The Ruthless Chatter
I am starting to get quite a lot of scraps from my quilt and sewing projects. What to do with them? Make a scrap quilt. Sometimes I find scrap quilts are “messy” looking. This Scrap Jar Star quilt from Gigi’s Thimble is stunning and doesn’t look very scrappy at all. Visit her blog for a FREE tutorial on creating this lovely piece of art (and scrap eater!!).
There are so many evenings that I sit on the couch to knit or crochet while unwinding in front of a television show with my husband. I would love to sit closer to him but it is more often than not that the couch and ottoman are covered with my project accessories. Sound familiar? Perhaps one of these days I will make this knit Armchair Caddy from the free pattern provided by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
I am fortunate to have a bedroom size sewing room in our basement. I do have a 10-foot long arm machine frame in the room so it does cut the size down a bit and so I do need to get creative with storing and organizing in the room. Andrea’s Notebook has come up with 5 Tips to Organize your Small Sewing Space. My favourite tip that I need to employ is to use vertical space. What is your favourite tip?
