Pool Noodle!

I love looking at photos of work spaces of other stitchers, quilters and crafters. Seeing the reality of these work spaces makes me feel better about mine (not only the projects that I have covering many of the work spaces, but the amount of stuff that I have accumulated to produce those projects).  Plus, I …

I Love Thread! And I Just Won Some

Two days ago, I blogged about a drawing I entered for a $25 gift certificate to Superior Threads. The give away was hosted by Leslie at MarvelesArtStudios . I originally entered the usual way, by commenting on that particular post. I also noticed the opportunity for an additional chance to win by sharing her blog, …

Altering My New Pressing Boards

Yesterday, I shared how I made and plan to use my new pressing boards. Today, I am posting an update to these boards. The very first time I spray starched and pressed a piece of fabric on my big board, I realize that the way I like to starch my quilt parts and pieces, I …

I Participated, But Just Barely

I got a good start on getting my sewing room set up yesterday, which didn’t leave much energy for sewing. If I had not committed to sewing by signing up for FNSI, I would not have sewn at all. Thankfully, I did sign up and even though it is only a small project, I DID …

I better get busy!

I really hope I can get things organized enough to participate in tomorrow night’s FNSI. This is what my sewing room looks like tonight. I plan to get up early tomorrow and work on unpacking more boxes and getting the new sewing room ready to play.

Getting Started on My New Sewing Room!

My husband and I just bought a foreclosure house to live in. We will be renting his house, which we currently live in, and have already rented out my house. The foreclosure house doesn’t appear to have any structural or mechanical problems, and is actually in pretty good shape overall. I had to replace several …

My Sewing Room ~ As it is Currently

We will be moving again very soon and I wanted to post a few photos of my sewing room as it currently is. This is the “bonus” room. It is next to the single car garage and is the same size, measuring 10ft wide by 20ft long with no closet and 10ft ceilings. There is …
