Cleaning up and moving on

I decided that I really needed to clean up the sewing room and get rid of a lot of stuff that was just laying around; I also vacuumed up all the debris on the floor.  I then sorted through a huge bag of patterns that really needed to be put away.

I have a fabric storage room-I like the sound of that- but let me clarify that the room stores other stuff as well such as Christmas ornaments and the like.  Plus I have my grandmother's sewing machine and sewing table in this room also.  The bulk of it is plastic containers of fabric.  I am periodically traveling from sewing room which is at one end of the house to the storage room which is at the other end of the house.

I had pulled a lot of fabric for potential sewing projects for the fall and winter.  There were just too many in the room and I decided to cull through the stack of fabric and put it back in storage.

So now that patterns are put up, excess fabric out of the way and floor vacuumed I proceeded to put out top/blouse patterns and fabric to sew up over the next few days.

I will give the Alma Blouse a try later on.  Let me also state that the pattern is a good one and the issue with the pattern is operator error not the pattern.

I will share with you later what I plan to work on next.  Off to the sewing room now.


  1. I know you feel like a fresh wind just blew through you sewing room. Of course I should follow your lead - maybe over the Thanksgiving Holiday. That Alma blouse is really cute - I think she deserves another try as well!
    Happy Thanksgiving up in Virginia from one Linda to another!

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well Linda Faye! Hopefully you will have some sewing time during the holiday.
