It's finally Friday - and you know what that means! It's time to get our whoop whoop on!! Are you ready? I am! So let's get started....
With the coming of the new year, I always get the urge to clean and organize my sewing studio. For the past several years, I haven't been able to do that, so it just kept getting worse and worse - but this year I did! And since I finished it earlier this week, I'm really doing some happy dancing on that nice clean floor.....
So now I'll take you on a virtual tour of my nice clean sewing studio...
As you come into the studio, to the right is a bookcase my husband installed that holds my antique sewing machines and quilting magazines.
My sewing table, made of a hollow-core door stretched across two stock cabinets from Home Depot, has a cutting board on one side and my sewing machine on the other. There's seating on each side, too! Great for when Lilli wants to sew with me... The storage tubs on the shelf at the end hold pieces cut to standard sizes.
This is the space behind my sewing machine chair. The top of the bookcases has been converted into an ironing station. The tubs below contain UFOs, kits, patterns, and groups of fabric that go together. I will be turning those fabric groupings into kits soon.
Here's the space under the cutting table. You can see the templates hanging on the back of the closet door. Very convenient and easy to reach when needed!
And here's my fabric wall! Cubicles storage shelves are a perfect fit for two stacks of fabric folded around a 5" ruler.
And now for the last side of the room - in and around Jolene, my long arm Artistic 26 quilter...
Here you can see the tubs of scraps neatly organized by color underneath the front side...
...and the IKEA storage shelves tucked under the back side.
This is on the entrance wall, to the left as you walk in the door. It holds extra storage pieces, my long arm supplies, and extra pieces of batting. The storage bins at the back hold my Glide thread, all my precuts, and some quilt kits.
Here's a little better shot so you can see the storage unit better.
Behind the door, there is a shoe storage piece that holds my serger spools, sorted by color, and my quilting apron.
Behind the door is also a great place to hide an ironing board and a bolt of batting!
On the far wall, behind Jolene's frame, is this shelf, which holds some pieces that I have made. It's a pretty colorful spot and makes me happy to see!
And then there's my inspiration wall behind the quilt frame! I've got a whiteboard on this wall with a calendar. I can list any projects with deadlines on it for easy viewing. This is also a great space to hang up inspirational sayings and things I love!
Now that it's all cleaned up, it's so pleasant to create in here! It was a lot of work, but so worth it.
Can I get a whoop whoop??
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you dance a happy dance?
Share - we want to dance right along with you...
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until midnight Sunday.
Hope to see you there!
