Now that all the wonderful fun luv fests are over and done with, at least on my part!
I can get down to my new sewing/art/craft/play room. I am so very much in love with
my room! It just makes me happy thinking of it. I wish I were a more organized person,
but it just ain't happening! So I live with what I am and move on. As long as I know where
to find what I want, I'm ok. And as soon as I get all my labels on stuff, I'll know where
everything is. Cause right now, I just know if its in the room or not. Or maybe what side
of the room it might be on. But I am making progress.
Wish I had more wall space. I even moved some of my favorite and newest crosses in here so I can see them. Cant really see it here, but on the door ledge under the crosses are antique thimbles. I love thimbles too! I have hundreds, and still buy them when I see them in antique stores or junk shops. I love wooden spools too, thread or empty. Just in case anyone wants to send me a present or surprise or something, these little suggestions will help.
And every sewing machine has her own shelf where she lives. Standing watch over her court. Being beautiful and regal and old and broken. But loved all the same! I wouldn't throw you out just because you were old and broken!
The purple shelves have all my beading stuff. Not that I bead anymore, but if I wanted to, I could. And it is amazing how many times someone wants a little something that I just happen to have in that cabinet. Really comes in handy, like when making bridal veils for instance. Handy!
All the boxes in the bottom of the "green room" are small fabric scraps. 10 boxes, all
sorted by color. A scrappy quilters dream! Please, come fill your dream!!! Or your basket,
or your box. Please!The shelf over the window is my fun, keep forever stuff. I need more of those shelves. I still have all that stuff in boxes not gone thru yet.
crazy and blind. The top shelf is boxes sorted by cut out quilts, ready to be sewn, by
someone, anyone, you? Call me, lets talk.
The drawers on the bottom are also sorted fabrics. 2 drawers Christmas, 2 fall and other
holiday, 1 baby quilts, 2 antique fabric (oooo I just had a thrill!) 1 for aprons, 1 of antique
quilt squares and patterns (another thrill!) and other various stuff. Remember, I have a
lot of stuff.
The rack on the right is finished quilts. The boxes on the left are large pieces of
fabric that I will never use for anything more than drop cloths when I decide I have had
enough of the UT wall and paint it turquoise! Actually I will donate it all to the Lutheran
church for the ladies to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. And the fan, well,
I am one hot mama...
My beautiful new computer is right behind my sewing machine. So I can blog, stitch,
post, snip, picture, pin, check weather, stitch. O love it!!! love it!!! love it!!!
I also have 2 tables set up around mine so there is room for 3 or 4 more women to be
sewing and or cutting out at the same time. HINT! HINT! HINT! And room for some
dancing at the same time!
May 2nd come one come all and bring a girlfriend!
It is a bow tie quilt of my favorite colors and everyone coming to the party will sign a light colored block. Haven't decided yet if it will be auctioned off at the end of the night, or if it will be second prize in the raffle drawing. All suggestions welcome! After all this is our 5th anniversary party and I really want it to be a huge one. So if you have any ideas, please let me know!
