Sewing Room Confessional

I finished traveling for work 14 days ago.  I've had much to do during these 14 days, but I will admit my disappointment with myself for not having checked "clean sewing room and make it a magazine-worthy studio that you never want to leave" off my to-do list yet.

While IM unpacking my travel bags from the year, I'm noticing a few problem areas in my studio (basically, every thing in the entire room).

This is under my cutting table:

The cardboard boxes store my fat quarter collections and the plastic bucket is full of scraps for crumb quilts:

I will always have a bin for fabric crumbs since I love to stitch Victoria Findlay Wolfe's 15 Minutes of Play quilts, but there has to be a better storage solution for the rest of this junk stuff.

Maybe, someday, I'll check off that "clean sewing room " box on my to-do list.  The best I can hope for today, though, is admitting that I have a problem.
