Sewing desk mess

My mess
I took this photo yesterday thinking that today I would clear the sewing desk because I couldn't possibly be creative in this messy space. This morning I had forgotten all about that resolve and my desk still looks like this. Sort of. Since yesterday I have been to the patchwork shop and bought some fabric to finish off the Kate Spain Good Fortune quilt you see so prominently on the desk. (I dreamt about how I would finish it off last night. I guess that's the thoughts my head were full of when I woke up!) So now there is even more fabric on the desk. Oh. And I accidently bought a new project while I was there too and that is sprinkled liberally over the desk now. So liberally in fact that you can see very little of the Kate Spain project. When I bought the fabric for the new project I did think that I wouldn't touch it until I had finished the one on the desk, but I was already planning out the new project on the drive home. Once I got home I did a couple of chores and then looked at my fabric some more and then BAM! I was hit with inspiration and the determination to start my new project. (That particular inspiration did require me to go back to the shop and purchase more fabric, which I did.) So I've started a new project today! (So much for my assessment yesterday that what I really needed was to finish something!) Photos to follow.

Oh. And there really is no such thing as a sewing desk too messy to create on. If you are ever in that situation, what you really need is a new project!

I’d come to recognize with you on this. Which is not something I typically do! I really like reading a post that will make people think.

I built myself a table for sewing and quilting that fits my machine perfectly and gives me a flat, smooth surface to work on and I just love it!If you can't.

It can't be avoided to be that messy once in a while.
