[Well, finally my blog is up again after some sort of an attack. Typepad has been working 24/7 to fix it for days now, lets hope it will stay this way]
And now back to posting..........
FINALLY I’m finished cleaning and overhauling my sewing room (take that spring!!)
Wow! I thought it would take me two or three days but NO!!! THREE WEEKS thank you… I’m not sure I would have started this little “project” if I would have known up front the time it would take me BUT… HELLO wonderful (again) sewing room!!
Four huge garbage bags of trash went to the waist and I can’t imagine where this stuff was hiding in the sewing room (okay, in baskets and bags all over the floor maybe) cough cough!! Moreover, stuff, equivalent to three more garbage bags went to charity and to the kids’ schools (all kind of crafting supplies, fabrics and yarn).
Now I can breathe more easily since the room is so clean – I almost cleaned every needle! – it’s really soul-cleansing to throw away stuff you don’t need anymore :)
One more upside of inviding a cleaning-tornado into your home is all the inspiration you get from it – all I want to do now is to sit in my “new” room, sewing and sewing.
I’ve got a lot of projects under the needle and I’ll show you this week when it’s ready.
Until then, few pictures from my room,
My scrap boxes
Here is a great space problem solver
Purple glasses and turquoise and green Tilda's flower fabrics, all rests from Arna's and Andrea's dresses along with some Art Gallery fabrics, Sweet Water and the cutest McCall's prints (I think it will be a BIG bag someday) :)
My Tilda fabrics are in the back
More Tilda's in front (in the jar) and some Joel Dewberry's in the back (the rest from my bed quilt... which b.t.w. I still have to show you since I just finished the binding two days ago!!)
On top to the right, part of all the polka dots Anna sent me, so cute. And Kaffe Fasset in the back. And to the left, some fabrics I've used for Arna's dresses and more
My linen fabrics, alot from Anna
And my Andrea (my promising seamstress) got one shelf for her growing pile of fabrics!
This cutest little espresso cup was a present from the Icelandic Patchwork and Quilting Association when I finished my work on the board
These shoes were a birthday present from my hubby. He bought them after I saw them on some english 60's blogpage. Who says you can't decorate your shelfs with shoes? And fabric? LOL :)
Have a great day everyone
