Welcome to My Mess

I have deadlines quickly approaching. I went looking for the Ninnie Nines quilt top that needs to be quilted, like now. There it is in the basket under the sideboard, tucked behind the design wall. OK, the backing fabric is there, along with some solid white (that I thought was lost), and backings for three other tops. Why is that paper bag of batik scraps under there?


I haven't found my bowl full of basting safety pins yet. Not in this pile on the piano bench.

Not in this pile of crap on and under the table behind the loveseat.

Not in this jumble of mess on the dining room table.


Which means it's down here somewhere. Yikes!
(Why is that football toy box in the middle of my stuff?)


Keeping it real, folks!

Added 2:20pm: Found the pins!  Remember that bag of batik scraps under the sideboard? Under the scraps, I found the bowl of pins, machine quilting gloves, and all sorts of goodies. Yay!

You are just a little bit more organized than I am. What a glorious mess. But we make beautiful quilts in that mess. Don't fix it if it ain't broken.

Yup. I look for stuff that way, too! Every once in a while, I have to get it all under control, but usually it's pretty messy. Oh, well. Such is life.

Is that the best that you can do?? :) My room is usually a large collection of piles that I shuffle around until there's too many and then I put a few away. :)

I can totally relate to the sewing mess! Thanks for keeping it real.

Thanks for "keeping it real"! Sometimes I think I am the only person in the world with a messy house!
