A Stitch or Two Here and There

This morning I cut out my first block for Judy's Star BOM. Several people have their block done already. Check them out.

I washed the fabric Saturday and did not finish ironing it until this morning.

I have it all laid out beside my machine and ready to stitch. I hope to get it done today.

I am slowly moving things from the basement to the second floor. I am going to enjoy having my studio upstairs......... Much brighter and looking out the window at the treetops is much preferred to looking at a cement block wall.

I got the Duchess set up on an old army field desk. I have a small three drawer rolling cart to keep supplies in. Hmmm.....that would also be a great place to keep the Leader Ender pieces I am working on.

A folding table under the eaves for cutting. I have not decided yet if I am going to get something to raise the legs or not. My Alto's Cutter is on the left. I am still learning how to use it to the best advantage. I was delighted to find it at half the price from a friend that did not use it often and wanted to get rid of it.

The Janome is on the other wall. I can move it to the cutting table when I machine quilt. On that small desk it is all set up for regular sewing. Another small plastic rolling cart holds thread and other things needed for that machine.

This is the view looking from the cutting table to the ba k of the room. I will probably move the ironing board somewhere else and I am thinking of setting up the Duke (Singer 99) somewhere in the room for paper piecing.

There is still lots of things to be sorted and brought upstairs but I am hoping to keep fewer projects in the actual sewing room.


  1. Looks like a great room to me and I just know you are going to create many beautiful things in there. I have not gotten my fabrics yet for Judy's BOM, but I do now what I want to get.

  2. It looks like things are coming together nicely, and the room is so sunny and cheerful. I can see spending many happy hours in there (and if you are like me, a few frustrated ones, lol).

  3. I too moved out of the basement and have windows to see out--I seem to get much more sewing done! Your sewing room is starting to take shape and look very comfortable!


Thank you for your comment.......
