A little sewing

I spent a lot of time in the studio this past weekend.  I had several bags "in process" for a couple of months and I just wanted to get them finished.  Some still need buttons but at this point I am happy just to have a little handwork and they will be ready for sale.

I also went shopping and purchased a basket hanger that I can use to display my bags.  Last year I borrowed my mother's for the show in Virginia.  I will probably end up borrowing that again for this year's show in Pennsylvania but I am happy to have this one in the studio.

I also recently added this very tall bookcase to the studio.  This is what you see as you are heading up the stairs

As you can see, I have bolts on the bottom shelf and (you probably cannot see) there are stacks of yard and half yard cuts of fabric folded and stacked on the second shelf.  The middle shelf is fusible interfacing and the top shelves are filled with fat quarters and scraps organized by color.

Here is what is on the cutting table right now.

I found a cute pack of charm squares that will be a baby quilt.  I have a couple more packs of some bright colors that will also be baby quilts.  I recently purchased some clearance wool batting in a craft size that will be perfect for some small quilts.  I have been anxious to try wool batting so this is a great opportunity to give it a whirl and not break the bank!

  1. When your work area is pleasing makes you more productive...or at least that is the way I am. Your area looks wonderful. The bag rack makes for a pleasing presentation too!

    Have a interesting day.
