In the Sewing Room

I decided to move my sewing room to a more sunny location in the house. So this weekend was all about moving furniture from one room to the other, re-organizing and getting settled. It was a lot of hard work switching rooms, thankfully my husband helped me a lot. He did most of the heavy lifting. Even though we were exhausted it was all worth it. I love my new room; I get a lot more natural light and the new layout makes it feel more spacious.  

As part of my reorganization I needed some containers to hold small tools and scissors so I covered a couple of tin cans with fabric. And on the small one I practiced English paper piecing. It was my first time using this technique and I love it. I can't wait to do some more.

My small fabric stash is now neatly organized on my new shelves. I still have to do some organizing, but it is all coming together nicely. Now it is time to get sewing.
I hope you had a great weekend!



  1. Great idea on upcycling - lovely hexies and great color choices on those containers. Might want to copy you on upcycling those tin cans ;)
    And you've got some yummy stacks of fabrics, Martha!

  2. Those containers are great! How did you get the top of the cans so smooth?

  3. Oh wow, those covers you made for your round canisters are really cute! I love em. :)


Thank you for your comments I really appreciate them. I love hearing from you!
