Rainy Day Wednesday....

Trying not to let the wet cold weather get me down since my plans for today mostly involved being inside anyway.... I have a customers quilt to finish quilting and then IMMEDIATELY after that I am going to clean my sewing room. I can barely turn around in it now and it has to be cleaned. Check out these never before seen photos:
"So you see imagination needs moodling- 
long inefficient, happy, idling, dawdling and puttering"
- Brenda Ueland

"Sometimes you have to create what you want to be a part of"
-Geri Weitzman
"An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come"- Victor Hugo
"Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it- whatsoever it is!"- Osho

"To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it a little more dance to it." - Osho
So those quotes basically explain this disaster- 
I was moodling-a-plenty, trying to create things to beautify the life I so love, I couldn't resist the onslaught of ideas that charged through me and I was so focussed I couldn't stop to clean up in between each project.
Sounds reasonable right?
Well to quote a twangy country western star: 
"That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!"


  1. here's a couple more sayings for you
    "I'm Creative --you can't expect me to be neat too"

    or "A creative mess is better than tidy idleness"

    I'm glad to see you're human. I thought my sewing area look was because I was unorganized but wait I am unorganized and messy. Oh well

  2. I'm forwarding these pictures to my two sons so they will stop bugging me about my "storeroom" and start ragging on you. Thanks!

  3. A post after my own heart. I am currently sitting in a pile of Valentine supplies. Because I make my kids actually MAKE Valentines for the their class. It looks like Cupid threw up all over the pool table - doilies, lace, construction paper, ribbon...

  4. A post after my own heart. I am currently sitting in a pile of Valentine supplies (I make my kids MAKE their Valentines for school...) Doiles, scraps of lace, pieces of construction paper, ribbon - it looks like Cupid threw up around here...Love the new "header" for the blog pretty!

  5. Must be we are not alone Jennifer! I got more feedback about this post than any other I have done! Cleaning is slow going but I am making some progress. Who knows maybe Cupid will clean up during the night tonight and the mess will have disappeared with Valentine's day? It could happen....right?
