As I've continued to look through the plastic storage bins and sort through what to keep and what to cull, I find interesting tidbits from the past. I've stored scraps and small blocks in plastic bags that I'm setting aside for more hearts or small projects of pieced and embellished items. The "heart basket" overflowed, and I'm sorting things out a bit.
Hearts in progress.
They make nice pin cushions, too
Buttons and other embellishments litter my sewing table,
and must be swept out of the way in order to sew.I look through a lot of pictures of craft spaces, and although I love seeing those perfectly designed or beautifully decorated studios, the ones that feel like "me" are the ones in absolute disarray. You know, the ones with fabric and tools scattered about by crafters in the process of some creative project.
While a beautiful room is one of my dreams, the truth is that I will always be pulling stuff out to audition and leaving it for a while in case I change my mind. And I will almost always be working on more than one project at a time.
If I can just manage to get things more easily within reach, get some shelves, and a new table--things would be greatly improved!
