How are you doing? from QUilting By-You

How are your resolutions going? Are you finding it easier or harder to get into the swing of things this year?

I would like to say that I have dug right in to clean up my sewing room, but that hasn’t happened yet. The kids are getting ready to go back into school full time and my non shop days will no longer be spent supervising their education. That should give me some time to get back into my room, although I think first I would like to drink my morning coffee while it is still hot…..

Either way ...

A Whole New Studio from Quilting Affection


Before

For a long time, I wanted to give my sewing studio a facelift, so to speak. I have been wanting to paint and move furniture around so I can have a filming area for videotaping.






 So over the labor day weekend, with my husband's help, we began the process.  I started a couple days before packing and moving all my sewing supplies, fabric, and machines out.  We also started moving the furniture a couple days before, so I could shampoo the carpets.  


Saturday, we began the process by a trip to Home Depot and Lowes to get paint ...

Sunday Stash September 13, 2020 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in or out this week.

I made a little progress on everything, but nothing is close to finished. I keep thinking I should work on fewer projects at once to complete them faster.

I also spent time cleaning up in the sewing room. Way too much stuff, plain and simple. The room is at capacity.

I am in awe of those of you that have used vast amount of stash this year, some over 100 yards. I don’t know how you do it, but keep up the great work!

I corrected my numbers from last week. I ...

I Can't Believe I Organized the Whole Room! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

I (Teri) have spent the last two weeks touching every single item that is housed in this room. Determination to conquer the chaos and tame the mess took control of me, and I'm happy to say it paid off nicely. Here is a tour of my new space, which I actually enjoy working in now!

Welcome!

I'm embarrassed to share this photo from January, when I made it a goal to clean and organize. Yes, it really WAS that bad!!

I started in the closet, refolding every piece of fabric to size and organizing by color and type ...

Odds and Ends of Sewing from Quilts....etc.

Little by little I am trying to get my mojo for sewing back – I just took a break for awhile – yesterday I finished up a face mask that I had started awhile ago and I needed to do something different with one of the loops it wasn’t fitting right. I found these little […]

A Blessing And A Curse from Wedding Dress Blue

About two-and-one-half years ago my sewing room got a major facelift in the form of a cutting table.  YAY!  So many years of cutting on the floor were over.

But, the curse part is that it created space to shove stuff.  A LOT of stuff.

DSC01946

So, it all came out.

A really big pile went to live elsewhere.

DSC01949

The batting pieces were even made into Franken-batting and given a storage space.

And it is all back.

The top of the table is still a bit of a mess, but that can wait until tomorrow…

A little more to write about then yesterday.  I got my binding sewed down on RSC19Stars and now ready for the hand stitching part.  I had thought to do a multi color stripe for the binding but then I was lazy lol and just grabbed the newsprint that was on the final border instead.  I […]

Lessons Learned from Quilt Paint Create

I’ve been sorting through the sewing room and reorganizing. It’s a time consuming process. I went into it knowing I have too much stuff and it isn’t well organized, but other lessons emerged from the debris.
I don’t play enough.
I’ve posted about that several times over the years. Why is it so hard to make time for creative play? I get too caught up in my list and finishing the things on my list. I need to knock it off.
I have small collections of “things I want to try” stashed everywhere, and none ...

Sewing Studio Reveal from Expect Moore

Even before we moved to social isolation and stay-at-home orders, I had a crazy thought. What if we swapped my sewing studio with the master bedroom? And when my friend Cheryl asked if I’d like to join in her annual Spring Clean your Studio Blog Hop, the idea really started to take hold – ne […]

My Day on the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my day on the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop!

spring clean blog hop button.jpg

Four years ago (yes, that long!) I wrote a series of posts giving you a tour of my sewing studio. You’ll find links to those posts at the end of this post. I share my sewing room with my husband who is also self-employed. The room is over the garage and so it’s larger than a normal bedroom.

Here’s what my studio looked like back then…

When I got serious about quilting as a business four years ago, I came up ...

KonMari Your Stash! How to fold your entire stash … fat quarters, yards, garment fabric & more … from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Last year we released two videos on how I fold and organize my fabric stash. You loved it, but many of you wanted to just see the folding.

So I’ve recreated a supercut of both videos, that gets right down to how to fold your fabric so it can be stored vertically so you can see everything you have at a glance, and can fit the most fabric in possible in your space.

With this method I am easily able to fit 12.5 yards in basket the size of a shoe box. Plus everything looks neat, tidy and ...
