Coming up the stairs to our "sewing room".....I have a "mis-mash" of furniture, which I like!.... Hi Friends, I have been so busy with projects in the last few months that my sewing room had gotten to a point of no return! It was a HORRIBLE MESS!....With each project, I cleaned off just enough space to work on that particular piece, but never actually picked up anything more than I absolutely had to?....I kept telling myself I would clean up after each project, but it just didn't happen!!! I even tried to talk myself into the idea that "creative people are artistic, not necessarily organized"!???...What crazy logic!....Anyway, I finally decided to stop procrastinating & clean up! It has taken me about 5 days....I have gone through every drawer... folded every piece of fabric, organized each notion,... dusted, washed & vacumned. And here it is.....My "clean" sewing room!!.....Look quick!!...can't guarantee it will be this neat for long! A pair of long, skinny "Ballard Design" tables.... set "end to end" they make the perfect place to spread out a project & sew..... Love this arrangement, since as you work you have a full view of the neighborhhood!..... O.K., I am a bit "nosey"!
Antique green French cupboard houses our "T.V."( behind the glass doors), tissue paper, glue guns, quilting templates, rubber stamps, etc.......Next to it is another Ballard Design piece, filled with somewhat "pretty things"...ribbons, sequins, millinery flowers, tiny boxes, etc....& of course our cutting table.....
This is the "fabric closet" that holds all of our fabric, ribbons, pieced quilt-tops (waiting to be quilted) & projects for clients.......Remember it's not just my things, but my two daughters as well!
Another view looking across the room....I truly LOVE this space!!! Before this house, I was always sewing in the basement, so this is quite a treat for the girls & I!.....Happy sewing & crafting all!!!.....LOve, Heidi
Note: My "100th post" is quickly approaching!...should happen within the next few days! Since you all have become so special to me over the last few months, I have decided to have a "giveaway"! I am asking you to please leave a comment that day & your name will go in the drawing! The first name randomly chosen, will be sent one of my "Fairfield" striped quilts, the second a Fairfield quilted striped "runner" & the third one of my "Summer" pillows! I so hope you will vist that day!!...see you there!
