And everything in its place? Well, it seems unlikely that I will ever be that organized, but I am making progress. Today's proof is a new cabinet for my sewing machine. Up until now, when I wanted to sew, I was using a tv tray as a table, and while I was able to make it work for some things, it was not ideal. There is so much I like about this new piece. It allows me to have a proper place to sew, it offers storage for various sewing tools and accessories, and it can close up and keep everything protected and out of sight.
It might take me a little time to organize everything in it, but I am already using it for sewing. I finished Eva's birthday blanket, and I love it.
I first saw this blanket pattern over at Grumperina's, and I bookmarked it immediately. I read the tutorial and thought it might be something I could make, so I bought some fabric. I washed, ironed, and assembled, and then it was time to pack and move, so it sat. One day I decided I had better get going on it, so I even managed to do most of the sewing on my old tv tray setup, including making the binding. I finished the blanket the other day after I assembled my table, and I love it. I think it is cute, and can see more of these in my future.
