- I have boxes and boxes of fabric I collected the last few years as well as lots of other sewing and crafting supplies.
- I have no access to purchase other supplies except when we leave the country or get others to bring us stuff.
- And I have time.
Here is my sewing room, which I am only using for storage right now (no A/C in that little out-building yet).
|Jewelry making supplies and yarn on top; fabrics I might have a plan for or just want to look at, sewing notions like trims and buttons; some patterns and other notions and threads on the table top (which is just the right size for my cutting mat); drawers of fabric underneath.|
|Nani Iro/Echino/Special, solids, batiks, more solids|
|Greens, blues, pinks, other colorful prints|
And there are a few things I can´t seem to find, like my extra rotary blades and sharpener. I´m guessing they are in one of those bags or boxes..... I´ll get around to organizing it all eventually. But right now, I ´m having too much fun sewing.
Here´s my make-shift setup:
Those boxes under the table contain patterns. The other bins are laundry (which don´t have a home yet). I am using a spare bedside table as a chair. Nice, huh? I´m just happy to be able to sew! When the power goes out, and we turn on the generator, I drag a very long extension cord from the living room (where the plugs work) into here.
So, that´s where I am. I have already started making things. I will catch you up with what I´ve made since our stuff got here in upcoming posts. In the machine right now are my son´s monkey pjs. He is hoping to wear them tonight, so I better get back to that...
