Confession time... my sewing area was a MESS!
I cannot believe I am about to show you how bad I let my sewing area get. I'm super embarrassed, but it is what it is. I was supposed to have a studio addition built on my small house this spring, to accommodate all things Resweater, but those plans are put on hold. In this economy, I feel like I should hold off for now, in case we need to live off that money. My husband has been laid off once before, so we'd like to err on the side of caution. I will make do with what I have, and I am grateful for what I already have.
I do well with putting things in their place, but when things don't have a place (like my "temporary" sewing setup), chaos ensues. This was our dinner table, and became my "temporary" sewing area. Note the project bags stacked on the chairs... sigh. So embarrassed, but here it is...
That table (it was somebody else's "craft table" that they were throwing out 10 years ago) was a bit large for the area anyway, and I always wanted a nice little round table to eat at for this space, so I bought this set (table & 2 chairs... the other 2 chairs were ours) off of Craigslist today. Much better, eh? ;)
This embarrassing mess #2 was my "temporary" (notice how that word keeps ending up in quotes ;) ) overflow area... 2 card tables, and a bunch of small bins. That got insanely out of hand.
The formerly "temporary" sewing table, formerly dinner table, is now my sewing table. It is not temporary, so this is how it will stay. Ahhhh... much better working conditions!
I will not be creating any tutorials of my own (don't worry... I will still be having Tutorial Tuesdays, but just with other people's tutorials) for a while. I will getting through all the projects & materials I have already started, and complete them all. This should make for some good 'What I've Been Working on Wednesday' posts!
