There were two 20/10s on my To Do list for today.

First, the spare bedroom / my sewing room:

I’ve been working on making Christmas gifts, in particular a large quilted wall-hanging for my mother, and so my workspace has been just getting messier and messier because I “don’t have time to tidy it”. Since I know I work better, faster, and am less prone to screwing things up and making mistakes if the environment I’m working in is neat and tidy, I scheduled a 20/10 for this room *before* sitting down to work on my projects today.

YES! All this done in just ONE 20/10, and I put everything away properly where it belonged, I didn’t just shove the crap into a closet or under the bed! The fabric, etc. that’s on the desk and ironing board in the “After” pictures is what I’m using for the current project only, everything else has been put away.

And because I had cleared off the bed, I was able to lay out my project for the first time to see what it was going to look like:

My other 20/10 was part of my on-going effort to get the house clean in time for the holidays, when my family is coming for Christmas dinner. I’ve been working in the bathroom this week, and today’s task was to clean the mould out of the window sill & frame. Our house was built as an air-tight, but we don’t run it as one, because we can’t afford to run the air-conditioner all summer. Consequently we have mould problems. I hate de-moulding the windowsills (and every windowsill in the house needs doing regularly *sigh*) partly because “Mould - ICK” partly because the window frames have a bunch of little cracks and crannies that I can never get clean, and partly because I know it;s just going to get gross again.

So I promised myself a caramel brownie left over from craft group last night after I cleaned the bathroom windowsill, and that turned out to be enough incentive:

And since it actually took LESS than 20 minutes, I drain-volcanoed the bathroom sink while I was in there!

And the caramel brownie was delicious :)
