out of my current sewing room and into the downstairs. I have a finished basement with a lot of space, but I hated it down there when I first started quilting. But....look at this mess.....
I have no room to even think about using my quilt frame. It's just sat there and I've piled crap all over it. It's turned into expensive storage. I need a large space to use it and my downstairs is just sitting there full of other crap we don't need. A lot of stuff went to a yardsale pile and the garbage today. The whole area down there is the same as my whole upstairs, so it's about 1100 square feet of junk area. So, I sweet talked Garry into helping me start cleaning it out today. We didn't even have a fight! Amazing! I will still need a large part of it for storage and stuff, but half of it will be my sewing area now. I'm going to just hang curtains or something to partition half of it off. Here's what the end I got cleaned out looks like now
I don't have a clue where that ratty old sofa sleeper couch came from, but it's leaving. I can't even lift one end of it or would already be outta there. I did get my fabric and moved down there today. When my son moved out (ok, I forced him to move out, but that's another story) he left piles and piles of stuff down there. It's all leaving too. Look at how much room I'll have when I'm done though!
Yep, that's a big fancy treadmill that I don't use. I couldn't get to it before, but I think I'll be able to use it when this mess is all cleaned up. I'm very excited. And yep again, that's a big pile of play station steering wheels. Garry picked out the ones he's keeping and called his buddies to see if they wanted any of the ones he isn't keeping. They want them....when do boys grow up? Garry said he can put some of those daylight lighting fixtures in down there and that will take care of why I hated it down there before. I guess that's all I've got for now. I'll be sore tomorrow, so maybe I'll go start moving smaller things down there now......or not!
