a clean workspace. Since I finished my final Christmas sewing project in December, this area has been buried under a mountain of fabric scraps, pattern pieces, and a variety of other items. This past week I made this area my focus—promising myself that I could not start working on anything sewing related until it had been fully dealt with. I know that if I try to work in a mess I just get frustrated anyway, so there’s not really any point to getting started if my workspace isn’t clean. I have cloth diapers waiting in the wings and I can’t wait to get started!
