Wednesday’s Words

You know what – I just don’t have any words this morning.  I’ve been thinking and thinking, but no words of wit, wisdom or wonderment are coming to mind!  I look at my sewing space, and decide it’s no wonder no sewing is getting done – it’s a mess!001
I know I can’t work in an untidy environment, so why do I let it get this way?
I tell myself to clean it up, then find something else to do!
So maybe I just need some words for myself – knuckle down, buckle down, just do it – do it – do it!
Happy tidy spaces!     Blessings, Peg


  1. I had my space all neat and tidy for Christmas visitors and it is right back to where it was again. More snow again today. No sun again today. I am grateful just to be here, but I could use some encouraging words too. Think I will go cook some comfort food. Mac and cheese should do it. LOL

  2. you should see my area .. hopefully you can do all the knuckling and buckling that you need.

  3. ah once you do get it cleaned up you will feel more creative. I have pledge myself to clean up after every project, all the scraps, threads, rulers put away and then start again with a clean slate. Frustrating at times but worth it when I start on something new...which I did today. good luck

  4. Gosh, Peg, your space is emaculate compared to my office. There are knitting books and papers everywhere. I have about two years of filing to catch up on and who knows how many half-done pattern graphs. Last year someone was inspired by it to give me a "Mistress of the Messy Desk" mug for Christmas. I think it may have been a hint....
