So happy indeed, to be back in a space I could call my own. My home has been in a state of construction since Spring'09. I was unusually patient waiting for my new sewing room to be completed. Just before Christmas my wish came true. My hubby must have sensed that his luck was running out and that I would soon go Mr. Hyde on him LOL. It's like that when I go for long periods without creating a little something. I don't remember taking any before pics, unfortunately. This room used to be half it's size. I chose a very light blue for the walls called mountain air by Behr. I especially like the wood floors and the the long table behind my Koala sewing table. It was made by my generous co-worker, Mike.
My poor loom which has become more of a display rack for various projects. Hope to weave a little something in 2010.
These three stockings are the first thing I made. They were a gift to my niece Tristan and her family. Hope you all like my sewing room.
I've always enjoyed creating things since I was a little girl. While my brother and sisters were out learning to ride bikes I would sit on a couch for hours making paper dolls and storing them in an envelope I stapled together out of construction paper. My first experience sewing was inspired by a book I ordered from a fundraiser in elementary school. With it's simple projects to sew, I chose to make an apron. My mother gave me an old garment to use for material. I sewed a square together forgetting to leave a small opening to turn it. I cheesed out and left it like that and attached a grosgrain ribbon on the edge for ties. I was so proud of that moment, ha ha. I've come a long way since then and my passion for cloth and creating continues. I enjoy making cloth dolls and like to dabble with whatever strikes my fancy. It's a journey.
