Fresh


Several hours of sorting, moving furniture, and filling a black trash bag to the brim has yielded what feels like a brand new sewing room.


My threads are now up on a shelf where they won't be in danger of falling over every time my sewing table gets bumped.


Fabrics are once again neatly sorted by color in the cabinet beside my subtle shrine to Diet Coke.


And I've finally hung my portable design wall up on the actual wall where it's now showcasing my envelope blocks from Patchwork, Please! Those of you following me on Instagram have seen a few of these, and I've been able to do more in the past week. I'm taking some of the blocks from that book and putting them together in what I'm calling a Desktop Medallion Quilt. It's been fun to tackle a long term project again, watching all the pieces come together a bit at a time.

There's nothing like having a clean sewing room. It makes everything feel fresh and gets my creativity going. Which is why my fingers are just itching to get off this computer and back on my sewing machine...
