Shameful, isn't it? My sewing area is a hot mess. In my defense the trains are put up there by my youngest. I am trying a new work layout and it is just not working for me. Stuff is much harder to keep organized.
But when it gets all clean and tidy I found a few things...like this little USA Pottery mini teapot (?). My cow shaped creamer got broken and I needed something else to keep extra water for my thirsty rowenta. This holds much more (even though it is not as cute as the little cow was).
and I found a sewing machine drawer that was in beautiful shape for $1. I even found that houseplant in it for free on the side of the road. A neighbor was getting rid of it, so I'm trying to root it. I can't wait to clean up my space so I can find a great use for this drawer. Suggestions welcome!
And I found a Slice for 34.99! After a LOT of help from Darlene the Sewcal gal, I was able to get it to work on fabric! She is posting a tutorial soon but if you need help before then just email me and I will be glad to "pay it back" by helping you out.
The slice was a really serendipitous find since I am smack dab in the middle of a project where I am cutting out tons of letters...this is a moda bakeshop project in the works using Kate Spain's Flurry.
