This weekend I finally buckled down and reorganized my sewing area. It has been driving me nuts. Confession my whole house has been driving me nuts--nesting has kicked in (I'm 4 1/2 months along) and I want everything reorganized. My cutie pie daughter thinks the house is more fun messy. Baby steps... Anyway, here is a glimpse at my sewing corner.
I bought the sewing table used before we moved to Arizona and refinished the top half in a cheery green. I love it! As we were shortly moving I decided to give the old machine that came with it to a friend. If I still had the original machine I probably wouldn't have to prop something under the flap (it was very heavy), but my plastic storage thing was nearly the perfect height for the job so it works.
I oddly find it refreshing to reorganize something like a bulletin board. I should get a few frames and/or a little shelf up next to it so it's not so lonesome. Another confession, I came across a bag of vintage notions this weekend. Full of ric-rac, buttons, and other lovelies. The wooden spools displayed on the board were from that bag--love!
I'm happy with my newly cleaned sewing corner. Enough so that I started sewing a purse, which I have been itching to do recently. I did have to put a few other projects on hold, but I'm nearly done and excited to have a new bag. Unfortunately I still haven't finished my quilt...I may ditch the extra quilting rows I wanted to do (purely for looks, it's not really needed) and bind it.
