to
motivate myself.
No worries.
Let's face it:
Clean is clean (goood!)
and clutter is chaos and mind bending!  ???

Wow I'm itching to jump in and lend a hand sorting everyone's clutter.  Perhaps Weezie and I can take on the job between us - we're both a bit OCD.

I do get into a little bit of a mess when I'm working on a project but have to clear the decks in between or I just can't function.

Oh, Dee, if I could just do it mentally ... everyone's space would be reasonably neat!

If I were to take a picture right now of my big 3 x 6' table, you would not be able to tell that I recently cleared everything off of it in order to make farm quilt backing and then to pin baste the layers.   I then vacuumed the carpet, which was pretty well speckled with thread bits, cleaned the dusties out of 2 machines, changed thread colors, needles, etc. and then put everything back neatly on the big table (exactly in the same places as before) and the 365 parts back on the design wall.  However, I did buy more fabric (14 one-yard pieces) which arrived via US Postal Service a few days ago ... so actually there's even more on the table now than before the big clean-off.  I keep washing and pressing fabric and hanging it here, there and everywhere, using clothespins on clothes hangers ... perhaps I need someone to come sort my stuff.  I am especially proud that I made shelf space for a heavy sewing machine that I had had sitting on the floor for a long time, sort of out of the way but I still tripped over it occasionally ... but no more tripping over it now.

I've made a lot of progress in my playroom
since i made that mess  ;) .
I still have a table to put in place and lots of
downsizing to do though.
I just enjoy it all. It's my happy place  ;D .
