The mardi Gras quilt is completely cut out except for the large background pieces. I'm not taking that with me. If I get half the star blocks pieced I'll be very happy. I'm taking some scraps just in case I need and extra piece or two. Now all of my projects are ready to travel.
After I finished packing the projects I glanced around my sewing room and saw a complete disaster. I don't wan to come home to that so I spent an hour or so straightening up. The items on the cutting table include the rest of the Mardi Gras fabrics and a couple of projects that I'm pondering. They can wait there quietly until I make a decision.
The sewing table is clean for the first time in months!
I even cleared off a 10" pile of paper and books beside the computer. Now I don't have to dread walking in here when I get back.
I spent the rest of the day doing a little packing and next I need to get my car crochet project started. I don't like doing the chain and first row in the car. It will be better if I have a little base to kick me off.

Have a wonderful trip! I have many lovely memories of popovers at the Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park. The last time we were there, my husband and daughter found wild blueberries growing off to the side.

Ahhh, it is always nice to come home to a neat work area.

Have a wonderful time! I am the same about cleaning up before we leave. Drives my husband nuts, but the last thing I want to do coming home is walking in to chaos after relaxing. Did you build your sewing table? It is wonderful.

It's funny how we seem to have a compulsion to leave our homes in pristine condition when we leave them - kind of like not leaving home without clean underwear!

I'm so impressed by your clean studio. It is inspiring me to do something with mine. Thanks for this post!
