TTMT #401 – jewells68 – April 27, 2021 – Hogwarts Stairs Strike Again

Yes, I’ve been rearranging the Project Room AGAIN, lol. Slowly progressing to the ideal sewing room for me. Early Happy Birthday wishes to my awesomesauce BFF, Jennifer O, and a thank you to Mary’s Molly for the lovely gift she sent to my own Moxie. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope everyone has a crafty week!

  1. My room is basically never organized. I have basically given up trying that hard. I just rip it apart any way.

    Oh what I lovely gift for Moxie. Have fun trying it out.

    Happy Crafting

    1. It’s less about being organized and more about being functional. I need to be able to find what I need quickly. Since I won’t be working from home anymore, I’m going to have less time on my lunch break to do stuff, because I’ll need to clock out, come home, eat something, maybe have 20-30 minutes to do whatever and then back to work until 530. So I’ll mostly only have the weekends for sewing/crafts. The easier it is to be able to just sit and sew, the happier I will be.

  2. The Project of Doom, doomed my sewing room. It hasn’t been organized since I started that project. Maybe I’ll get it reorganized again.

    Moxie gift of glide thread is great.

    1. I’m nbot really organizing so much as making room for what I need in this room the most, so I can work on projects without having to clean and shift stuff around every weekend. I start back at the office this coming Monday, no more work from home. So all my crafting will be on the weekends, unless I take a day off here and there.

      1. When I was working full time, I liked to sew in the evening. Of course I would be up late and get up early.

        1. I have found that sewing on evenings after dinner on a work night, when my brain is tired, are when I make a lot of mistakes. I will, however, do things like press fabric for a project, or cut scraps with my Go! cutter, things that don’t require as much from my brain. Sometimes I’ll even clean up and get my space ready on a work evening. But I am a morning person. I am generally asleep by 9pm and wake up at about 5am every morning without an alarm, have done for years, and so I used to be most productive on weekdays when my daughter was away at school and I didn’t worry about waking her up with the noise of my sewing machine at 6 or 7am. So on the days she has an early shift, I also tend to go back there and get some sewing done, too. I will also request half-days of vacation where I don’t have to be at work until after lunch, and then I can shower and get ready as if going to work but then sew sew sew until lunchtime. Those are usually very productive days for me. Even on the weekends I tend to do most of my sewing in the morning when my brain is fresh.

          1. That’s what makes everyone unique. Knowing what works for you is great. I’m usually up until midnight. Do not like getting up at 5am.

  3. Hoping this will do the trick for getting everything where it needs to be for you to use it best! I think I’ve said it before, but you’ll get it there eventually.. it seems like every re-arrange smooths out another problem, so hopefully this will be the one! It definitely makes sense to NOT have to crawl under the machine so often for sure!

    It’s a shame they’re bringing you back to work in the office since it seemed like being a home worked well for you in lots of ways.

    1. It’s great for my mental and physical health. I’m sad it’s coming to an end.

      I’ll get there. Each change of furniture and equipment gets me a bit closer to my dream studio.

    1. I knew the only way to get that quilting frame in the middle of the room was going to be to get rid of some of the existing furniture, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Now that I am setting up a cricut craft space in the dining room, it made the decision easier. It would be awesome to have one big craft room, but it just isn’t an option at the moment, so I finally had to make a compromise, and split my stuff up.

  4. Thank you for the birthday wishes! *glomps*

    All the reasons you listed for moving your frame is why mine has to live in the garage. You’ll love being able to just walk around to the other side.

    What a sweet gift from Molly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Maybe at some point I can finish my garage and set up a whole studio in there. But I’m just glad to have come up with a way to be more comfortable in here.

      I know it was a pretty low key birthday compared to most years, but better celebrations are to come!

      It was so nice of Molly to welcome Moxie to the TTMT longarmers club, lol.

  5. I use the wire shelves for my paper-crafting supplies. I have lots of them. And I use the white “wood” block units for my Silhouette stuff. You’re really getting organized! You’ll get things where they work for you eventually. I keep moving stuff, but things just get easier each time.

    Molly says Moxie is very welcome, and it was her pleasure. Anything she or I can do for you two, just ask.
