Here it is all tidy and ready for sewing. – my sewing room. This picture was taken during one of our recent storms and so the light is a bit low, but I think you can see the space pretty well.
The goal was to make the work area as efficient as possible. I have the iron and board to the left for instant pressing. I love that. Each project has its own basket so that I don’t misplace anything. Some baskets are simply fabrics that I think look great together, but are awaiting the right pattern or project.
Here’s a closeup of the sewing table. On the left is a roatary mat and a basket with triangles and other cutting rulers.
This is my ‘design wall’ which is just a piece of batting. I don’t love it here, and it’s pretty small, but it’s still reallly helpful. These here are two quilts I’m working on, one is Hop, Skip & Jump quilt, and the other is my own design for a very dear friend.
Below is the new cutting table which folds down. I really like it! The basket holds all of my ‘bee business’ including postage, recently received blocks and things to mail out. To the right…new fabrics. Lately, I’ve really been drawn to Kaffe Fassett.
And, if you ever come visit us, this is where you’ll sleep – the guest portion of the room, complete with quilt of course.
