I’ve been working on upgrading some items in my sewing room. I was sewing on a high quality plastic folding table and it was starting to bough where my machine sat. An IKEA recently opened nearby so I knew that a sewing room upgrade was on the horizon.
I immediately fell in love with this trestle table.
I thought the slats in the legs would be perfect for holding my rulers and I was right! It was a bit larger than the folding table so I had to make more adjustments to the design of the room and shift things around a little bit. I also got this 9-drawer unit and the deeper drawers fit folded fat quarters beautifully! I’m only about halfway through and still need to get another storage piece for the opposite wall.
I had to clear some space to sew something as it had been a little bit. Should I finish up something in progress? No. Let’s start something new! That’ll be perfect for some mindless sewing. I had been wanting to make some kitchen themed items into a mini quilt for my office at work. The best place to start is this paper-pieced utensil crock by Kristy of Quiet Play.It looks awesome on my new sewing table. There’s a lot more room to spread out and I just love, love, love the Add-a-Quarter ruler that I got for Christmas!I cannot wait to get the room finished up and cleaned and organized. A few more pieces to buy and build and fill up then I should be ready for a full reveal.
