Not much sewing time for me this week. We’re working on a giant basement room swap-er-oo right now, which includes all of my sewing stuff junk mess crapola supplies. It’s kind of scary to find out how much there really is in that room. Yikes. But I’ve actually been so excited to just DO IT because it forced me to clean out, inventory, (try not to want to throw-up at the thought of all that’s there), and get organized.
Everything has been relocated to a new room. (Can I just say that I realize how lucky I am to even have a space like this at all. Incredibly lucky. I do not take it for granted.) This room is snug, but I really like the location of this room – much more a part of the action for one thing. It’s right at the bottom of the stairs off the kitchen. I feel like I can keep a better pulse on what’s going on in the house from here. My other sewing space was in the basement, around two corners and far removed from any crisis. So I rarely felt I could work from there and as a result, my projects seemed to migrate all over the house. This space is going to be awesome.
Look how clean and organized it is already.
Oh wait. Maybe not. There is still much to go through and reorganize before things are functional, let alone pretty. But fortunately the process is fun.
The best part of this room are the built in shelves.
They were here when we bought the house a couple of years ago.
They are perfect for this. Fabric storage. It’s easily accessible and stays neat and tidy and lest dusty behind the doors. And I can still see the pretty colors through the glass. I love it! Thanks to whoever out there installed these babies. Little did they dream the amount of fabric they would hold. Probably the last thing on their mind, actually. (And this is again why I cringe at the thought of my neighbors reading this post. I mean who in their right mind needs that much fabric?)
I will promise to give a real tour when everything is neat and organized. I’m excited to actually have a sewing space (or what my husband calls “the place where the magic happens”) that I actually want to show to people. First time ever for me.
A BIG thanks for the sewing machine input in the lat post. It’s so much fun to hear the love out there for everyone’s sewing machines. Some great advice in those comments. THANK YOU!
