I think my recent lack of tutorials is probably to blame for the deep fall in views. :( I haven't added a new tutorial since September! YILES!!! I am SOOOOO sorry!!!!

BUT I will be making up for that this week. ;)

I finished my sewing room/library yesterday! YAY!!!!

I am sooooo excited to have my own space!!!! :) I thought I might have to fight The Hubby for it but once I explained to him how I would need that space to possibly start my own business and therefore maybe make some money, he gave it up peaceably.... LOL

And here are the cut pieces -

Our old stained and beat up kitchen table is my new cutting table! :) YAY!!!!!!

  2. Thanks, Yvonne!!! :) It's going to be soooo cute! I hope..... LOL ;)

  3. I am in love with your sewing space! That floor is to die for. I haven't posted about it in awhile, but I love to sew. It's funny that you say that about your views, because I get the most when I put up my pattern reviews. I guess that means we better get back to our machines! It's been fun learning about you through this challenge. :) BTW, you unpacked that room beautifully!

  4. Thank you sooooo much, Michele!!!
    Yep, I am already hitting the old sewing grind stone! LOL I should have a tutorial out tomorrow! Fingers crossed! ;)

  5. Wow, your sewing room looks so peaceful, I love it! I share my sewing space with my kids... Actually, I have a corner of the room, that's it.

  11. Stacy, thanks for visiting and giving a thumbs ups on my RemnantWorks blog I don't get a lot of traffic there, because I use it more like a website than a blog. Maybe I should follow your example and do some tutorials on the technique. :).
