After I had all the books and binders put away in the new/old shelves in the sewing room, I needed a fitting book. My best books are in a nearly inaccessible stack in another room, so I had the not-too-brilliant thought to put the books I use the most in the shelves and replace the stack with books I seldom use. This was quickly done and made me very happy. My reorganized sewing room is not a decorator’s delight, but as I told my daughter, it is a working room, not a showplace. I like knowing where my stuff is and knowing that most of the extra stuff I will never use is now gone. Also, I am one of those creative people who thrive in semi-chaos. Or so I tell myself.My husband had the idea to get clear storage zip-closed containers for the yarn from the Container Store, and it really looks much better than the garbage bags I was using before. It’s now possible for me to get into the closet and to access the shelf with my vintage knitting pamphlets. Now that this big job is pretty much done, it’s time to actually make something.
My goal for today is to sew the pocket on and press under the front plackets, heat permitting. Today is supposed to be a little cooler so we will see how it goes. It’s a little annoying that fans and sewing don’t mix. They may keep you cool, but they blow your patterns and small fabric pieces all over the room.
