Where Bloggers Create 2013

Just a little late to the party...I had it in my head to upload the pictures on Friday for Saturday? Not sure where I got that, but I am a day late. Here we go...

I haven't really changed a whole lot since last year. Mostly just moving things here and there and hiding things I don't want to look at. I really wish my rooms looked like this all the time, but when I sew I am messy. I tend to start multiple projects at one time and have them piled up and spread all over the rooms. I cut or trace 6-8 of one pattern at a time, move on to another and cut or trace those before I start sewing and tea staining all of them. Those all go in a pile before I start stuffing and get ready to put them together. Not a great system, but that's how I do it. I actually started sewing for my shows earlier this year instead of waiting till the month before! Hid all the body parts and mess for the blogger party. Have to drag it all out tomorrow.

I love antique photos and old purses!

Hoarder Central! Wow that's a lot of stuff
Wall to wall and floor to ceiling
I need all of it, really!
Now that looks like extreme hoarding!

Farewell till next year!

Well, that concludes the tour of my sewing rooms for this year. As usual this was done with little or no help from my 2 digital cameras, my iphone and ipad, laptop and most of all blogger.  Just lost the entire post for 20 minutes, but retrieved it from drafts. Shouldn't be this stressful to put some pictures on a blog!! But like my brother, Rog always tells me it's probably OE....operator error!  Hope you enjoyed checking out my cluttered spaces and a big Thank you to Karen at My Dessert Cottage for doing this every year!!

'SEW' much goodness. LOVE LOVE all your sewing machines and those spool cases are to die for!! I was a stitcher before I fell hard into the paper crafts. Keep smiling and creating. Thanks for sharing your space.

Wow Debbie! You have used every inch of space in your sewing room- everywhere I look there's something new to see. The lace trim and fabric give it such a feminine feel without it being "girly" or "froo froo," something I appreciate. I'm looking forward to exploring your blog more (and thanks for the explanation about your business/blog name in the sidebar)! :)
