Yup. That's me. Suzette. Did you ever wonder why I was helping Sandra so much? Other than the fact I was unemployed with lots of free time on my hands? Well I am a bit of a clutterbug myself. I must admit I do hoard a bit in the fabric department. Reluctant to let things go and always accepting things from others. I do try to share with others as often as I can to keep it in check.
Rewind to last fall. My daughter moved out and I immediately took over her room creating a storage area for things like Christmas dishes, my sewing machine collection and tons of fabric! I setup my cutting table so that I could always leave it up. I was in heaven. Well a very messy cluttered heaven.
Over the past few weeks there had been trouble at her place. She easn't getting along with her roommate. He holds the lease. So no surprise she was asked to move out. She hurriedly tried to find a place. She found one and we thought things were going to work out. Then there was an incorrect negative item on her credit report. No choice. She moved back in with me last week while we get her report corrected.
I got home last Thursday and there she was with three helpers. We made a plan of where things would go and they started moving. Most of my stuff is now stacked in my living room behind my recliner so I don't have to see it, if I don't look. I made sure my sewing room didn't get totally blocked off and that I still have free access to my long arm.
By the next day she was all moved back into her room. I was once again surrounded by all my stuff.
I had plans to go sew at the church with my friends Friday night. This whole experience took a direct hit on my mojo. I got there and I was missing things from my sewing bag like pins and scissors. I had misplaced my final months kit for the BOM I'm working on so that weighed on my mind. I didn't bring the extra fabric from the month I was currently working on and needed a few things from it. It was just not a happy time. I persevered and managed to get one border side done and the majority of the second done.
I went home. Not relaxed nor energized. I sat in the middle of my stuff all weekend and never made a single stitch. I did manage to locate the missing kit. To say I am overwhelmed is an understatement. I need to do something.
My plan tonight is to work on something for a short amount of time to try and get myself rolling again. It's been hard since I felt I had really made some progress on getting things under control. The clutter was way down. I will persevere.
Sorry this is such a downer post. Hopefully I'll have some quilty content soon.
