My house is old and way too big for us so I have two rooms to sew in, which is good and bad. The good is that I can really spread out and leave projects set up and ready to come back to. The bad is that I have a tendency to fill up open spaces, so the more space I'm given, the more stuff I pile up. (Before anybody refers me to a psychiatrist for hoarding, please know I have recently pledged to reduce my "stuffprint" by half and am making progress...) I have always found the creative process to be aided by chaos and prefer to have things within reach and visible; not tucked neatly away in drawers. But enough excuses already--- on to the pictures!
|My main sewing room. It makes the 'triangle' of cutting, sewing, and pressing.|
|My design wall is just a flannel sheet tacked to the wall.|
|Some of the sewing and quilting books.|
|My notions shelf.|
|Neutrals, yellows, polka dots, and collections.|
|The main stash shelf. Neatness is overrated.|
|The other room. The old Necchi in back is set up for punching holes in freezer paper patterns for paper piecing. I use the Bernina for zigzag and fancy stitching and free motion quilting. The Singer to the left is on its way to Craigslist.|
|My trusty old iron, which has a cloth cord and weighs a ton, but hasn't failed me yet.|
|A thread tableau. Most of my threads are cones, which I do keep tucked away as I am frequently knocking them over.|
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my sewing/creative space! I cant wait to see everybody else's! xoxo---Rozina D.
