I tend to be a messy quilter! Oh, I'm not messy with my quilting---actually my quilts tend to be neat and precise, I am messy with my studio!!! I get working quickly and lay a rotary cutter here, throw some scraps there, set the scissors down here and threads seem to end up everywhere! I do not like to work in a mess though, and since no one else is bound to clean up after me, I have to take care of it myself!!! Today was the day. I spent some time organizing and cleaning so I could start in a clean studio in the morning. I suppose just so I can mess it up again!
I also took some time to clean my machines and change needles. For some reason I'm lucky in that I seldom break a machine needle---that's good. However, because of this, I tend to forget that it is important to change my needles---that's not good. It is amazing what a difference a new needle makes.
While we're on the subject...don't forget to change the blade on your rotary cutter too. Again...what a difference!!!
I'm all set for tomorrow with a clean studio, clean machines, fresh needles and sharp blades.
I'll sleep well tonight and dream about my next project.
