When this hop was announced I started looking at my sewing space with a new eye. I have a problem with organization. I go from project to project without taking the time to put things away. I just push to the left until things fall off the table.
The problem with that plan of action is that my small tools get caught in the push and disappear for long periods of time.
This is my solution to the problem, a set of pockets for all of the smallish things including my remote control and while i was at it I added a built in Pin Cushion. I always have pins in this spot always falling on the floor.
So how do you keep the pockets and pin cushion off the floor, oh you attach them to a much longer piece of these very cool fabrics and end up with a machine cover to boot.
Next up, i have this great antique bottle holder
that I stick pens and stuff in to keep them handy
I thought it could use a box bottom
and maybe some new color coordinated cups
I also thought that a flatish dish would hold some more of my often used clutter
All of these projects were made off the top of my head based on patterns I had made in the past.
I was rather pleased with myself since so far they all came out just as I imagined.
Then there was the basket of odd size . Don't actually know where I had my calculator when I was planning this one.
It was supposed to be square.
Oh well it's still able to hold the needles and pins as advertised.
If I actually use all of the pieces, sewing will be a breeze, only time will tell.
Speaking of time, it is time to thank Madame Samm and Cheerleader Carla for all of the time and effort they have put into this wonderful hop. Thanks also to all of the participants in both parts of this event. Following are the others who are participating today.
