12 STEP PROGRAM



Is there a 12 step program for Junk Rooms? That is what I am calling my computer/craft room. As you can see... Or do I need to go on Hoarders, just for this room!!! I just step inside the door and throw stuff on the desk or by the sewing machine. How can I possible sew with all that around me. I have decided that being The Queen Of Tubs, I would bring some in and try to sort and remove some of this stuff. My motto in the past has always been out of sight, out of mind.. But ....When I opened that door this morning, I know ya'll heard me screaming!!! I have a lot of stuff I have been putting on Ebay. I need to put that stuff in a tub. Call it Tub #1... #1 stuff to get rid of....

I found 2 great frames at Hobby Lobby yesterday. Both were on Clearance...

This frame was originally $108.50. I got it for $10.80! I could not believe it! I hope my Dad's Memorial Sampler fits in it.. That is, when I can get finished stitching it.



This 2nd one was originally $75.00. I got it for $7.50 !!! What deals!!! I have bought several frames in the past on clearance there. I just buy the frame and then I will stitch something later. I take the frame and stitched piece back in to them and they frame it for me. I am going to try and frame some pieces by myself. But these pieces I will take back to be framed....


Still stitching on that afghan and still coughing away with that bronchitis.. That stuff is hanging on like Flies to Fly paper. I am still taking my antibods.. Been over a week..


If you are grossed out by my craft room. I hope you will not stop following my blog!! please stay tuned... I will be cleaning it sometime this week, I promise !!! lol


till later.....

OH YOU ARE BRAVE. I don't have the guts to put a picture of my craft room up, or my dining room table( just my end) or my armour with all of my DMC/charts/fabric. Nope just can't show it. well my closest Stitching Sisters have seen inside the wrath but that's just coz they need a special colour and they all know who has every single colour, and then some....
I bow down to you April
I think I would need a 98 step program.
Be always in stitches.

Love those frames that you picked up. I'm going to have to check out my HL soon and see what I can find.

And yes, some intervention is needed here - Rubbermaid bins and maybe a bookcase. Is that a flip flop I see buried under something?:o)

Don't feel bad. Mine looks about the same. It just all seems to accumulate.

Wow, lucky you on the frames! They look like they'll be perfect for your stitching.

LOL at the craft room. My basement (when we had one in our old house) used to look like that. I'd fling myself across the door if anybody looked as if they wanted to go down there. Now, my college age daughter is a candidate for Hoarders. I think we all have those tendencies, though! Your craft room actaully looks a bit like nirvana. I need to put some stuff up on ebay, too. Ugh.

I use the the canvas bins you get at wally-world.Fabric, Fibers, beads and mystery items They really help tidy up the place. Also got some mesh file folders from tarjay to sort charts into. Helped so much. I ended up with 4 of those. Mags, samplers, smalls, and everything else.

If it makes you feel any better my craft room makes yours look pristine. :)
