New Sewing Space

Technically it's not "new" it's still in the same physical space, but I changed everything around and it feels oh so new! I reorganized last November and it worked for the most part. However, the cutting space still wasn't big enough and it was too high. There was no space to iron, and there was wasted space to the right of my desk. I love moving furniture around and I knew it was time for a change. So all day on Wednesday, I cleaned (should have taken a real before, it was really messy in there!), shuffled things around, while Chris built me a table that is the right shape and height. Here's the new more functional space! 

I love that I now have the light flowing in from the window and I can look out into our front yard while I'm sewing. I still don't have a "space" for ironing as I rearranged, but if I set it up like this: 

 and it's perfect! a little cramped perhaps, but just right for my little space. Here's some close-ups of my favorite little nooks. 

No matter what you're space, it's so much easier to sew when it's not cluttered!

Pinterest //

 

Pinterest has been spreading like wildfire! Many of you have an account and are addicted to Pinterest! I've talked to lots of gals who love scrolling through on their phone and computer looking and pinning all of the pretty pictures. It's such a great way to share amazing finds! 
My favorite use of Pinterest is to use it as a bookmarking tool. I'm easily able to save articles, blog posts, good tutorials etc to access for later. I've been pinning for about 6 months and my boards were rather messy and not thought-through. It's been bugging me for awhile so I've spent most of this morning, re-organizing and editing the boards, and applying my brand to Pinterest. Since I love and blog about crafts, I've made individual boards for each craft. Within the boards are tutorials, inspirational photos, and great ideas for each type:

Another aspect that I love about it, is to catalog ideas. For example, I'm in the process of designing a new quilt design for our bed. I've made a board entitled: Bed Quilt Design and I've been pinning images and fabrics that I might use to guide my design process. Finally, I love holidays, so I've started boards for the current (and some past) holidays to pin crafts and projects that I like that have to do with that holiday. 
I'm really excited to share this with you! Follow me pinning on Pinterest, I hope that you'll continue to be inspired and begin more crafting! ;) Are you on Pinterest? Have you been bitten by the bug yet and are addicted? If so, how have you found it useful?
