Cute Little Shelf
Wes brought me home this cute little shelf last week. I had him mount it just above a door frame in my studio, and I quickly filled it up with a few miniature irons, some old spools, and a little jar of teeny-tiny 1/4" buttons. I'm lovin' it!
Two "new" vintage books for the sewing library
I also picked up these books at the local thrift shop. The first book, "The Sampler" is an old Elanor Burns book from 1982. The second book is a Simplicity Sewing Book, vintage 1972. What is going on with that woman's fingers?!!! It's a scary photo. I hope that isn't contagious!
I spotted this four pack of square rulers on clearance at Wal-Mart, and for $13.00, I just had to have them. Even though I'm short on funds this month, I couldn't pass this up. I've been looking for a 12-1/2" square ruler at a good price for a while. That is the size of the largest ruler in this pack. I've been doing a lot of my block designs in this size, so I know it's going to come in handy.
TNT, ready to sew?
Here's some of my new studio. Wes bought me this super-heavy metal desk for my sewing machine and custom cut out the slot to fit my machine. We were able to use the drawer with a few pieces of wood in it for a support for the machine. My old fold up table is behind the desk to help support quilts during quilting sessions. I'm going to have to do a few modifications to "pretty up" the desk, but it's super functional at a super price. $10.00 at the local thrift shop.
Trent loves to have his picture taken.
When I swivel my chair around from the new sewing desk, I have this great vintage wooden table that I just love, right next to the window. It has drawers on both sides of the center section, and a leaf easily folds out on each side. I can use this for cutting and designing.
The rest of my mess.
However, when I turn around to look at the other side of the room....well...I need to find places for a few things! Ugh! This is the result of yesterday's changes. Where am I going to put all this stuff? LOL! It's better to laugh than to cry, eh?
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
