semi organized

We live in a pretty teeny house. I suppose if we had less crud it wouldn’t seem so teeny. Anyway, the front bedroom is our MPR (multi-purpose room. Remember when schools used to have separate cafeterias, gymnasiums, and auditoriums? No more. Now they have MPRs. I think that term is kind of funny, though, so I like to use it. MPR! MPR! Ha ha ha!). It is a guest room, sewing room, storage room, and Peter’s dressing room. Basically, it is a mess!
Yesterday I decided I needed to tackle it and get the other metal table in there and do some supereggplant-style organization (which is to say half-assed). It does make it easier to sew, but man, I need to stop stashing and stockpiling!

    What kind of sewing table do you have on that far wall? I love that you own three machines. Lucky…

    Hi, I am new to blogging and just stopped at your site. You make very cute things and I am envious that you can sew so well and have a craft place. I love to do knitting and sometimes do beading.

    Peter gets a dressing room? Do you have one too? 🙂
    Looks like it will be much more usable with the extra table in there.

    Stop stashing? That’s like Matisse saying he needed to clear up all the paper and scissors cluttering up his bedroom. You need abundance of varied materials to be Super Eggplant. Stripped-Down Eggplant? Never! xoxo Kay

    Ooohhh, but how nice to actually have a space for sewing! And, a serger and two sewing machines!!! Heaven!

    I love your MPR! We have one too. About 12’x12′. The computer and all it’s paraphernalia, my stash, my sewing machine, book shelves, AND our guest pull out futon (which our Siamese claims as her own). Where are the Mission Organization folks when you need them?

    That looks pretty organized to me! We have a MPR too, and I think I might just have to rename it that–we always call it something different: guest room, tv room, office….Multi Purpose Room–perfect!

    Woah! Look at all those sewing machines. What an awesome little space you got there. I’m jealous.

    looks real organized to me, especially if so many goodies come out of that MPR of yours 😉
