My car's brakes failed.
I spent $1000 at the shop getting that and a number of other things fixed.
I bought $60 worth of beer.
Those things are not related.
But today is also the final reveal!
Without further ado, my sewing room:
Traded out the shelving units and I like how this doesn't overpower the room.
New formation of the triangles on the design wall and the template bulletin board on the closet wall. The closet that will NEVER be open, because it is like a vortex of death in there. Or something less dramatic. Also, pretend you can actually see the stuff in this photo. Thanks.
Yay! The mask is from a friend who went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans a few years back. And as you can see, I dressed the mannequin with a bodice so she's not scandalous, and she's got some embroidery hoop neckwear.
This has changed a bit from my previous picture. I installed a rod from IKEA and hung a cup and basket so that I can have the entire cutting mat free to work. I also put up some more happy wall art :) [Note to self: take better pictures.]
And because I forgot to turn the snowflake lights on previously...they're battery powered, which is convenient.
And the item's for today's addition to the giveaway:
I want to inspire people to venture into forms of sewing/craft that they may not have tried because they were scared or didn't want to spend money on something new. Therefore, we have a 6" embroidery hoop, linen Aida, embroidery floss [not necessarily the colors pictured], and my "fabric? must.stash" pattern [which will be emailed to you]. So you can get cross-stitching!
And for those of you who are scared of trying to sew clothing, I am also including a yard of this fabulously summer-friendly cotton lawn [I'm pretty sure it's lawn]. It's almost sheer, and would make a fabulous Colette Sorbetto! There will also be a vibrantly lime 14" zipper so if you've never made a zippered pouch then you can hop to it!
