Kristina at Sew Domestic http://kristinawilberg.typepad.com/sewdomestic/ is hosting a Studio Blog Tour all this week. Stop by to check out where us crafty/quiltly folk spend our time creating.
My creative space is totally a work in progess. But here’s what I have so far!
The cutting table looking not too messy (but wait.)
The do dads UNDER the cutting table= very messy! That cardboard box is filled to the brim with quilt tops waiting to be quilted.
Here is were I sew and iron.
Now for a very scary sight! Beware the closet!!!
A.. What do you use your space for?
I use my sanctuary for quilting, needle punching, paper crafting, gift wrapping, card making, painting, and for escaping the chaos whenever necessary. It’s my “Calgon Take Me Away” spot. I always have a stack of books on c.d. to listen to while I am creating.
B. What is your favorite thing about your space?
It’s the one spot in my house that lets my “inner kid” out and I can decorate it in a way that doesn’t have anything to do with being a grown up! Not to mention NO ONE is allowed in there so it is an ALL MINE club house! =)
C. What struggles do you have with your space?
It is way to small. I tried to get the hubbs to let me have the master bedroom for my sewing room, but it was a NO GO. hehehehe
There isn’t any overhead lighting, so at night I have to use 3 lights and an ott light to make it workable.
When I hit the lottery I will design and build an ENORMOUS sewing room!
D. When do you use your space?
I use my space every single day. I sew and craft all hours of the day.
E. Share an organizational technique that works for you.
Organization? What’s that? LOL One good way utilize the unused space under a cutting table or side table is to skirt the table with fabric then store containers, plastic drawers, and boxes underneath!
