Can I just tell you that I’m love, love, loving my reorganised sewing room? I’m so inspired to sew, feeling so creative and wanting to be in there every minute of the day (if only that were possible!!) and, more importantly, I’m achieving.
Yesterday I finished another p and c secret sewing quilt top, made up backings for two quilts and today I dropped them both off at the quilters…………. “happy dance”!
This afternoon I opened the box on another (secret sewing) project, put what was there on the design wall, and cut out and stitched up the remaining blocks. It shall sit overnight and I’ll review colour placements tomorrow, start on a little appliqué and add a little embroidery so it should soon be together too.
And can you believe it, the “newness” is still so in place that I’m cleaning up the workspace, putting everything away, and covering my machine every evening (we shall see how long this process lasts!!). I can’t remember if I’ve shown you my new cutting table all set up, so here ’tis
(Pink spotty bucket from Officeworks a few years ago, neatly holds cutters, pencil and little ruler; recipe holder from don’t know where, handy for cutting instructions; ruler holders from Victorian Textiles – ask your local store to get them in; fabric rubbish bin a present from a friend a few years ago, perfect for little offcuts and snippets – thanks Bonnie). I find I can cut and prep and pin so easily at this table, and my back no longer aches (more happy dancing) so it’s a big win!
With all this progress I felt quite justified in making another little “Sweethearts” block.
