My Happy Stitchin’ Space

Like a lot of peeps, I too started out sewing on the kitchen table. I did that for about a year until I got a dedicated room when my daughter and grandkids moved out.

I don’t have a pic of that very first room. It was in a different house and before I started blogging.

But here are some early pics of my current sewing room.

I’ve tried countless desks and tables over the years. Here’s a sewing table I helped make.

I used it for awhile, until I messed it up from moving it from room to room.

A couple years ago, I got a wild hair and decided I needed a bigger sewing room. And since all I did in my master bedroom was sleep, I swapped rooms.

The “master” sewing room, if you will.

About a year later, after I had had enough of going through my sewing room to get to the bathroom, I switched them back.

And I did some room improvements!

I painted the room a pretty pale yellow that looks much better in person (color is Chic Yellow by Glidden). I hung pegboards for my rulers, added a floating shelf from IKEA above the design wall for decorating and did some rearranging. I love my saddle chair!

I store my “stripped” stash and Mr. PeePotty supplies under the cutting table. Just to the right of the cutting table are my dies and mats for the die cutter.

Here’s my design wall, which I keep decorated w/orphan blocks between projects, because I can’t stand to see it bare.

There is some serious treasure behind these doors.

My books and modest fabric stash.

The left side is fabric that I’ve purchased and winnings from some awesome giveaways (mostly IG).

And the right side is fabric that has been gifted to me over the years.

I am so fabric rich!

Lastly, my travel machine, UFOs, and other miscellaneous things stored in tubs at bottom of the closet.

And so you have it! My happy stitchin’ space!

Honestly, I would sew in the corner of a closet if I had to, but I’m so very thankful for my room.

A Thread for Life

There’s no shadow You won’t light up

Mountain You won’t climb up

Coming after me

There’s no wall You won’t kick down

Lie You won’t tear down

Coming after me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine

And I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

I’m Getting It Together

I’ve finally finished all the components of my Merry Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt.

They had to be laid out in my desired placement before sewing any together.

I’m very thankful this layout guide was included in the pattern.

All 480 components wouldn’t fit on my design wall. And even laying out just half the blocks required me to use an additional piece of batting along one side.

The pattern designer recommended piecing the top together in sections. I visually divided into sections of 24; 4 across x 6 down, and started taking two at a time to the machine but quickly tired of this.

I decided to number each component w/tape, which allowed me to take entire sections to the machine.

And I had the top half sewn together in no time!

And now the bottom half is laid out on the design wall and waiting to be numbered.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Thread for Life

This is my prayer in the desert

When all that’s within me feels dry

This is my prayer and my hunger in me

My God is the God who provides

I will bring praise I will bring praise

No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice I will declare

God is my victory and He is here

All of my life In every season

You are still God

I have a reason to sing

I have a reason to worship
