Today I have 32 bags to sew for a wholesale order due Tuesday (this is the actual order, not an exaggerated number), gifts to finish making, plus a farmer's market date quickly approaching that still needs some inventory. So what do I do with a free hour this afternoon? Decorate my studio! One corner, at least. And then blog about it, of course.
This table has bothered me because it's the first thing you see when you walk into my studio. Everything is very functional, but it looks ugly. As fate would have it, I had a length of material that I bought quite a while ago with no plans. I love this fabric! I even have a zippy pouch for sale using this material, but I didn't know what to do with the rest of the yard.
Inspiration struck while procrastinating and I came up with this:
Curtain on a tension rod to hide the scrap fabric mountain (I have products in mind that will recycle these scraps).
Isn't it darling? The antique machines! They look just like my grandmother's.
The pin cushion cracks me up. And the old school iron? Forget it. Such a great daily reminder of how easy technology has made certain aspects of my craft.
How do you procrastinate when facing a deadline? Or am I the only one?
