As you saw just before Christmas, my LittleStitch workspace had taken over our dining room.
This set-up was not working for me: fabric on the floor, tabletop covered with accessories, patterns, fabric, etc. It was a disaster of epic proportions. And it did not get cleaned up before we headed to North GA for our family Christmas vacation. When we got home on Friday, I was so overwhelmed. And I knew with all of the orders coming in, I had to make this space work for me.
It's just my husband, our 2 dogs and cat, and me at home. We very rarely ever use our dining room. Only when we have more than 2 people over- which probably happens maybe 5 times a year. Even when our families visit, for many meals we cram ourselves in at the kitchen table and bar. So after clearing it with my hubster, I set out to turn the dining room into my LittleStitch workspace.
Holy bobbins, I am so in love with my new space! Patterns hung on the wall! Fabric organized and stored in baskets on the hutch! A desk space! Dining table turned sewing table covered with mats (thank you, Santa Lalla and Jake & Allie)! There's even a shelf next to my desk that holds all of the interfacing and sewing accessories! And the best part is- for those 5 times a year that we actually sit and eat in this room, we can easily clear away the mats and my sewing machine.
And there's one little fluffer-nuffer who might like my space even more than I do...
I'm sure this is the first of many changes LittleStitch will make to our home. I'm so thankful!
