The Sewing Hut

I have been trying to get my sewing area together for a while now. Every time I try, there’s always something that gets in the way.

Fabric fright

The Georgia Aquarium came at one point.


There was a snowstorm. We had LOTS of fun!

The military lowcrawl

We put up our front porch, too.


Beautiful weather came along and I wanted to enjoy that – NOT CLEAN!


But, I finally tackled the sewing hut. You see why it’s called the hut.


Yeap, the hut. with everything pulled out except a few items that had nothing to do with sewing and the fabric stand you saw in the first picture.

The boys got new bed sets and did not need their old dressers, so I acquired this one. It’s my new pattern desk/file. Whatever you want to call it. 

Aquired pattern dresser

Can you see the sewing table below? Along with my roll-away caddy that holds miscellaneous items.


I started pulling everything out so I could see where I was going with thing.

Gettin it!Almost there

Most outsideMore fabric in bucketsMore fabric in boxesTrying to break down and see how much fabric do I really own!? So far, I counted 10 Avon boxes full, 9 boxes from online orders, 9 buckets of various sizes (The turquoise is one of two of the bigger buckets.)

By now, it was starting to get dark and time to finish dinner. So I had to stuff things back inside that were not sorted. I have some of the fabric bins and boxes inside. The dresser now holds my ‘to-do’ or ‘you’re next’ projects. The shelf above it holds fleece, flannel, and sewing books.  

Gettin there

Everything else stuffed back in for tomorrow.

Almost there; got dark

Until tomorrow, Schey.

Hi, Schey! This is Almatinka/Masha/Mas'ka (you'd have to know Russian to know how to pronounce that last one ;-)) from BurdaStyle! ;-) I finally had a chance to subscribe for your blog (don't know if you'll get a notification of that - I am still new to blogs, so... oh, and mine for now is just in Russian - I'll create another one for just sewing in English later).
I envy your hut!!! In a good way, of course, but all I have fabric wise is a file cabinet, a bin (about the size of that turquoise one ;-)) and a few bags a boxes that we just got and which haven't yet found a "home"... But now with my husband's quitting his job, I know I will have more time to sew and the "stash" will disappear... :-)
