From my last post and the (very helpful!) comments that followed, I conclude the following:
- In a crafty family, no one ever eats at the dining room table. If Mr. Sweetness and I are ever lucky enough to have a dining room in addition to an eat-in kitchen, we will stop the charade and arrange it for its proper purpose (office, craft space, etc.) from the get go.
- Above-desk (or couch, or bed) shelving is an awesome idea. I will have to make sure my next landlord allows wall-mounted shelves (the current one doesn’t).
- I must have this sewing/craft cart from Sauder.
I love that the whole thing is on casters, so it can be stored in the closet, or the kitchen, and then rolled to the living room for crafting. I love that there’s a dedicated storage space for the sewing machine, but that the machine’s position is not fixed on the tabletop – I can move it forward and back, right and left, depending on my project.
- Talking about my lack of sewing productivity propels me to sew! Even with the disadvantage of having to miss my sewing class yesterday! (stupid MBTA Red Line)
I finished the three zippered pouches which have been sitting on my desk for a week! (item #9 in last entry’s photograph)
I pieced together the 5 rows which make up the String Quilt Set on Point!
And today I plan to finish putting together the quilt top! Though I’m realizing that this will be very tricky, having to line up all the fabric intersections at once… Hmmm… Any advice?
