Sometimes 10 things can be a lot — was it for you?
It was a big effort for me to get to 10 things, but they did make a difference. I may have to repeat this one!
I shipped off 3 boxes of finished projects, which actually cleared 16 items out of my sewing room, but I’m just counting it as three.
I cleared most of the stuff off my cutting table and piled it elsewhere, and while I was doing that, I managed to put away three of the piles where they actually belong. So there’s six.
In my office, I filed some things — seven.
And threw away some things — eight.
I put away some of the random mess of items around my sewing chair in the living room — nine.
And I cleaned out a drawer in my bedroom and got rid of some shirts I no longer wear. While that’s not studio related, I’m counting it as number ten!
Here’s this week’s task:
While I’m away this week teaching at Quilt Camp, it’s a week I can actually live without my sewing machine (since all my classes are handwork classes this time). So after I left for the week, I had My Cowboy take my sewing machine in for service.
I know it’s in dire need of some TLC on its innards!
How about you?
Is your machine in need of a good cleaning and oiling?
Do you do this yourself? Or do you put it in the hands of a professional?
Is it time for you to do it?
Your machine will love you for it, and perform a lot better. I’m sure my little Janome will be thanking me for its Spa Day! She works hard, and she deserves it.
