Every once in awhile I find a break in my quilting schedule that allows me to clean up my studio. I move things and take stock of what I have. My machine also needs a regular maintenance in order for it to stay in top shape for daily use.
If I'm not careful the dust bunnies take over my space. Well, having a couple of days leeway with my quilting schedule this week means I can clear out the accumulation of dust bunnies. See them on the frame?
I took the time I needed to clean. A clean space just feels different. It feels.... um..... energetic. Back when my daughter still lived at home I could always get her to cook dinner by cleaning the kitchen. There was something about a clean kitchen that got her in the mood to cook. She never cleaned up the kitchen when she was finished cooking but that was ok. If she cooked I would clean up. That's how I feel about a clean studio. It energizes me to be creative.
So I moved everything and cleaned everything. I even did maintenance on my machine. Yuck, it really needed cleaning. I don't like for it to get that dirty. It's not good for the machine.
I'm waiting on a batting order before I can work on the next quilt. It should arrive today or tomorrow. Until the batting arrives I can continue with my cleaning.
