State of My Worktable
Merry Christmas Eve! This December I'm participating in a daily blog challenge; thought I'd stretch my writing fingers since I didn't have enough to do this final month of the year. (ha!) Check below for the link to find out who else is engaged in this crazy challenge. Time to take some pics...
Zero cleaning and straightening took place before I snapped these pictures, so this is a truly honest snapshot of the state of my workspaces. LOL You can tell I'm in the middle of a project... that's my mom's Yellow Brick Road blocks being squared up. (Read all about it in a previous blog from this month.)
Those four bins in the corner all contain a WIP that I've touched at least once this month. I'm desperately hoping to get at least two more WIPs completed before the end of the year, but time is certainly running out. And of course, the wrapping paper; a tell-tale sign that Christmas is here. I don't think I have anything else to wrap tonight so perhaps that'll be the first item cleaned off the cutting table.
Let's move on to my other spaces...
Ahh, the ironing board.. also know as the catch-all when I have to quickly drop something off in the quilt lab. Most of that pile is a recent addition from my mom. She's cleaning out unused portions of her crafty space and sends the items my way. On the way behind, you can see her LBY on the design wall, and a few blocks ready for pressing on the board as well. Big fan of the Oliso irons ...there's two in this picture; see if you can find both. Love the wool pressing mat too; a new love in my quilt lab arsenal.
And last, but not least, the sewing desk. That's my new machine, the Pfaff Creative Icon. And she's currently in the middle of putting borders on a scrappy diamond quilt with leftovers from my Bonnie Lane quilt. (see pictures of it in former blog post) The pride and joy of my quilt lab in the desk itself though! That desk was made by my great-grandfather; one of his first creations on his path to become a master carpenter.
Well clearly I need to get back to the quilt lab and straighten up this mess. I may have too many experiments percolating at one time, but tis the season, isn't it?!
Until next time!
