Babetoo, just gave me a great idea.

I'm thinking I could keep my sewing machine set up and make a table to cut out patterns. It might get too hot up there but the windows all open so I could get a cross breeze. Maybe I can start sewing again. Worth looking into.
You just gotta have a dedicated sewing room! You'll get so much more accomplished by just having it already set up.

The attic will be perfect for your sewing room! I'm excited for you! I love having my own room to escape to, sometimes I even sew! Rofl!

I know that dd has designs on the space but it is a big space and she is gone all day long. The more I think about this the more I like the idea. Right now it is just a big unfinished room (whole house big) but it does have a solid floor and electrical already wired up to it. Yup, I am definately getting ideas. DH is going to hate this...he thinks I have too many ideas already :0

my sewing machine is always out, in my computer/sewing room. all supplies are right next to it in sorta hutch. have set of plastic drawers, with needles, pins etc. i have a small ironing board i can leave up when i sew. the room is not big enough for my large cutting table. i like to set it up and leave in living room when i have a big project. like to see tv while i cut etc. just me here and i don't care. it frees up the dining room table. though i do use the table it for smaller projects with the cardboard table cover for sewing.

was looking at the pattern i wanted to use for the easter dresses. is pretty much just for toddlers. so on line i went, going to cobble two patterns together for aubrey. lilly is the toddler. they will match close enough, i think.

Since I live alone, I elected not to have a dining table, but put a computer desk there under the hanging light and keep my sewing machine on it.

I made a cute cover for the sewing machine just by folding over a pillow sham.

I have no excuse not to do something with it, usually only having to change thread.

I know, I'll take the cover off it and see if that doesn't nag me into getting some stuff done.


I need to add some elastic to a couple of pairs of shorts. Since losing weight, I've walked out of them.

Fortunately only when I was home alone.

I even have elastic.

I made the cutest cozy for my favorite large tumbler. I made it with a bottom and up the sides with a pretty soft yellow.

By chance, I had a string of leafs made in a darkish green, which just fit around the top of the cozy, now imagine that with a cute ladybug button added with a plastic twist tie.

I love it when something uses me to create itself like that. It was just like I was only along for the ride.
