CTTY Winner & Happy Sewing Space...

Thank You to the ladies who linked their Christmas pressies to Christmas Through The Year last week...
There are some busy hands & great gifts being made!


The winner of the prize for August CTTY is
~SANDIE~
Well done Sandie, please email me your postal details so I can get your little parcel on its way to you!




*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
I am excited to show you some pics of my newly re-organised Sewing Space... Still a little bit of fine-tuning to do, but I am really so pleased with it...
Each shelf is graded to hold up to 150 kilograms... the unit is 1.5metres wide, the top shelf is 1.8m from the floor, each shelf is just over 40cm front to back... thanks to the MOTHs for putting it together♥
Books & magazines are readily accessible... the boxes are holding my patterns (Officeworks has been my very good friend!)... plastic tubs hold all sorts of other 'stuff'... there is even space for PegChook & her two crazy cousins!
And right in between the wall & the unit, a sliver of space for my cutting mats & ruler to stand up... plus somewhere to hang the odd WIP...
So much better than it was before!!
And I am even being a good girl and putting things away after I have used them or accessed them, instead of putting then down 'somewhere', LOL...
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
On Friday I started stitching another of the 'Winter Mate' little snowman, a freebie from Michelle Ridgway Designs ... unfortunately the skein of thread I was using didn't quite finish the design, so I started using a new skein... only to discover... there is a clearly visible colour difference... BAH!
My only option was to start over... so a second Winter Mate has already been stitched & today I will be working on making it up into a mini quilt.

~Hope everyone has had a great start to the week ~

Hello Anthea,

Congrats to Sandi, enjoy your prize.
Anthea your work space is so lovely, Officeworks has some great things to organize you.Good luck with the stitching. Colour changes in threads can be very annoying.

Happy days.

Looks awesome Anthea, I wished mine looked so neat and tidy. Oh I have such a bad habit of not putting things back after using them and just "putting them down"..
