I currently sew at our dining room table, although I hope to turn the nursery into a sewing room as soon as the baby is old enough to bunk with big brother. He’s not a baby anymore really – he’s 2. But I enjoy still thinking of him as “the baby” for now.
This is my beloved Juki, which I purchased earlier this summer and just adore. I made several beautiful quilts with my old Singer though and I actually had to keep her for the occasional need of her zigzag stitch.
This is how I keep my sewing space as tidy as possible, given that it’s in the middle of our home: one bucket for scraps big enough to use and one bucket for scraps less than 1 square inch (my personal cutoff). And there’s a little “quilt” my 3-year-old made with scraps and glue. So cute.
I keep my fabric in the closet.
There’s my neglected Accuquilt cutter. I really should sell that.
Have you seen Jeni Baker’s folding method? After a few of you mentioned it in your stash showing party posts I checked it out. Actually her whole “Art of Choosing” series is pretty interesting. I’ve been working my way through it.
On Saturday night I started refolding my stash while watching some new Tom Cruise movie with my husband! It’s a big job but I love how it’s looking.
The thing I look forward to most about creating a new sewing room is the idea of getting my fabric out of hiding and displaying it on shelves! That will make me so happy. I’ve been tempted to fill this guy with fabric but I’ve resisted so far.
So that’s where I sew guys! Moving it will be bittersweet because I love being nearby the kids’ playroom. I’ll have to find a new way of organizing my sewing time.
Today sewing starts for our first project for the Penny Sampler! I’m sure I’ll have some WIP pictures to share very soon. And later this week, a big announcement for our friends who are beginners or have not yet made their first quilt!
