  1. I'm really looking forward to this! I've been slacking in the cleaning department LOL!

  2. Thanks for posting this here! I don't do much on IG. Goodness knows, I need to clean and organize my studio!!!

  3. Sounds great except for 2. List all projects & kits - that is 30 days worth just in that one task hahaha

  4. To do this remove the upper thread, bobbin and needle and raise the presser foot. singer sewing machine oil

  5. I won't be able to do #2 until much later in the list! LOL

  6. Okay, so this is a year old, and I'm just now finding it. Big deal...I still need it this year!!!! I'm joining in a bit late (but, I'll catch up) and think of Amber and Jessica on May 1, 2021, and every day thereafter when I look at my sparkling clean sewing room!
