clean sewing room = new inspiration

Amazing how a quick tidy and sort out in the sewing room inspires some fresh creativity.

I’ve been churning out (a reference to the ice-cream maker in the back of this picture!) the folding sewing bags and venturing into making some nappy wallets and small multipurpose pouches.

I have been pleased how they have come together and added some tissue covers to the mix also.


I’ve been busy over the school holidays doing a few of those jobs that have been hanging around for years, putting up DD’s new curtains and covering the pelmet being one of them.


Reading time has also increased over the break and I’ve managed to finish 3 new books over the past few weeks, ahhh, what a luxury.  The house is clean and tidy, the wardrobes are purged, the pantry now has all the use by dates in the future rather than the past.. and so when I venture back to work next week I wonder how long it will last…

Happy Australia Day Stitchin :)
