It was a busy day setting up in the sewing room.
First I cut three dresses for my daughter - same pattern, different trim. I've even cut a small peter-pan collar for one of them, we'll see how it plays out. If it works, it will be *adorable*. If not, we can just go with dress-as-is.
Then I got sick of my scraps attacking me and shoving things in my various stash keepers and having it attack. While yes, I have a lot of fabric - especially after I got crazy at the fabric store and with that linen - some of it isn't stuff I'm sewing up right this second. (I have quite a lot of wool that my mom has picked up when she's driven through the NW... aka where the Pendleton wool outlet store is. Hoarding? Yes. Need a lot of wool in SoCal? No, not really). And while I *do* want to sew up a quilt some day - the scraps for same don't need premium real estate.
And anyway, things just sprawl out as you work in a space. Or, well - in my workspaces they do. So.
I've mentioned that I sew in an enclosed patio? Okies. So - left to right, top to bottom:
Flannel scrap (baby toys, rice wraps, etc), quilt scraps, my suit pattern for the red suit (Gertie), and a pretty box my husband got me.
Next row - sheets to cut up for muslins/trial garments. This is what happens when you start telling people, "I'll take your old sheets." My embroidery bag. A box of older patterns.
Next row: Phone, starch, a tailor's ham and a box of odd notions. My sewing notebooks, and a book on corsetry. Box of patterns. Box of lace & ribbon. Box of patterns.
Bottom: Betsy. My sewing box. Bags of current projects (I put all 9yo's dresses in individual bags, with the trims I thought would like nice with them. I have a sundress in there too). And then I have the white linen from the priests' garments. I really must sew up those hats so I can give the bolt of fabric to the *church* to store. They have more room than I do! And a spinner of all the colors of thread that my BFF got me for Christmas. It's come in quite handy... :)
Ironing board, sewing machine, proper stable table to sew on. The chest mostly has fabric in it, as does a hope-chest you can't see in this picture. And a couple of dresses that want ironing.
It's not super fabu, but I enjoy my space and spend a ton of time in it. Hope you enjoyed seeing it!
