I have this theory that a happy work area is well organized, and well looked after. This also could be my Virgo-ness coming out. A work area should be clean, everything having its place, labeled , colour coded; providing inspiration for the user. A place that is a joy to work in.
Mine currently is not. Mine is a mess, full of scraps, half finished projects, pins , and just general chaos. Also I stepped on one of my pod cushions… 20 pins in my foot.
I have a problem, and I am the 1st to admit it, I collect fabric. Not intentionally either ! I ….I swear ! It’s true thought; it’s seems to be an issue with many of the people sewing out there. I know … I check. I personally can’t get rid of fabric, I have to save it some some reason; But why I am saving it for some unknown project that I might be / could be doing is a mystery.
I think also it has to do with the large amount of textile waste in the world. So awful. I just don’t like the idea of something that can be made into something beautiful thrown away.
I have also thought about donating it. To whom then? School? Art classes ? Other crafters?
There is my social rant for the time being!
