Cleaning for guests can be worthwhile!

My sister Dawn is visting for a few days from Florida.  One of things I have told my husband is that I will make sure that the quilting/spare bedroom is available for guests.  So once I got done cleaning for the family Christmas gathering I started working on the spare room.  The room was actually usable when my friend Claire came to visit this summer.  I have a real problem with horizontal surfaces as you can tell by these pictures.

Yes, there is a bed under all that fabric!

Sewing table

Now the bed has fresh linens and even a quilt on it!

I have re-organized some of my notions into baskets and containers.

My husband did ask where everything went!!  It has been relocated to my side of the basement.  That is an area that needs a real makeover.

As soon as Dawn leaves for Florida the quilt will be folded and the bed stripped.  Then my 12 UFO's will be found and placed in order my month.  I need to get busy tomorrow and get some binding cut and some blocks pressed.  I'm going through quilting withdrawal!!

You are an inspiration in more ways than you know. Love how fast you tore down your sewing room, but sad to hear what has been carted to the basement. On the other hand, here I sit thinking about renting a storage locker. Ahh. Need to finish our UFOs don't we?

Have fun with your sister. I hope she brings plenty of sunshine. Enjoy.

My guests are gone and the bed is stripped of sheets. Now it holds baskets from the sewing table. I needed to open up space for putting binding on my first UFO and I need to quilt a late Christmas gift!

I have a spare room that looks just like that, want to come over and help me organize.
