Up until today, I have been sewing on my dining room table. The more I got into doing jobs for people I know, the more things overtook my house. Many Many days, our table looked like this:
but usually worse!
My family has been very patient, but being a family that enjoys sitting around the table together, we began to miss it a little. They all began to grow tired of pulling chairs over and squeezing around the kitchen island. My husband finally said enough is enough!
Since my kids never play with toys anymore, I overtook the playroom. We cleaned it out, set in our new floors, and it sat empty for a couple of months. Why? Because I move at a snails pace sometimes!
Finally the time has come!! I went to Ikea a couple of days ago, and yesterday, my husband slaved away for me, and today, I was happily sewing in my room!
Not only did I get a new room, but I am feeling very blessed, it's like Christmas all over again, I GOT A NEW MACHINE!
I have been sewing on my Singer Curvy for about 4 years or so now, but as I get more serious about my sewing adventures, it was clear to me that I had to step it up a notch.
Cluck Cluck Sew last week, I took the plunge. What a difference this machine is making as I try to quilt out a king size quilt! There is no way I would be so happy about doing this on my old baby. But don't worry, I will be keeping her around to teach some cute little girls how to sew. My first student will be here on Sunday to dive into some sewing with me. My kids love to tool around on my machine once in a while too, so I am sure Miss Curvy has many many miles left in her. Isn't it funny how we get attached to our machines?
For my cutting table, I chose to put two dressers back to back. I wanted my table to be a little taller, so I don't have to bend to cut. I really put a lot of thought into how I wanted my room, but will probably shuffle things around a few more times before I really get it set.
I hope I have many happy sewing hours in here, Now I am curious, where do you sew? Are you lucky enough to have a space for it, or does your family have to be patient with you like mine was?
Thanks for stopping by and letting me show my joy!
