I think the best part of our house is the blending of Zach & I together that I see around the whole place. We share a desk area, we share a workshop space (what will be my ceramics studio & his woodworking area) in the garage, and you know those other parts of the house couples share. There's a third little work area though that will be all my own - my sewing table.
I'm super excited to find the perfect little table to sit under the window in the spare bedroom - I may have found the best one at Big Lots but we'll see. I'll also use this room - because the light is so lovely - to photograph our vintage stuff, but for now I'm just day dreaming of my to-sew list.
You may think I want to take on a giant project like a quilt or a dress or something but no.....I like to keep it simple! Just a few little things & just a few little stitches. If I tackled a quilt it would never get done....too much work! I'm a quick fix kinda gal!
a maxi skirt or two - I feel I may need a few in a few colors. Maybe a few in jersey knit & maybe a few in a different fabric.
more aprons - I used to sew aprons right after I got my sewing machine at the end of college. I made one for a friend, one for me, & had plans for some for the shop but only ever got one totally finished. I really want to dedicate a weekend to busting out 5 or 10 & get them in the Five One Six shop.
hem the living room curtains - the one on the door is a bit too long...so it needs to be taken up more than a couple of inches.
sewing placemat keep all thingy - I want to make a little placemat type of thingy that also has some pockets that hang off the side of the table to hold bits of stuff. My original reasoning behind this was because I was planning on remaking a TV tray as a tiny sewing desk. But now I think I'm going bigger for my table...we shall see.
pretty sewing machine cover - right now my little sewing machine lives in her carrying case which has protected her from the move but when she's on display I don't want her to get all dusty so a little cover is in order.
a skirt for my table - Because I really like this pin!
nice curtains for the kitchen - I need some sort of curtain combo that will look good over the sink & on the window of the deck door. This house has too many doors & too many windows! Too many windows is a good thing though.
a little ironing board cover - my original sewing desk idea was inspired by this pin. My sewing desk would do double duty as an ironing board. But what about ironing & sewing?!?! This ironing board TV tray can slip behind the table or hide somewhere else or be extra space. Love it!
Right now bits & pieces of my sewing collection are around the house but slowly they are making it into one place and then slowly getting into the spare room. I can't wait to have a few little projects going on. I just can't sit still & it's apparent if I need three work areas!!
Do you sew? What projects do you want to work on? Are you like me & need a million work areas? Am I just crazy?!
