BurdaStyle Featured Member (Eeeep!)

I’m so excited I can hardly find the words… I’m this week’s BurdaStyle Featured Member! Take a look!

And, the funny thing is that right when I admitted to the world that I was was just fine that I don’t have a true sewing space, just my sewing machine on a filing cabinet in the corner of our “dining room”, my husband and I find the perfect sewing table (though others might call it a vanity) on the side of the street one block from our house on our run this morning. It fits just perfectly in the corner of the “living room”. (Really, all the rooms are just one and the same, so I haven’t moved that far from the built-in ironing board.)

Take a look at my new sewing corner!  Wiley is.

After work tonight I hung my thread rack and a push-pin board on the blank wall you see behind the table.  I now have my most recent project sitting right next to my machine waiting for the next chance I get to sew.  And, the drawers are now all full of patterns, interfacing, scissors, ribbon, and all the other sewing-related items I’ve collected to date.  I didn’t think I needed a sewing space, but I have to say it’s feels really nice to have one.

It’s been a good day.  I hope the same is true for all of you.  Happy sewing!

  1. Congratulations on the BS feature – very cool.

    And it is nice to have your own sewing space isn’t it? I used to sew on the dining table and kept the machines and stuff all in cupboards. So so so nice not to have to move everything about just to get sewing.


  2. Congrats on being the featured member on Burda Style…that’s exciting.

    Love that little vanity you found…isn’t it amazing what people throw away? I too have a portion of my small living/dining room dedicated to my sewing room — the upside there is it forces me to keep things organized, and tidy.

  3. Just catching up on some reading and found you on the BurdaStyle feature. Your work is fantastic! Would you mind telling us where you found that wonderful looking dress form?

    1. Thank you! It’s even cuter now that I’ve hung things on the wall over the area!! It’s been fun having a nice corner for my projects!
