I've been contemplating whether or not to even blog any more - time constraints, interest waning, etc. etc. etc.
I do love seeing others wonderful projects and sharing a bit of my life with others also, so here goes a multiple post update.
About 3 months ago, I did some deep cleaning of my sewing/creating areas. Firstly, for my "Inspiration Space", I unpiled my desk, rearranged magazines and books and made new curtains.
Secondly, I finally completely took over our son's bedroom for my sewing room. I had been sewing there for a couple of years but hadn't taken down his twin beds or anything from the walls. But I did it and I LOVE it!
As you enter:
Counter Clockwise Around the room: The Ironing Station:
Great Grandmother's Pillow Cover framed by my DIL for a birthday present.
Grandmother's Garden quilt that I bought at a flea market, a small quilt from vintage blocks, one of my doll quilts (the Peter Rabbit) and mug rug from a friend..
Silvia - her primary use is FMQ though I do use her to mend jeans and attach bindings. She sits under the window so I can look out at the sky and occasionally ponder. She is a 1970's model and was made in Italy.
Another Vintage Necchi - a 1960's model named Nora. She belonged to Mike's mom and is a dream for stitching long straight stitches. I like to assemble flimsys with her.
Black Beauty's corner:
An old cigar box from my grandmother's things:
She kept buttons in it!
Hope you enjoyed the tour of my new sewing room! I'll be posting some of projects in a day or two!
Blessings to each of you!
