When I was on the set to film my episode of Quiting Arts TV, I asked to have many photos taken of me with the beautiful background in the shot. That set is adorable. It is bright and cheery, and clean and organized. This makes for a very relaxing feeling.
Now I have to confess that my own design “studio” is really more like a design “cave”, in my unfinished basement. I am grateful that it is a large space, and I have tried to spruce it up over the years with area rugs, and white paint (thanks to my wonderful son!) to make it look more like a soul-nurturing space. I must say it looks nothing like that cute Quilting Arts TV set.
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours – – quilting space that is. My quilt posse and I discuss that at length, though none of us has had the courage to show just how bad it is. Maybe we don’t want to be reminded. How could our sacred space that means so much to us be this messy, disorganized and cluttered? Honestly, we aren’t hoarders. The state of our space provides constant anxiety to us.
Are you like us, or have you come up with a solution? I invite you to show me a photo. Take it right now, not an hour from now when you have “tidied up”.
