Sewing Room

Hi guys!  remember me?  

Sorry I have been MIA for the past few days.  We made it to DC safely and I haven't had consistent internet access up until this point.  We have been unpacking and settling into our new place.  It is gorgeous here.  I can't get enough of these beautiful Victorian homes.  While I am loving our new place for the next 6 weeks, I will miss my sewing room and sewing machine desperately.  I don't even care if that makes me sound like a loser.  So I thought I'd show you what it looks like.  There are still a few things I want to add to it, but I'll have to wait till I'm back home for some finishing touches.

Lets be honest.  My husband spends more time studying at our kitchen table than he does at his desk in the "office".  So I'm just going to refer to it as my sewing room from now on.  Here is a little peek at my section of the room.  The opposite wall has another desk full to the brim with big fat law books.  My space is much less intimidating I think...

It usually looks similar to this except with scraps of fabric and thread everywhere.  And my ironing board is permanently out now.

my ever growing thread collection.  I think I'm going to need a bigger jar...

I made the chevron curtains from this fabric.  I love them extra long and pooled at the bottom.  The framed prints are actually some 12 x 12 Amy Butler paper.  The painting I inherited from my great Aunt and I just painted the frame white.



I use my mom's old Juki serger.  It's ancient, but runs like a dream.  And I loved the fabric for the throw pillow I made on the chair.  I scored that for less that $1 per yard at fabric.com.



My lovely stack of Domino's.  It kinda makes me sad still that the pile has stopped growing...


I am quickly filling my sewing notebook with drawings, measurements, calculations, and step by step instructions.  It is just faster for me to jot it down first, then type it all out.  You should see how many numbers and calculations are in that thing! And I never thought math would come in handy...
