Here are some of the before pictures:
I don't know why I let this mess pile up, because once I cleaned it, I started puttering around and finishing up a few 'loose ends' and getting ready to do some more work. I think sometimes I get overwhelmed by all there is to do, that I get paralyzed. But all it takes is a tiny step in the right direction and all sorts of good things happen.
To the left of my sewing nook is the design wall. I propped my batting encased blocking board in front of it. Not too pretty but it should work fine. Everyone has a pool noodle in their bedroom, don't they? It's for shipping my Poured Out 2 quilt to Sacred Threads, I'll roll the quilt around it (after I cover the foam with fabric).
Now to sit down and get to quilting! I think I'll share my now-cleaned space over at Nina Marie's Studio Spaces Blog Party!
