This makes the third time this year that my sewing space has moved, but I think the third time really is the charm for me. I'm loving this new area, and hopefully my machine and I can put up our feet and stay a while. We're now occupying a corner of the classroom/playroom, using some old family furniture that has turned out to be quite a delight.
My mom suggested that I take over the old secretary desk that she once used for her sewing stuff, and I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. There are a ton of little nooks and crannies in here that are perfect for storing notions.
The glass cupboard up top now showcases my smaller precuts and fat quarters along with my scrap buckets.
I also have an old cupboard next to the desk for holding extra fabric and thread as well as smaller pieces of batting. A sideboard from IKEA works as my cutting table and storage for my machine when it's not in use. The light coming through the window is wonderful, and I love having a view right out to our little rose garden in the backyard.
This little quote that I copied years ago is staying where I can see it while I work:
That sounds about right for the day ahead. :)
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
School starts today? Love that quote. AmenReplyDelete

What a lovely piece of furniture just waiting to be feeling very useful and special. Now that is a little corner I would gladly sit down in. And I often have a week where no needle pierces fabric but that's life with a busy family. I hope you get your sewing opportunity this weekend.ReplyDelete
Would you believe - I have that quote too, written in calligraphy and illustrated, by my fathers' sister for their parental home who knows how many years ago. She gifted the little framed script to me and my husband about 30 years ago.ReplyDelete
The words of mine are slightly different, and I'm sure there are many different variations out there. Mine reads :
"Lord, I shall be verie busie today. I may forget Thee, but do not Thou forget me."
and it was attributed to Lord Jacob Astley as a prayer before the Battle of Edgehill in 1642.
I love your old cupboard, it is fabulous! How fun!ReplyDelete
