Fun in my fabric world....

Now, back to the sewing room...

Determination...that was the theme of this weekend.
With visitors gone, a hush has fallen over Chez Cardy. Some extra week and a difficult client week has left me a little flat. So to fix that, I made a list, and have been checking things off it.
The garden (or the dirt aspiring to one day become a garden) has seen the addition of a pear tree on the footpath, with some flowers at its base...the sweet little girl next door loves it! I have also recently planted a weeping cherry in my front yard and a crabapple out the back. Give them a couple of years and they will be lovely. No photos as small sticks aren't overly interesting!
Sorry to be boring, but here is a tidy room...
with a new fabric covered notice board and a mini quilt from a friend...
and another mini quilt from Lancaster, Pennsylvania (and a spot for my sewing buddy).
But the sewing room has been a hive of activity...sorting, storing, labelling...and the odd gasp when I find something long forgotten! Funny, it is a year this week since we left our old home and many of our belongings have spent most of this time in storage whilst renovations were finished. Each box unpacked has been like seeing old friends again!
I even tidied next to my sewing chair!
The positive to all this sorting has been a desire to really get in there and do some serious stitching.
After an arduous eighteen months, it is nice to feel my stitchy spark coming back!

Your sewing room looks so nice and organized but I hope it is soon filled with the mess of creativity!

Our sewing friends always need special places. :o) I always feel rejuvenated after a good sort out. Hope the fabric is flying soon!

Would you like to visit the states and tidy my sewing space for me? Your's looks like an invitation for creativity!

Vivian said...

There's nothing boring about a tidy sewing room. It's inspirational and a hope for all of us -- even those of us without a separate dedicated sewing room. We can hope for one some day. Your room looks like a happy place for stitching.

Nothing like playing with your sewing "stuff" to get you motivated ....your sewing room looks fantastic! I was pleased when the " sticks" I put in the back garden got blossoms a couple of weeks ago...phew....I didn't buy dead things! Hope you can continue ticking things off your list...have a great week x

My sewing room is not for public consumption. It is truly the greatest unmanageable mess on Earth. We missed you on Friday night but I can see that you weren't bored. It looks great! You are now in high demand for your super organizing skills in my sewing room any time you like. You do like a challenge don't you!!???

Sinta Renee said...

Wonderfully sweet sewing room! I'm glad you were able to get settled in and get inspired to sew again!

Jenny said...

It all looks ready for some serious work now. Good luck with your sewing.
