Friday's are 'theme' days during Me-Made-May and today's theme is 'sewing space' with an emphasis on the machines we use. I sew on a Bernina 1230 and a Bernette for Bernina Funlock 006D Serger. Both machines were purchased in the mid-1990's with the sewing machine 'previously loved' (i.e. used) and the serger brand-new. May I also mention that I absolutely would not be able to sew without my magnifying Ott Lite on wheels. You can see the magnifying glass above the serger in the photo below. I use it for all my machine and handwork projects.... and that's while wearing my reading glasses too.
I'd like to take this opportunity to show you around my sewing room, but before we move away from this photo, below.... one cannot miss the beautiful horse print above my desk. I love horses! I've always loved horses for as far back as I can remember and have owned horses, not only in my youth when I was brave enough to ride hunter/jumpers, but also as an adult with a less adventuresome spirit. I fell in love with this print because she reminded me of a sweet, beautiful mare I used to have. No horses now, but I will always adore them.
Today I am wearing another Kirsten Kimono Tee and a NEWLOOK 6192 soft gray skirt.
at this post. The color is Sherwin Williams' Abalone, and I love it! He's painting the ceiling in the photo below. Yep, everything was painted! It was so stressful at the time, having to clear everything out..... but now that I'm back in and tweaking the organization, I really love my room!
here if you are interested. With a business background, desks always seem sort of 'important' to me..... and I love this one. Have thoroughly enjoyed the chairs I recovered using no pattern. Gosh, has it really been two years?!!!
little wooden index card catalog that was a gift to me one Christmas. Bottom left is a shadow box full of handmade gifts my sweet daughter, Melissa, made for me. They are hand sewn, crochet and embroidered. I need to find a place to hang it up, but meanwhile it's near my desk too.
NEWLOOK 6192 skirt, with a Kirsten Kimono Tee along with the new Jersey Bolero-style Jacket/Cardi, Pattern N, from Happy Homemade Sew Chic by Yoshiko Tsukiori. May I also add that my husband is being such a good sport about Me-Made-May and even took this photo below, with my iphone (that he is completely unfamiliar with), in front of a random building with a few people milling about. He is very private and that is way beyond his comfort zone. He's a good guy.
Happy Sewing Everyone!
