My Little Sewing Corner
When I switched up my desk area, I rearranged my (hand) sewing spot as well. My studio side of the room had all the furniture basically pushed against the wall, which made the floorspace for projects long and narrow. Once I eliminated the corner desk, I knew it was the perfect place for a cozy sewing spot, AND it allowed me more floorspace to work on larger projects. Whenever I'm hand stitching animals, this is where you will find me.
Our bedroom has an issue with lighting since it is such a long space, so I bought a hanging light to suspend above the sewing area. Now I don't have to constantly move a lamp over or strain my eyes. Honestly, I should have done this years ago. It's so much more motivating when you can actually SEE what you are doing. My stuffing stays in this old cedar chest that was passed down to me from my mother, and I hung some of my favorite art on the wall. I left a few blank spaces so I can add more as I find it.
I've spent a good little chunk of time here lately as I'm speedily stitching up ornaments. My goal is to have them in the shop the Monday after Thanksgiving (Cyber Monday). I'll keep you posted on all that. For now, back to hand stitching!
