My friend Karen at Living Life at Leehaven recently posted a picture of her
messy cutting table and played a game to see if she could spy 15 things on its cluttered surface. I thought it was such a cute, fun idea and asked her if I could steal her concept and start a tag game. Let's see who has the messiest table. If I think it is you, I will send you a prize. Post your photo on your blog and let's have a vote!
So, here you see my work space, which is a total joke, since you can easily see there is absolutely no room to do anything at all, since there is no clear space to speak of. Can I spy 15 things? Oh, no problem.
1) Basket of left over scraps and a roll of something called buckram.
2) Tape measure
3) Open book--Blended II
5) Parts of blended blocks I may or may not use
6) Scraps of background fabrics for blended blocks
7) Background, green, tan and black fabric I am auditioning for more blended blocks
8) Chalk marker
10) Cutting ruler
11) Precision Trimmer
12) Pin holder
13) Iron and ironing mat
14) Parts of blended block I will definitely use
15) Diet Coke
There is a lot more under there, but I think 15 is more than enough to mention.
I consider myself a very organized person, as evidenced by the smidgen of the tool grid you see above my cutting table. Thread is all arranged by color, rulers hung by size and type, rotary cutters lined up, and a few inspiration patterns on a hook. But the cutting table work space just gets away from me in my creative moments.
Hmmm, who shall I tag? Karen is already in, Lisa for sure, and Susan, Pam, Sharon, Perry, Cindy, and ANYONE ELSE who wants to play! Let me know if you post a photo on your blog so we can have a look! Whose got the biggest mess?
