Tidy Up For Inspiration

If your sewing room is starting to look anything like the following few photos, it's time to clean up.  Scraps of fabric can be a great source of inspiration but, first you have to clean it up & organize it.  How you organize it is certainly up to you.  The point is to organize it so that you can work with your scraps at a later time.  I've certainly gotten into the habit of saving very small pieces. 

I usually refer to photos I've taken & other sources for how to combine colors.  Especially if I'm stuck & can't think of various color combinations.   Before you do this, tidying up your sewing area is a must.  At least it is for me.  After taking a break from working on my current project, I came back into my sewing area to these two photos & wanted to simply walk away.  Too messy for me even though I'm the one who made this mess.  I knew it was time to take a few minutes to straighten things out.

Today is Sunday & I still haven't cleaned up my space.  I just didn't feel like cleaning just yet.  Instead, I went for a walk around the neighborhood with my husband.  To be continued......
