One bite at a time! I really had started all of this to make a walking space in the craziness that is my sewing room. I just wanted shelves! I realized after I painted and before I found and was able to get the right shelves that I needed to make this a place of calm of organization where I can work and not feel completely overwhelmed by not being able to find what I am looking for to start or finish projects. This will take longer than had been originally planned. The end result will be a much better space than one that is just thrown together for the sake of moving to cover a mess.
This week I have one design wall created. My last design wall was literally batting stapled to the wall. This one is a sheet of $10 drywall covered with white flannel and stapled to the back. It is 8ftx4ft. This weekend I will be making one that will be 8x8 for the other wall for larger projects or to have the ability to work on two ( or more) projects at once without putting things away to be forgotten about like these AMAZING Kate Spain blocks ( can you believe I had forgotten I started these) from the Aurifil Block of the Month from 2013! It is a free BOM and you can still have access to all of the block patterns on Auribuzz.
The mini quilts made it back up on the wall beside my ironing board to bring me joy!
At Home Goods I found this cute crate to store some of my Aurifil threads in! It is super cool since it will fit on my shelves and fits so many spools! This was my first visit to Home Goods and when I have more time I want to go back and see more of what they have to offer.
I am tackling the scrap monster this week too! This has to be my least favorite task but I am having a giveaway of this SCRAPTASTIC on my Instagram so if you want to enter just visit gogokim and leave a comment on the post with the scraps :) The scraps are Denyse Schmidt, Heather ropes, Tula Pink, Art Gallery...and so much more...Please feel free to also leave words of encouragement...this is HARD work!
