Can't take any more requests for strips and scraps right now - I'm up to my ears. I haven't thrown out any fabrics, but there is a bag of butt-ugly brown prints from eons ago that I can't even imagine anyone wanting. I would photograph them but they would break the camera. Maybe I should challenge myself. On second thought...
Knowing a realtor was coming to look at the house yesterday, I at least got this sewing room in shape. See?
This is my "office" part, where I am now sitting with my laptop - where else? on my lap.
These are only a few of the bins filled with fabric. Others are next-to and under the cutting table. Not to mention out in the garage. Gulp. My granddaughter Kayla, who is going off to college and is learning to sew, is currently making tote bags. She wants to come and shop for fabric in my house. Good!
The other table has become a small ironing surface (can you tell?) and a resting place for my vintage DMC floss cabinet (filled with embroidery thread) and my vintage thread cabinet; a gift from my friend Audrey when she moved and didn't have room for it. Ha - this will move with me.
My temporary bulletin board/design wall is perched over there on another bin of fabrics,
waiting in vain for me to have time to throw some fabric at it.
I just unearthed the book, Dream Sewing Spaces from under a pile of STUFF. Maybe it's time to take a look at it for the next incarnation. My dream is to organize a studio with things from The Container Store.
What's the best thing about your studio space?
