So I decided I needed to organize my craft room after seeing some posts on sewing rooms and some Pinterest browsing. The one thing I love about my craft room is I put all my favorite things in there to display that most people put away and only bring the out at the specific holiday time.
I keep. my snowman collection on a shelving section along with their Santa friends. I pin up my sewing maching stitch sampler so I can look at it when I need a fancy stitch. I post up drawings from my kids when they were little. My Halloween quilts....you get the idea. So it looks a bit cluttered, but I worked so hard on some of theses and to box them up all year is not appealing to me.
Now I really spend most of my time sewing downstairs at the kitchen table so I don't spend a ton of time in there so I don't get tired of seeing my snowmen. The other space hog is my inspiration quilting frame and Viking machine. I will have to admit that I did not use it at all this last year. (I was assigned an extra assignment to cover for a coworker that was going to be on leave for 6 weeks that turned into over a year and just never had enough time/energy to start a project).
I also have a twin bed for when my daughter comes to stay. She only comes once or twice a year and I can not figure out a way to hide that bed anywhere else in the house. I would love some ideas on this one. I might move the quilting cram forward so I can stand the bed behind it sideways. Then I can add some table space.
That was rather long winded to get to my UFO list.....so in my cleaning I found my snowman quilt that needs to be quilted and have all the buttons sewn on. I think over 100 buttons.
The makings of a valentine wall hanging that is a very cute panel with a pieced border.
A felt pillow to be hand sewn, along with a felt table topper.
A painted plate that just needs the vines and final details painted and varnished. Didn't find the pattern that goes with it yet.
2 lap quilts that need batting and backings.
Many punch needle projects that need framing. Need some ideas...Pinterest??
I intend to get these going in the year 2013 and will start with loading one on the quilt frame this week after inventory. I have to go take a nap now to prep myself for 3 overnighters of inventory bliss. I make it sound like hell but I do love the process but getting 100 plus people to get it counted right is sometimes quite a chore, times that by 2 and you know what my next 3 nights will be like. Did I mention I do like inventory?
Happy counting, I mean sewing, K
