The closet, across from my sewing desk, holds my magazines and other supplies. The lower bins are filled with UFOs, kits and on-going projects. I’m not allowing myself to purchase any more fabric until I make a dent in these bins! I’ve been whittling them down over the past year, but I have much to do.
It’s a little hard to see, but at the top of the closet I’ve hung my batting (I buy it buy the yard to have on hand) on a pressure rod. In front of the closet is my pull-down design wall. Out of sight when not in use…
It took forever to wrangle this bookcase down the little hall and into my studio, but it was worth all the effort. It holds my patterns, books, church supplies, photo albums, etc. I’m going to create an Access database for my pattern and books. Always something more to do, eh?
This high-top to the left of my sewing desk doubles as my computer/design area and an extra cutting table when needed (we’re going to have to clean up the atrium outside the window for a more inspiring view).
I had these cabinets installed, along with the sewing desk, when I retired about 4 1/2 years ago. I love the cutting area! They’re regular kitchen cabinets & counter tops. The little drawers just beneath the upper cabinets hold cutters, small sewing supplies, and other miscellaneous items. I didn’t have the cabinets all that well organized before…
Here’s another look at my thread board. I absolutely love it!! I found an old picture at a thrift store, painted some pegboard, and put it the frame. The upper threads are for embroidery and the lower are my regular sewing thread. The boxes below are antique sewing maching drawers I found in a little shop in Tucson.
Well, that’s my studio, now to get my hands on my sewing machine!!
There are a couple of new tutorials on the “Try Something New” tab. Check ‘em out!
This is a fun little clutch that I heard about from Natalie Cox**, a Facebook friend. It’s lined and measures about 4 1/2″ x 6″.
Natalie found a tutorial for this bag at www.flamingotoes.com If you click on the “Clothes & Accessories” tab, you will find “Anthro Asterid Coin Purse Knockoff”. It’s a fun tutorial, try it!! Remember, it’s not to early to start your Christmas gifts!!!!!!!
