SEWING ROOM INSPERATION

 The sewing rom will be getting a new look for the new a year, out with the yellows & in with rich greys, blacks & maybe teals, not sure which color to pull in  just yet,  sister gave me  sets of black/white Tule curtains , that’s what sparked  the new look with the grey walls, I have thought about red as well,there’s  a saying “less is more” but what can I let go of hummm nothing! lol! there are many projects going on in other rooms of the house so the sewing room will take a while but in the meantime I’ll be working on things like recovering  the swivel chair, making a table ironing board, you know, prep work! & back to sewing

out of all the sewing spaces I have pinned don Pinterest this one draws me the most

did I mention I love red?  would that be too much with blacks/whites?

Another ida for a crafting room

do you have a favorite color  for the sewing room? is there a dream studio that you just awe over, any ideas how to make my space bigger? at least the illusion of bigger? lol!

now it’s time to get back to sewing, there’s  a Cardigan waiting to be finished, there lots of new fabrics that’s been added to the stash, I came across a blogger  that said she sews her muslin with a  basting stitch then takes it all out & sews it once it’s tweaked & just right as apposed to making  a muslin that can't  be taken apart resulting in making one after another, this method sounds like a good idea to me
