World Wide Quilting Day
Now that's something to jump for joy over.
It's a day where we can "shelf" the craziness of the world and just
join together and stitch our hearts away.
I'd like to invite you down into my stitching cave.
It's a place where all the silliness happens.
My room is long and narrow.
My sewing machine is on one end and my longarm on the other.
It's all about storage for me.
The table my machine is on, is 12' long. Hubby built it for me years ago,
to accommodate one of those first home long arm frames
The kind that the tracks taped down to the table top.
Man, have things improved light years, in home longarms since then.
My table has been converted to provide lots of storage and a big cutting area. But my all time favorite is the light box that's recessed into one end.
I re-purposed a set of cabinets from an old water bed frame,
for extra storage under my long arm. They were a perfect fit, but there is a down side. It's another flat surface, that tends to collect piles of "stuff".
I'm a self proclaimed IKEA addict!
I just love all their things for storage, and the ability to roll them around where you want them.
The dressers I bought are great for fabric storage, but even better as extra work areas. My ironing station is on one set of them. I put a strip of "Inspired LED
" lighting under the shelf above it. It provides great lighting and the strip sticks on with adhesive.
In addition, I bought a CD rack years ago from Best Buy, that has been invaluable for my fat quarter storage.
Well now...this post got pretty long winded.
Hang in there with me, there are some great give away's at the end.
I wrote a guest blog post recently, that "seamed sew" appropriate to re-share for WWQD!
(it also explains the crazy that happens in my quiltin' cave)
Noun (Knitting and Sewing) a link made my drawing a thread through material, by means of a needle
Verb (Knitting and Sewing) (tr) to sew, fasten, etc, with stitches
Example: When I am forced to use needle and thread, yes it's true.
When a hot glue gun or stapler, well it just won't due!
Oh, don't think I haven't tried it "all" once or twice.
See, I'm addicted to "stitch"
no matter the price.
I've cooked aluminum can's on the BBQ grill.
Then stitched them to a wall hanging, just for the thrill.
I've stitched on clothesline, to many a things...
...some even look like, they are sitting on springs.
(Example: my sad leaning basket, of Pisa)
I've glued tissue paper into muslin, painted and stitched.
Heck, I've even stitched photos...now ain't that just rich!
Stitched a couch, in my house,
and I've stitched up some of those...
...just to warm up, those cold winter toes.
I've gone bonkers with strange stuff...
Have you ever saved thread?
It makes a nice, wool feel fabric.
Definitely not for your bed.
Cloth made from "Dog Ears".
No, not the ones from your dog...
...those pieces from squaring, half square triangles, oh my...
And what about "shard" cloth?
All those "shards" you must save.
When trimming your blocks, you know it's all the rave.
It's a sickness I tell you!
And I can't "seam" to stop.
But coffee bags?
Oh heck, just why not!
This 2'x4' giant, the most crazy of all.
It hangs in my kitchen, right up on the wall!
I tell you, there is "almost" no limit, what you can stitch!
But I love me, my quilting...
fusible applique is my fix!
