Sewing room intervention

This last week was another week wasted on the computer.  If I could make a living off the internet, I would be ecstatic and rich.  I think I have seen every quilting blog in the universe the last few days.  I have a lot more ideas for projects I'd love to start including a scruffy quilt, raw edge circle quilt, disappearing nine patch quilt, squares askew and the list goes on and on.... but what about the ones I have already started?  This is my problem.... my sewing room....

It is very hard to get motivated when your sewing room looks like this.
You can see the start of organizing by the piles of project ideas on the table lol

What I need is some serious shelving and organizers and a place to put all the other "non sewing" stuff.  What do you do with all of your sewing supplies/fabric? help please! lol

Molly Monkey Pattern

When I was blog stalking hopping today I came across this cute as a button  Molly Monkey Pattern over at MMMCRAFTS that I would love to make for my 2 grandbabies.  It doesn't look "that" hard lol  What do you think?

Last night I was thinking about what I would write about today.  And the thing that comes to the forefront is quilts. Quilts. Quilts. Quilts.  I have a whole room totally dedicated to making quilts. Well, except for the guitar cases, teddy bear display, extra toilet paper etc etc... being stored in there too. lol  But it is still called the "sewing room".  Do I sew?  Do I quilt? NO!   I have a "problem".  I am a procrastinator!  The best actually :)  My friend Kathy sent me a quote she found that reminded her of me, "Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off" Ellen Degeneres.  Good one.  I want to quilt, I dream of quilting, I look at thousands of others quilts.  So what will help me start to quilt? Maybe my new blog will help and then I can have feedback on what you think.  Also, maybe I can get others to start quilting.  I hear from a lot of people that they would love to quilt but are afraid.  It is really not THAT hard if you take it step by step.  So here goes my journey.  The quilt above was made in a quilting class called the Stained Glass Star Quilt.

And here it begins....

If anyone knows me, they know I like to collect things; hobbies mostly. Yes, I am a collector of hobbies. I love to try anything creative. Scrapbooking, tole painting, stamping, quilting, sewing, decorating, jewelry making, polymer clay, knitting, crocheting, plastic canvas (yes I admit it) lol and many many more. So why not start a blog. My very own blog. Where maybe people will come on a daily basis (like I do) and read about my crafting adventures. It's worth a try :)
