I have been working on re-organizing my sewing studio for the past few days. I have a car load of stuff to go to the thrift store, mostly old patterns and fabric that I know I won't use. I have moved the sewing machine to the north side so I won't get such a glare from the sun in the mornings which is when I do most of my sewing. That meant I needed to move my design wall so it would be easier to see from the sewing machine. Then I moved the dyeing table to where the design wall used to be. Now I need to invest in some shelving or drawers for my fabrics and other odds and ends. I need one more plastic drawer set under the shelf that the serger is sitting on and then I'll move the boxes that are holding it up right now. I had one set of drawers that I thought would work but they ended up being about a half inch taller than the ones I bought at Wallmart.
This is the design and tools wall. I have actually done some quilting on Maggie's Farm but it's not going as fast as I would like. I am a bit stalled trying to decide what kind of quilting to put aronud the letters at the top. It will probably end up being meandering but I need to move on from that type of pattern soon.
This is the dyeing corner. I will put some shelving above the table to hold the dyes. I may replace the table as it is too low. The cupboard that is at the right side of the picture also has to go. The drawers are too big and it's too low. I want open shelves there with some sort of counter top. I have been checking the internet to see what is available. I wish we had an Ikea store near here.
The junk corner that needs some work. Here I have my silk painting stretchers, some quilt frame pieces, a bow that my grandson made me for my birthday when he was about 8 or 9 (I probably will never use it but I can't throw it away!) and yes, that is a digeridoo. I bought it as a souvenier the first time I went to Australia. I still have never been able to get a sound out of it.
There are also some books that need a bookshelf with more space between the shelves so the books can stand up and the Husqvarna sewing machine that the kids use when they come to sew. I guess organizing is always a work in progress.
