So here’s some images of my studio, also know as the sewing room. Now, I cleaned nearly the whole thing out for my son’s graduation so I could use the room for a buffet. That actually worked great. Now, I am slowly bringing my stuff back in. So far, I have been only bringing stuff back as I think of it. Things are scattered in the basement and the rafters of the garage. Last night I was thinking of recycling some of my old greeting cards. When I couldn’t remember where they were, and the first couple places I looked didn’t unearth it, I decided to use other materials. I know that I will want that box, but I am trying to be very intentional about each and every thing.
Actually, most of this stuff I never took out. The baskets are decorative and the button jars intentional. I love my button jars, and I plan to expand the jars and get shelving made that fits them exactly.
Here’s some of my scraps. I have more packed away in the garage. I have been itching to work with them. I want to begin working on cutting the centers for my cathedral window denim quilt. Even though I don’t have all the circles cut, I want to try to assemble it. However, I can’t find my new 4.5 inch ruler. Anyway, these are stored in cut off two liter pop bottles stacked on their sides to make a honeycomb. I love the way I can just reach up and touch the fabric instantly. Also, the bottles are not attached to each other so I can pull each bottle down as I wish to work on them. However, they are not very pretty. I had the scraps in plastic containers before this idea occurred to me. I found that annoying because I would have to pull each down and search through them. I still have some plastic tubs in the garage to deal with. At times, I would have them organized by color but that would only last so long. I’m still thinking about how to store my scraps.
