I’m eager to sew more -- really ready. I’ve spent a lot of time on the computer this year -- a fact that’s reflected in the arrangement of my studio. My computer table has been in a prime position and easily accessed. Extra papers, packages and put-aways have accumulated on the neglected sewing table, further securing the table’s second billing. I have a brand new Bernina Artista 640 that I’ve only used twice so far (to make this and these) and a complete set of Isacord thread that I have yet to unbox and find a place for. They’ve been nagging at me like bored and hungry children, “Play with me. Feed me.” Well, enough already! It’s time to rearrange my studio.
Okay, so I dropped what I was working on and spent a good chunk of the week shuffling furniture. I was hoping to find a configuration that would allow more workspace for sewing and better storage, yet make space for my computer to stay in the room. Sounds possible, right? But, days later, I’ve moved armoires and tables and a chest of drawers and I still haven’t figured it out! *so frustrating* We’ve been to several stores in pursuit of a tempting solution as well. In my mind now, the furniture options are waltzing around the room as I try to sort out the arrangement. Not the worst problem to have, true, but I have other things to do than spin in circles. That being said, I’ve decided to roost on it, at least for a couple of days -- let it be.
Also, let me add that the fabulous collection of thread comes from the ever-generous elinor (lowercase “e”). I swear I’ve won the mother-in-law lottery. She spoils me and then she spoils me again -- and so supportive! elinor is teaching her first online class over at Cloth Doll Connection -- now anyone in the world can see what the fuss is all about. Check out the class description here – flat fairies, indeed. Love you mom, thanks!
