Sewingroom OCD

 As today is my day of, I decided to spent some time sewing. First i had to de-clutter; I simply cannot sew a gazillion stars when there's stuff all over the place. I searched for sewingroom ideas the other day and came across these...

,,a dream for many, a nightmare to me. Wááááy too much going on. I would go mad if I had to sew there!
About a year ago I tossed my old and worn wooden cabinets out and replace them with white ones. This was in the midst of the make-over :)

  I DO have too much stuff (or a too small room...)
 Now I sew here. Painted the mini drawers blocks white..

I have a constant struggle between the need to display things and the need to keep it as clutterfree as I possibly can. The fabric on the table is what I'm currently sewing. When i'm done, it has to go again.

It's much better now, but still I would prefer everything behind doors or in drawers and just a very few things out in the open.
I'm thinking about a way to organise my threads. i constantly mix up cones and bobbins. A pegboard? Oh shudder....


  1. I like your sewing room. It's good to know you are so busy these days!

  2. ja, mijn klosjes zijn ook een probleem....

  3. maar ik wil wel zo'n houten of zinken leuk brocante antieke klosjesrekje trouwens ;-)
