Every sewing room must have a sturdy cutting surface, so years ago Dave helped me get a large cutting area made out of a large slab of MDF (medium density fiberboard for all you non-construction types) set on top of two inexpensive ready-made lower cabinet modules, complete with drawers. I have a large cutting mat on top and it works perfectly.
But where are the gadgets? All over the place! In drawers, hanging up, on shelves. Here are my latest finds.
|I really didn't NEED a new rotary cutter, but this one is sweet! New and improved.|
|Now I didn't need any more tiny scissors, but these were on sale and I couldn't resist.|
|I have used a ziplock bag for years attached with duct tape to contain serger fabric and threads.|
|I have this right behind my serger to hold the garbage from my big sewing machine. Still, do you see the threads on the carpet?|
|Here is my main garbage container. It fills up quickly with card making stuff as well. I did sell my rubber stamps but I still make cards and have to cut them down to size. Hence, a full garbage container.|
|Here is yet another spot to stuff the junk. I have no excuse for making a mess in here!|
|These are about 2 1/2" x 2" mini Asian kimonos (3 of them) on a piece of white satin that will be the topper for a brown hinged box that has a place to insert these under glass. Love machine embroidery!!|
I guess I should get back to my sewing room. I still have one thing that I know I will finish tonight!
|A little wine lasts me all night and I have even been known to forget to finish it. But only a little wine. I wouldn't want to stitch through my finger!!|
