Iron organization. One shelf in the armoire is dedicated to 'fabric care'. For a person who loathes to iron, I've certainly got some serious machinery. That's the Oliso on the left and next to it is a Reliable. Love them both, occasionally (twice a year) use them on clothes that need to come out of the bottomless pit I call my ironing basket. (If I heeded my own advice about ridding myself of 'things' that haven't been used for 2 years, I wouldn't even have an ironing basket!).
Every once in a while I slip into eBay (also known as let's buy things we really don't need) mode. Somehow I tripped over these old 'Sewing Susan' needle kits. I bought a couple and displayed them in an inexpensive frame from Michaels--more studio 'art'.
I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for decorative boxes. Always have been. This stack holds various fabrics and the 'carry all' at the top was something I bought to cart Vintage Rouge around while it was under construction. You can pick these up at Michaels, JoAnn, Tuesday Morning, Marshalls, Old Time Pottery.....they're all over, and always on sale. Colorful, decorative, stackable storage, that you can use anywhere in your home. And bonus...they keep your fabric away from the dust and the light.
That about wraps it up for organization tips and studio pix. I hope I've entertained you, and I especially hope I was able to share a couple of tips that will work as well for you as they do for me.
I took vacation days today and tomorrow to clean the rest of the house, finish putting away Christmas, and welcome some out of town guests who are spending the night on Thursday. After that it's nose to the grindstone and back to some serious sewing. I'll be back to share my progress once I've made some.
Enjoy your week, stay warm, and stay creative.
