I'm Back in Business
I was finally able to paint the repaired wall in my studio this morning. That took all of 30 minutes. Then 30 minutes of drying time and I was ready to move back in. Two hours later I was back in business!
Here's a mini tour of sewing studio. First up is the closet. In here I have a plastic cart filled with my FQs. About 8 bins with various projects in them. Packages of batting, Tasha's work basket and my pieces of fabric greater than one yard on the hangers. The top shelf of closet holds two picnic baskets of other miscellaneous projects and my Christmas fabrics.
Next up is the new cubicle stand I bought last week. The wall to the right of the stand is the one that had the water damage and has to be repaired. In the baskets are the fabrics for the projects I'm currently working on. The wood boxes on the 3rd shelf hold my thread. The cases on the bottom shelf are binders I bought from Unikeep. They are sturdy plastic binders that are flat like boxes. I bought a 20 piece sampler of the binders for $50 and I still haven't filled all of them. So far all of my lessons from my Quilt University classes and internet patterns I have printed are in the binders on the left side.
My cutting table and scrap cart fill up the rest of the wall. For now I have a bookcase under the table holding some books, but I'm not happy with that bookcase. Someday I will find a better bookcase for all my books.
My sewing table sits between the two windows. Right now it's covered with the gifties I'm making for my retreat in 3 weeks. The table runner is made from an Ohio Star block swap I was in two years ago. The wood cabinet is from Ikea and holds the notions I need when sitting at the table: machine needles, marking pencils, snips, basting pins, rotary blades, you get the idea.
If you celebrate Easter tomorrow, have a blessed day. If you celebrate Passover, I hope you are having a blessed holiday too.
