Honest Sewing Room

Just a quick little post for anyone who thought that the clean studio space I showed last month is how my space always (or even often) looks like:


I haven't even had a chance to try my new Panasonic cordless iron! You can almost see it, half way hidden behind a shirt that's waiting for me to mend it. But there's some encouraging things here in the clutter; 3 boxes of rulers for my shop, the iron, cashews that I have successfully hidden from my children, and my new book by Brene Brown, Rising Strong . Tomorrow after church I am going to snuggle down in my bed and finish reading it.


I hope this weekend that you get time to use your heads, hearts, and hands for those things that give you joy.

  1. I have followed the transformation of your sewing space this summer and like it very much, tidy or messy. But most of all I like what you create there and your willingness to share! I was interested to see that you are spending time with a book this weekend. I am doing the same --- with Carol McLeod's new book, Refined. Excellent! Sometimes a little break from sewing is good for the creative brain!

    1. Thanks Gloria! Yes, sometimes I need the break from quilting projects. And I did get some time to read on my bed. A real luxury for a mom with little kids!

  2. I love these posts from bloggers about WHERE they sew and not just WHAT they sew. I become energized with organization ideas, I have self-guilt lifted for my own untidiness during works in progress. Most of all, I feel welcomed into their space because of the glimpse I have been allowed. It makes the quilter a person for me, not just a mass producer of fabric products! Thank you for letting me peek through a keyhole into your domain.

    1. Thanks Diane. I like to keep it real. I've seen a sign online that says, "I'm creative, you can't expect me to be tidy too!"
