craft room progress

i love how it is turning out! 
I love the color of this shelf! It was a walnut color wood shelf that I had in my kitchen and recently took it down so I decided to repaint it and hang it in my sewing room. I decided to hang it above my cutting board so I could put my pin cushions and rulers and scissors on it.
So this is what my sewing room looked like last week...
There is no shelf and I did some rearranging of my quilts

And this is what I did this weekend! I added the shelf
and also added the wire hanging system that I got from ikea. 
I have always wanted to display my creations but without putting a bunch of holes in the walls. It also had to be easy to hang up. Well these are hanging up by clips.

This system was around $14 for the clips and the wire set up at Ikea

Now, if you have ever bought things from IKEA then you will know there directions are quite unique...they don't have words, only pictures.

They also don't come with screws so I always have a jar of screws handy for all my projects.

So once I got the wire system hung I was able to hang up all my mini quilts

and here is where I keep all my McCall & Simplicity patterns.

I really love how in the after picture all my projects really stand out. in the before picture they were kinda lost in all the clutter.  Now I just need to get sewing!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
