I honestly do not know how anyone keeps a sewing space tidy. This week, I decided to give up! The pictures below are actually not bad. I'm hoping the mess is because I don't have a dedicated sewing space. C is moving out in September and I'll probably take his room over for my own space at some point. I hope that cures most of this organization issue - of course I'll have to get organized to begin with! Oh who am I kidding? It's going to be a challenge for me to stay organized anywhere. Frankly, I think I'm a messy quilter!
I'll have a small walk in closet in that room where most of this can go. I've been thinking about room setup but don't have any concrete ideas. There are so many lovely sewing spaces imore here and here) in blogland to inspire me. I could look at them for hours! There is carpet in the room which I'm not thrilled about. With the expense of buying some furniture and stuff (which will take some time as it is) the flooring isn't up for replacement.
Today's mail had some goodies for me! I won a $100 gift card from Amazon at work. I rarely buy books for me so I decided to blow it all on books. I'm going to spend a few hours curled up in bed with these!
Third attempt at my block with Y Seams. It's not perfect but I'm happy with the progress. The Y Seams were easier after some remedial instruction and the part of the block that lined up into the square came out better. This also was big enough to be cut down to the correct size. The last one was too small. Still to work on: those blasted points coming together in the middle! I realized later that the patterning on the fabric should have been mixed up. Overall, I feel like I conquered enough of this block to be satisfied.
