A Clean Slate

I have 4 projects going...all of equal importance...and my sewing room was a MESS! My design wall is busy, as you can see.I could have shut the door for the Open House, but decided to do the "right" thing and not the "easy" thing...a lesson I preach here daily to my kids! My office/studio was put to a place of perfection! Forgive the blur.... What did I do with those projects that were all in progress???
My friend Niki made a shawl for me last year and gave it to me in this box....I LOVE this box! I even have the gorgeous turquoise and brown tissue paper! I keep thinking I will use it when I give a gift to someone, but I can never part with it. Soooo, I put my 3 projects in their various stages in the box!!Now I know I said I have 4 projects.....I went ahead and finished one up! I will show it to you when it is washed and all "crinkle-y"!
Now that the Open House is over, I can pull those other 3 projects out of the box and mess up my studio once again....as it should be!

Bren~ Is one of those projects possibly for DeNiece???? I can't wait to see the finished project. I am probably as excited as she is.

LOL, I'd forgotten about the box! It's perfect for your projects. We had such a nice visit with you, Kim, and your lovely family :)
Blessings,

I would have the same notion as you...I can't just close the door! I love that box too! (Anything b&w seems to strike my fancy these days!)

Now it's time you came and cleaned up my sewing mess. Is your cutting table short is it just the angle of the photo?

Hi Bren,
Your sewing room is great and I loved reading about you and your hubby renewing your blessed years. We just celebrated 35 years. It's great to be married to your best friend.
Keep Stitchen'
Bonnie
