This area is designated for paper projects. There are blank tags, paper scissors, small bits of ribbon and loose buttons in the pretty containers on my blue painted table.
I love using old picnic baskets for storage and always grab them up when I see them at thrift stores and garage sales. These are used to store yarn, wool and felt and various stuffing products for pincushions, ornaments and pillows.
This drop leaf table is another thrift store find. This is the first time I've used it in my studio and I don't know why that is. Having a table that extends and then folds down so easily is a great way to add tempory work space when needed.
I have shared my farm table sewing station before. I love having a large work space dedicated to sewing projects. I know it may look a bit helter skelter but it is actually really quite organized.
My current favorite fabrics are stacked here for inspiration along with projects that I am currently working on. I keep my unfinished work separated in small plastic totes so that I can see what I'm supposed to be finishing before I start anything new.
Of all the crafts I do, I think I love sewing the most. Everything from choosing the fabric to the finished product brings me such joy and a sense of satisfaction. Creating something useful and pretty for people I love makes me happy.
If I could get away with it I would spend hours behind my machine. Those days are rare now but I know someday in the future I'll have more of them. For now I steal away for whatever time I can, sometimes waking in the wee hours of the morning when the house is quiet. Those moments are just for me and I am conscious to appreciate them.
I have one more post tomorrow. I'll be sharing the business and packaging side of my studio plus a few of my current projects.
