im so embarrassed

a friend on twitter threw down a challenge last tuesday to show our messy sewing rooms. i said mine was the worst. she contended hers was. we both have chaos undoubtedly!!! i am so embarrassed to show this pic, but maybe it will make me clean up again.
this leads me to the question....are you a messy sewist or a tidy one? do you make messes and then have to do a major clean up? if you are a messy sewist, does it hinder your creativity to be surrounded by mess or does it encourage the process?
i am messy and i know it hinders me.when it is clean and everything put in its place i feel renewed and want to sew up a storm. when its cluttered, i feel claustrophobic and dont even want to be in there.
do tell, and if you are daring enough....show us pix!

Messy-ness makes me feel claustrophobic too. I have to tidy up regularly or I won't sew. Thanks for sharing your space! It doesn't look all that bad to me. Manageable messy-ness. :P

It could be lots worse. The floor looks clean.

You should see the disaster that is my sewing room! Yours is immaculate compared to mine! It is a wonder that I get anything done!

Oh, you're just being silly if you think this is messy! ;)

You must be kidding! I'd consider that quite tidy.......no way am I showing a picture of my sewing room.

you've got nothing on me, girlfriend. you should see my room. oyvey. if I could just clean off my table and actually make enough room to cut something, I could get to work!!!

Yes, i agree with the previous comment, at least your floor is visible! I hate having a messy sewing room, espeically in my fabric storage. Nothing like a good tiding up to get reinspired for new projects! I dont have a desinated sewing area here, so cleaning up after every sewing session is quite the chore!
