My sewing space is down in my basement and over the last few years, it had become a hot mess.  I couldn't do any sewing at all, because there were boxes of junk and in all the empty space, and my sewing table was covered in Mil's craft projects.  So, I spent all I did some major cleaning in my basement over the winter holidays - mostly because of my husband's promise to put a gas heater in the basement when I got it cleaned up.

So I spent my 2 weeks off work for Christmas cleaning up and cleaning out the space.  I've now got access to my sewing space again. And I have made a lovely play area for Mil.  That means that she can play, and I can work on my projects while still keeping an eye on her.

I'm very happy with the progress I've made in cleaning up my space. But I soon discovered that the only way I was going to get any farther in cleaning up the space, was to start working on projects that I had planned. Because completing a project, means using up supplies I've gathered. That means less "stuff" that I'll need to find a home for.  So, I'll be trying to get through some of the partially complete projects I haven't had the time for.

The goal is to get rid of all the boxes of projects that are currently living in the middle of the sewing and craft spaces. Plus working my way through more storage tubs that are still living on the far side of the basement.

I expect the space to be a work in progress for a while, but I'm still proud of the progress.  Have you started any big projects lately?
