I know that most of you have a designated sewing space and can make a mess as big as you want and hide it from everyone just by closing the door, but not me!!! I sew in my kitchen! So, since I sew in my kitchen, where else can I store stuff for immediate use but in the dining room, right? This is what I'm seeing lately, and it's not a pretty sight. I really need to get going and clean up this mess, but it seems I always have some sort of project going where I either need those fabrics, or have to dig for more in the basement which (naturally) get added to this pile. Just lately I made the most awesome thing (which you will see in about 10 days and I'll be telling you more about that at another time, lest I spill the beans because I have such a big mouth), and because of that, I can't go onto what I originally planned to do. Oh...so many secrets!!! So this mess will have to stay this way a bit longer. :)
So, you wanna see why I don't sew in my basement? Could you give up this view with 15 feet of natural light coming through and skylights above? See.....what'd I tell you??? I love it here everyday!!! It makes me so happy to be this close to nature. Oh.....I must also say....that I am replacing the 1980's kitchen set you see here. Although this is the absolute most comfortable set in the whole world, I finally listened to my daughter and ordered a new set today which is keeping more like those in today's generation. Now to wait the 4-6 weeks until I get it.
