Love in that I love using these pieces from the past and celebration in that I am actually getting some things made from them after years of collecting.
I have plans to make more in different sizes and some for specific uses like crochet hook holders. I've been looking at ideas over at SewCanShe's Tutorial Archives Crafty Little Things To Sew. Visit her home page HERE. If you are thinking about starting your Christmas Gift Sewing, like me, you will be soooo inspired with a visit to this website. Like SewCanShe on Facebook and get all of her great projects, tutorials and giveaways.
I did do a bit of 'Organizing/Straightening Labor in my Sewing/Quilting Studio on this Labor Day!
After dragging out the Vintage Scraps, Thirty's Reproduction Stash, Buttons, Lace and all, I had to stop production and make room for the next wave of Pouches and Zipper Bags. I always enjoy seeing how other Quilter/Sewists organize their Studios, so I thought you might like to see mine.
I leave a trail of thread and snippits of fabric from the sewing room through the kitchen and into my office where the computer is....sometimes I have to take a break for a snack and more inspiration. If you do what I do....then you know what I'm talking about.
No matter how big a mess I make....I have to Start in a Clean and Organized space. So after filling a basket with Zipper Bags and Quilty HotPads it was time for Labor Day Labor.
That's how I spent my Labor Day!
Happy Labor Day, Ya'll
