the juries still out on this blog but in the meantime I’ve been playing around with pictures of the sewing room, putting them in a collages
Why is it hard to let go? why & what do we hold on for? I’ve given this blog a lot of thought & I do love it but now that there’s only one to two shows a year to wow you with seems like that’s not enough to hold your interest as I haven’t been able to work year round on stuff like I’d like too & if I did would it really matter? with show time being ten months away what is there to say here at nannas raggedys n prims? as you’ll see over at Nannas place I’m into everything just not doll making just yet , if I choose to close this blog I’d hope you’d join me over at nannas place where you can still keep up with what’s happening as we are in the process of moving into a 3000 sq. ft home in just a few weeks & you should see the size of my new sewing room! just letting you know where I stand with this blog, there’s a part of me that says let it go I can always put my raggedys etc on the other blog & there’s another part of me that can’t let go
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
she gives you step by step tutorials on everything she has done in her sewing room
I also love the freshness of whites
aww to have this much room!
is this what they mean by less is more lol!
did I mention I love red? would that be too much with blacks/whites?
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!
MY SEWING ROOM ‘when it’s clean” lol!
my daughters kitten thinks that all bags belong to her, she loves to curl up in them , I had one filled with things that just needing a little tweaking here & there like this Annie that she pulled out of my bag , we laughed so hard at how she looked like she’d just fell out lol
A FEW HAPPY CUSTOMERS
as you can see Annie survived Miss Lucy lol & made the show, she was my first sale!
my daughters table was so cute , hand painted Olaf mugs, little boy ties, bath bombs, clip boards, jewelry etc.
we both did so well we thought it only fitting to go by Bath & Body after the show, with a sale like that how could we not , we were in lotion heaven! & yes we brought a lot of that heaven home with us 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
little bear says he's ready to go
but he is worried that brother wont make it, he just can't seem to get himself together
