The messy sewing room has been breached! At least one spot has been. I have a huge antique dresser with the 2 little drawers on top and in our previous house it lived in our guest bedroom with 2 antique crystal lamps sitting on the little drawer sections.
In this house the dresser has always lived in my basement sewing room but I had never unpacked those lamps. After 11 years it was time, right? Interesting find in the box with the lamps - 2 old wooden clocks, one made by my father in a shop class in high school in the 1930s. More about the clocks another time.
This the BEFORE view of the top of the dresser. It had become a landing zone for
junk things I was too lazy to put away or to use. I had almost covered up my thread basket. Yikes!!
I also hung up a wall hanging quilt that I made about 20 years ago. It hung in our living room in the other house but has been folded up in a drawer since moving here. The patriotic fabrics were some of my favorites, but the navy blue had faded after several years of hanging. I decided I don't care that it's faded because I really love it. Notice the prairie points? Guess I loved them back then too.
The thread basket was sitting alone on the top of the dresser once I got it cleaned off, but I have put back my small Ott light and another small project basket. Let's hope I can stop myself from piling stuff up around this again.
And you can't see it but the lid is back on the grey tub of stuff, with the scrap bins on top. So some of the mess has been sorted, used or disposed of, and contained for now. Better yet - there is 1 less box of "stuff" in my storage area.
