Happy Sunday! I finished my Mini Swoon Quilt this week--it is now hanging in my reorganized sewing room.
I also finished my Christmas Patchwork Swoon top today! I used Kate Spain's Northwoods fabrics along with some Bonnie and Camille fabrics. It does not scream Christmas, but it looks so pretty.
The light aqua is a Kona called Iced Frappe that I found at Joann's. I still need to figure out my borders, but I want to put minky on the back to make it extra cozy for Christmas cuddling 2017.
My sewing room reorganization is pretty much done, so here are some pictures. Behind my door, I have this antique and very rustic ladder I have some quilts displayed on.
Next is my comfy chair. I would like to replace this eventually with a different colored chair maybe aqua/black/gray, but this is a good size and I stole it from my guest room years ago, so it was a freebie. I do need to make a new lap quilt eventually with some of my B&C stash. I use my vintage sewing box as a side table and my Journey of a Quilter is on the wall.
My scraps are organized by color in rolling carts underneath my sewing table. My OCD hubby thinks I should replace these with cube storage and bins that would hide the mess better, but I would rather spend the money on new fabric!
Here is the top of my cutting table with a huge cutting mat, my rulers, a vintage sewing machine cabinet drawer, a three-tiered galvanized server, cracker jars, and some mini quilts. The cabinet above is recycled from my kitchen--I want to paint it the same aqua as my ironing station, but my hubby thinks it is a bad idea...I will have to keep working on him!
Here are some of my mini quilts displayed near my cutting table. Many of them were blocks from B&C's Snapshots quilt along from 2015.
Of course, here is the ironing station that started everything. The Wal had four more galvanized tubs when I went grocery shopping this morning. They are huge and have rubber pads on the bottoms to prevent scraping up my pretty cabinet.
Do you see my flying pig? My mom and dad gave him to me for Christmas and he was lime, but my hubby painted him to match everything--I need to add some wings!
On this side of the room, I rearranged my thread in the corner and have another recycled kitchen cabinet above.
Here is my new Mini Swoon and inspiration board.
On my sewing machine table, I have this galvanized organizer with my pins in half pint jars and my ironing sprays. Underneath is my rolling cart that holds my Singer Featherweight and my traveling sewing supplies.
To the left of my sewing machine table, I have this old computer armoire full of UFOs and WIPs. I thought about getting rid of this, but then I would have to figure out what to do with my TV and it is great storage!
This is the small walk in closet. Fabric is stored in tubs on each side of my bookshelf.
Here is the last bit of my 12x12' room with my new Moda Sampler Block Shuffle, my heater/fake wood stove, and my vintage picnic basket. I would like to recover my office chair to coordinate and get a new trashcan, but I am pretty satisfied with my updated sewing room.
I am going to spend the evening quilting the border on the Salt Box Houses Quilt for Slow Sunday Stitching
Now that I am super organized in my sewing room, I should be getting more done!
