It's Wednesday and re-organising my sewing space has been my work in progress this week.
I have a small dedicated sewing room (I cannot call it a studio) but it is my little haven away from the world and away from the testosterone running rampant in my house. I have a wonderful husband and 2 gorgeous teenage boys (well at 15 and 18 they are men really) and a cheeky male dog that follows me everywhere so it is nice to have a 'girly' space to call my own. I have rearranged it a few times but I think this will be the final layout as it seems to work the best in the small space I have available.
I can just fit in a couple of desks - one for my main machine which is used for quilting and the second for my very old Bernina which I use for piecing. With a couple of bookshelves and a small cutting/ironing station my room is full but it is all that I need.
This is my very small stash. I have folded any yardage and it is on the top shelves on the right. Fat quarters are sorted by colour and are stored in the top 12 tubs on the left. Anything smaller has been cut up into usable sizes such as 2.5" squares etc. They are in the labeled tubs on the left. Strips and strings are in the tubs on the floor.
I feel so much more in control with everything organised. Now all have to do is decorate the room with some quilts on the wall, new curtains etc. Hopefully I will get that done in the coming months.
I did manage to do some sewing this week and attached the borders on my Easy Street (Bonnie Hunter mystery) quilt. I love the pattern but definitely do not love my colour choices so I will get this quilted and donate it to charity.
I am linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday Linky Party. I get so inspired looking at all of the wonderful things people from all over the world are working on.
Until next week.
