I haven't been blogging much lately because honestly, I've barely set foot in my sewing room. Over the holidays I was too sick to sew and it seems that lately there's always something else on the go that prevents me from sewing.
The past couple of weekends I've sent Joe out geocaching with friends and I've actually had a little time to sew and listen to some music (yes Lera, MUSIC! on my iPod!).
Today when I walked into the room I honestly felt a rush of happiness. I grabbed my camera and started snapping even though the light was terrible.
Here are a few of my buttons. Buttons make me happy. I have buttons in jars, buttons in little drawers. Buttons everywhere. Oh, how I love buttons.
My sewing machine. I love it. Joe bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago and I think it's honestly the best Christmas present I've ever had.
This is a little corner of my sewing table. It's covered in junk, but there's just enough space to cut out my beloved Simplicity 3835 pattern on it. That's all the room I need for now.
Here's my thread organizer. I need more thread. Really I do. I'm running low on basic colours and I think I need to get more soon.
And here's a crappy photo of my 4 (yes 4) most recent Simplicity 3835 tops. I've been sewing them to take with me to Vegas in March. I am also feeling good about using up my stash!
I cut out two more tops today but I've run out of steam. It's time to plunk myself in front of the computer/TV for the night and perhaps start a fire (in the fireplace). Joe will be home shortly and there's a roast in the oven. Today was a fun day!!
