My Happy Place

I spent some time today finishing up the organization of my actual sewing area- the place where my machine is. I have been SO happy with this new arrangement... it's so open and bright! I have not been able to quilt fast enough to keep up with everything I want to do :)

Here's where the action takes place! My little sewing "L" has everything I need right at hand to make sewing a breeze!

My trusty Pfaff- I sincerely love this machine and would not give it up for anything- not even a fancy new Pfaff! I have lots of lighting, and a $1 tray I found on clearance just fits under my extension table and holds my needles, bobbins and feet.

I have a ton of little notions all right at my fingertips! I also set up a little cutting mat/ironing surface and a mini iron right by my machine, so I'm not popping up and down every 10 seconds to go to the big ironing table.

My notions pantry! My mother-in-law used to have a huge garden, and she canned a lot. She doesn't do any of that anymore, so she gave all her canning jars to me! These are ones that have flaws or surface cracks and can't really be used for canning anymore. But they can hold my purse feet, magnetic snaps, D-rings, and snaps! The other containers hold the little snaps I use for my flannel "mama cloth" pads, pins and polyester boning.

My "Tub-O'-Heather"... these are my Heather Bailey strips for the wonky log cabin quilt along.

I had intended to to a giveaway for my 200th post, but, um, I kinda wasn't watching the post numbers... at all. This is post #220! So be on the lookout for post #225... more details to come!
