So tatjna asked a question a while back about how we make stuff in the oft-times limited space we have available, and now I have started making again, I thought I'd show rather than tell. Here is my living room, in the initial phases of a project of moderate size and complexity. Everything I am using will stay out until I have finished - things that are cleaned up and put away often become UFOs - but I have become good at tidying bits of loose thread, triaging offcuts,and generally putting things away as I go, else it gets oppressively claustrophobic. Note the relative clearness of the sewing machine table - it tends to gather horizontal-surface-crud when not in use, and lose it when I want to use it.
I am fortunate in living alone, so there is no-one to annoy with the clutter but myself.
