Slow Week In Store

Standard
Most of my sewing space in one picture. I have little room in front of the green, plastic bin that I use to iron fabric.

I have a slow week in store. Due to my irrational fear and hatred of ants, I have the exterior of my house regularly sprayed against them. The interior is sprayed as well, but only parts at one time. This week the pest company needs to spray parts of the house that include my sewing studio space. The space is tiny – 5.5 feet by 8 feet. With every item put up properly the four available walls are stacked up like Tetris. Each item balanced precisely.

When I am working on sewing project, there are pieces of it everywhere. My “sewing studio” fills up quickly. Everything on the sewing table goes to the floor. The ironing board wedges in the “long” open space. Things get moved into the kitchen if I need more room. A mess is birthed in about 3.3 seconds.

Before and after major projects I clean the area all up again. It’s like starting with a blank slate; calming the mind and centering the energy. At least that is how I feel. In between big projects, when I am tackling smaller pieces, all bets are off.

With the bug guy coming, I can’t have that. So everything has been put away until after he has visited. Sad, I know, but no mess to clean up day of and no chance of him finding a pin in his boot.

Generally I use the bug guy visit as an excuse to do intense, deep cleaning of the house. So that unfortunately will probably be what happens.
