Coming Clean in the Studio – Part 2

But first, here is my latest Cruciform – #3. It is in the mail on its way to the recipient.



I think I mentioned that someone was interested in one of my Lunar Eclipse pieces. She came by today and wrote me a check, and it went home with her.


And Terry really likes this one, so we are trading. I am getting one of her exquisite nests.


So, about the coming clean. You can do anything for 15 minutes. That is my mantra for cleaning. I set a timer for 15 minutes and have at it. So tonight, I got some organizing done. Here is the cutting table clean and ready for the intended purpose.


And here is the sewing machine area. Ahhhh!


Don’t be deceived, there is still plenty to be done. But this much accomplished has already energized me. I must get finished as I have quilts in my head wanting to come out.

    Wow, I scrolled down and saw the dissary and then back up to the super neat…uncluttering is wonderful. The development of the cruciform is wonderful to see also. So simple but really visually potent. Also, congrats on the success of the other work. It’s so rewarding, isn’t it?

    I loove the cross – the stitching is just wonderful! I’m coming clean too, but not in the studio (yet). It’s amazing how many steps I get on days I’m straightening up or, now, painting rooms.

    Congratulation! Both quilts are outstanding.

    The new cruciform is beautiful. Lucky recipient! I’m glad the new owner of the lunar eclipse couldn’t get it out of her mind and decided to make the purchase!

    What a difference- from chaos to clean! You’ve inspired me to make efforts in 15 minute increments. Today.

    Oh yayyyyyy! That is so great that you sold your amazing lunar eclipse and even greater that she wanted the one that was not the one I most wanted! (Did that make any sense?) It will have a place of honor in my new house!
