Oh dear what a bad blogger I have been! Well at least I now have something to show you. My sewing space is finally finished. I have had a sewing table made for my sewing machine and embellisher.
The piece de resistance, however, is my mobile worktable. I can store it away in my sewing room when we have visitors and the downstairs space is in use. Or I can wheel it out and rotary cut or do whatever. It is the same height as my kitchen bench and on big castors – it is easy to move about. I have 24 spaces for baskets of ‘stuff’ – fabric, tools, you know – stuff.
I am in heaven! Now that I have my space sorted, I can concentrate on making things. As the weather is warming up, I dedcided to get out the dye stuff again. I tried breakdown printing earlier in the year, and was somewhat underwhelmed. I decided to give it another go. I think I had the thickened dye not thick enough. I am much happier with this blue piece. It needs more to turn it into something, but is a good start – I do like the organic look.
Here it is on the design wall (at last, I have a design wall again – I didn’t realise how much I missed having one until I had it back again!). There are some other pieces of fabric that I have dyed/painted over the past few days, being auditioned with some commercially produced stuff.
Well that is a start to my resuming blogging. I have lots of other stuff to show, and a story to tell about restocking my dye supplies. But right now, I am hungry, so am going to take a lunch break.
