Barbara asked me what the Laundry Basket of Shame is. She thinks she might have one.
Every once in a while someone comes to visit or we have new windows put in. That means I have to clean up the floor in my sewing room. It is a Herculean task. I guess I just need more storage. I'd rather think that than acknowledge that I am a slob or a hoarder. My cabinets are full of stuff I want to do someday. When my sons moved away, I ended up with extra laundry baskets. They didn't want to take them with. So I used one (or two or three) to stick stuff in.
Works in progress, unfinished projects, half finished projects that I meant to get back to soon, threads, patterns that I made one of the things and want to make the rest, more threads, projects that need finishing but I haven't decided how to finish yet, that new kit that came in the mail. My problem is that the laundry basket is full and over flowing.
My Laundry Basket of Shame is under my table by my happy chair. Beside it is another laundry basket where I stick linen. It is full also. Up in the closet I have a plastic bin where I keep my DMC threads.
I actually love being surrounded by all my stuff. The mess doesn't really bother me except when I can't find something or there is no place to walk.
P.S. Don't tell anybody how messy I am.
