I hate to clean!

I've done nothing but work on one project after another and again, my sewing room was a disaster (yes, again!). It's probably a good thing the boys are coming because it will be so much nicer when I go back to work after their trip.

My strings bins were a mess.
I didn't even bother to throw out the boxes when I opened up the Go Cutter - they were in the middle of the floor with everything else.

Now, it's all set up for company. The bed is made up.
The string bins are nicely stacked.
The floor and table cleared off. An extra pillow and quilt neatly stacked in the chair.
Thank goodness for these big drawers - all the Happy Block leftovers got stuffed in this one.
And look what's been hiding behind that design wall - my guest bathroom!
I went through and vacuumed, cleaned, and straightened the rest of the house too so we're ready for the boys!

Enjoy every single minute with them ... it's obvious from the pictures you share that they love you just as much as you love them!

And you're done! It looks good and you're right . . it will be so much nicer to sew in there again. Enjoy you time with the boys.

The rooms look beautiful (love the color in the bathroom!) Have a wonderful time with your boys - can't wait to hear all about it (and photos!)

How wonderful the rooms look. I subscribe to the thought that if I don't show "before" it never actually looked like that.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it.....

Have a great visit!

I need a cleaning fairy for my room as well. I can't create in a mess. Love your stacking cubes-could you tell me where you found these?
