Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
There once was a boy who lived in a room. He didn’t know much, how to use a broom. He grew up and moved away, his mom then said what a new day. Mom kept his things in case he came back to seed, but Grandparents flooded and had a need.
Well, I never claimed to be a poet, but this just popped in my head yesterday. We spent the weekend bringing the bed that was in my son’s room to my husband’s parents home. A couple years ago they were flooded with no insurance. They are still recovering from this. I have been sewing in 2 rooms. My machine was in the office and my ironing station was in my son’s room. With lot’s of fabric and stuff stored on the bed. So I’ve been wanting to take the bed out and merge all sewing items in one room to have a convenient place for my craft.
So now I have the beginnings of a studio and I am ecstatic. There was a bunch of cleaning necessary after moving the bed. Apparently, son was using the space underneath as a trashcan. At least it was only papers and not food items. I might have had to give him a call to fuss. Urrgh!!!! I still have some organizing to do. I’ll be looking on pinterest for ideas to manage my stash, but for now it’ll be amazon boxes and what I have on hand. Here’s a look at it so far. Isn’t that afternoon light coming in so bright. It was wonderful until the sun was shining directly in my face, but I’ll be able to close the blinds at that point to cut down the glare.
Do you notice that wonderful 8 foot table? I’m hoping to keep the junk off it and have room to baste my quilts on it. I’ve been crawling around the floor in the living room and it is not nice on the knees and back. I’d like to give this method a try I found on You Tube. I have the supplies ready to go as well as some quilt tops to experiment on. I’ll let you know once I give it a try if it works and I like it. I am open to other suggestions on this. This will be goals for the new year.
Well on to my December OMG, after I moved my machine in the room I decided to try out my new space. Back in September I received my Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop. It contained the makings for a cute table runner with dresdens on it. I decided it fell in line with quick November and December projects that could be gifted for Christmas. I haven’t tried dresdens or applique yet so this will be a new experience for me.
I sewed the charm pack and started marking off the dresends. I decided to mark it then cut to make sure the little template wouldn’t shift. I used the Fixion pens since I would be cutting on the lines and didn’t need to worry if the mark would stay since it would be in the seam allowance.
Once I got them all cut out, I had a nice little stack ready to be sewn and turned.
Here is the progress, lightly press in half and sew the ends. I then flipped them out and pressed again.
Sew, my goal for December is to finish this table runner in time for Christmas as well as a couple other items I’d like to make for gifts.
