A day in the studio...

Yesterday I had a whole unexpected day in my sewing studio, because my plans got postponed until next week!

I spent a couple of hours working on a custom order childhood memories quilt first. Then I felt I deserved some selfish studio time, so I rearranged my studio!

I packed away one of the large folding tables I had out and put two cabinet model sewing machines in the NW corner where it had been. I had been wanting to do this for a while. My plan is to set up each machine for a specific WIP. I jump from thing to thing and this way I won't have to pack away one thing to work on another, or re-thread my machine.

I also put my ironing board in the center of the room under the light fixture where I can plug it into the roof for easier use and less cord tangling.

Then I made about 20 reusable shopping bags from old sheeting that I wanted to use up. I will donate these to the thrift shop at the high school for teen moms where I volunteer twice a week. I have about 20 more bags to sew later this week which means then I didn't have to find a spot to store all that fabric I didn't want.


None of this was what I planned to do in my sewing studio today!!!! I had two paper pieced quilt blocks to pattern test!!! That did not get done. Oh well, baby steps is better than no steps!


  1. We are easily distracted! But you did get some wonderful things done. Good job.

  2. well, any day in the studio is a good one. I just love all your turquoise furniture! How energizing it is. LEeAnna

  3. your room is so organised wish I could plug the iron into the ceiling as yes the cord gets in the way. Liking the large turquoise trolly is it ikea I want one! Would love a room too but I spread allover the house I suppose that is why I spend more time searching for things than doing!
