But, I didn't want yall to think that I had forgotten you...so, here's a sneak peek into my sewing space!I had to take some pictures of my sewing space for my application for a scholarship to The Sewing Summit. I'm praying so hard that I get it. Yall can pray for that too. :) It's totally selfish of me to want to go, but it would be such an amazing thing for my birthday. But, it's all in the selection committee and God's hands! If not, maybe I can save up and buy a ticket before they sell out for next year.
Anyways, yall get the benefit of peeking into my sewing room. It's a small space, but hey, it beats having it in our bedroom, as was the case in Lancaster! Hubby was so sweet to let me take over his desk, and this little alcove in our home. It actually works great because I get lots of natural light if I open the curtains. Sometimes, that makes all the difference. I really like that it opens into our living space, so I can be right there with Reagan and Edmund. Overall, it's pretty organized. I have a sewing drawer in the desk (the rest are filled with actual office supplies, and other odds and ends) and it's pretty messy. I'm hoping to tackle that one here this month. I love having lots of my fabric out in pretty baskets to look at. It makes me happy! Plus, with my patterns that fit oh-so-neatly in their basket, I'm constantly inspired just by sitting there.
For those of you that sew, do you have a sewing space? Is it a tiny alcove like mine, all snug and cozy, or is yours a big room, or a shared space? How do you organize it and make it your own?
I should probably mention that I already re-arranged the pictures hanging along the back wall. The kindergarten tree picture is hanging on the door, the Japanese card is hanging on the left side of the door, and the print is hanging on the right side of the door. After taking these pictures, I realized that they needed to be re-arranged.
Also, one of my sewing books is missing from my stack. I also use Oliver+ S's "Little Things to Sew". She has such cute patterns! I want to get some of the clothing patterns for Reagan, but just can't make up my mind which ones (because I won't be able to buy just one) to get. Please tell me I am not the only one with this problem? Right now, my top three of her patterns are:
I've seen so many cute clothes from these patterns floating around Flickr and Pinterest. I'm dying to make some for Reagan when she's a little bit bigger. I know some of the patterns start around six months, but we're not quite to that clothing size yet. We're just starting to finish up the with 3 months sized clothing.
|When we realized that she could get to the table, we had to move her activity center out!|
Reagan's been busy rolling over these days! She's been able to roll from her belly to her back since April, and from her back to her belly since the end of May. This past week, she has been getting frustrated because she can't move places on her own. Reagan finally figured out that she can roll in multiple directions and times to get around a bit. The first time she did it, she was so surprised! I think she'd probably crawl if she had more upper body strength. She gets several bouts of tummy time a day, and she's improving, but still not as strong in the upper body as her lower half. So, here's a few pictures of her in action...
Stay cool in this hot weather, yall!! We'll be back Monday with another post!
