I haven't been creating much these past days. I HAVE been cleaning and organizing my new sewing area next to my studio. It is almost done now and soon I will be creating fun things.
It isn't beautiful....not a finished area.....but I would call it functional! I think this is the first time I have ever had my sewing things all in one place. It should make it a lot easier for me to get around to sewing. It isn't too inspiring to sew when you have to drag everything out and set it up before you can even start. I even bought a BRAND new cover for my ironing board and it is all ready to go also.
I did make a PARIS inspired pillow for my Moms' 85th birthday. It was blue toile, blue ticking and some natural linen. I sewed a round lace doily on it, then a red PARIS label and finished it with some red stitching to set it off. Then in each of the four corners, I sewed some big red buttons. I was in such a hurry to get it done and in the mail so that she would get it in time for her B-day, I neglected to get any pictures of it.
I think I will make another one......it was awfully cute!! SHE LOVED IT!!!!!
Have a great day one and all....stay cool (It is supposed to be in the 90's today and humidity is a bear)
hugs, Sue K
