My daughter is visiting this week, and I asked her if she would be willing to give me some ideas on what to do to my sewing room so it would be organized and cleaned up a bit better. Then I asked her if she would be willing to help me with some of her ideas. I honestly feel like I've been on an HGTV makeover. We took down a small table that I had at the end of the table with the blue cutting mat to the left. I tend to "fill up" any horizontal surface I have, so it was just used to stack things. We moved my bookshelf over a bit so it is easier to get into the closet, and the drawer units that were on that wall are now underneath the cutting table. Each drawer in the two drawer units to the left of the cutting table holds a project that I have started. The drawers under the cutting table hold strips that are 1", 1 1/2", 2 1/2" and 5". I have projects I've started in the basket and tins on top of the drawer units. All of my fabric has been moved out of this room to a closet in the loft area. There is a skylight there which makes the area bright even on a cloudy day, and it is really nice for pulling fabrics. We had a busy but very productive day, and I am really happy with the results.
On the sewing front, this is what I've been working on. I've been in a crochet mood lately.
I bought this pink and brown yarn awhile ago, and after I worked on the afghan I realized that it was going to be a lot wider than it was long so I did this.....
I started over and made the afghan more narrow so it would end up more the size that could be used on a twin bed. It took awhile to unwind the yarn from the longer afghan, but I really like the finished afghan.
I love the pink and brown variegated yarn in this afghan. All of this yarn came from my stash.
I also made this little baby blanket from yarn that I had in my stash.
I hope you are all finding some time to do some stitching!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today.
