You'll notice right away that my sewing area is lacking two mandatory things, namely: natural light and decoration of any kind. I know, I'm a sew-y blog-y fraud.
So, here we go, my wannabe, poser sewing area. (has anyone said "wannabe" since 2002?)
Yes, the other half of the room that contains my sewing area is the playroom. This is actually pretty convenient, until the baby starts eating dropped pins. I wanted to switch sides, so I could have the natural light from the window, but my corner is recessed behind a short wall, so guests can't readily see my slovenliness upon entering the house. (instead they have to take 10 steps into the house first)
It's not ideal, but it is actually pretty spacious, especially compared to the 3 square feet I had in our old place. And the 2 square feet I'll have when we move back to our house in the states...
So what am I up to in this sewing area of mine? Well, like the rest of sewingblogland, I am busy cutting and prepping for KCWC!
I have some very ambitious goals, made even more ambitious by the fact that my husband is still out of town. But luckily the majority of my goals are dedicated to my new pattern, which after sewing approximately 532,602 times, I can now make in a half hour flat.
I'm also planning on finally making a Junebug dress (she had me at the name!) out of this fabric:
and maybe a bubble dress out of this fabric:
Oh, and I totally forgot about the jammies and the romper I wanted to make for the bubbie. As I said, ambitious.
What are you making? May I suggest a Greenpoint Cardigan? (I swear this blog isn't going to become a walking advertisement. I'm done now.)
*Yes, this is what it looks like after hours of cleaning. The only thing I consistently make in my sewing room is a mess.
ps: I apologize if you saw a preview of this post a few days ago in your reader. Blogger apparently thought that when I hit "enter" to begin a new paragraph, I really meant "publish".
