SATURDAY MORNING CUTTING TABLE ROLL CALL...

...truth be told
my cutting table is in a straight up mess!  There certainly hasn't been any production coming out of this sewing room.  Been too busy with end of school year close-out, traveling to my grandson's graduation, finishing up this loooong 4-day workweek, and sewing project indecisiveness to produce anything.

 I am perched up in here this morning however.  Enjoying my non-traditional breakfast (perhaps a southern thing).  Left over of Parmesan grilled Salmon, pasta w/Broccoli, and a big old glass of Iced Tea w/ lemon (tea Arnold Palmer style).
So the main goals for today are:
1) clean up my cutting table mess ( I do commend myself; however, in that I've kept it clear for quite some time); and
2) muslin a project I've been pondering for a while.

 Hope you have a great sewing related day...

    1. I think putting pattern pieces back into the envelopes is the part of sewing that I like the least.

  2. My sewing room sometimes ends up looking like a hurricane hit it when I am working on a project. It is frustrating because I lose things I need to use like scissors, needles, etc. So I now straighten things out a bit when I reach a stopping point - it's been helping!

  3. I spent all last night cleaning my room so I could get a bead on it today. Then this morning life interrupted with necessary errands and a visit from a good friend. But that's OK. After she left I finished doing the fit alterations on my latest project and hopefully will cut it out after supper. I am praying for rain tomorrow. You know how that works!

    1. It was a good start Diane, and I even started to work on a jacket project.

  6. I finally swept the floor in my shecave... I had thread scraps all over. My hands were forced to sweep when I noticed thread scraps making their way throughout the house.. lol. Nothing like dinner for breakfast.

    1. Sheila I'll have to take a picture of this sewing room floor to share. I can hardly believe how much thread is on it. Well at least it means we are being productive - right?!!!

  7. Oh Ms. Faye...you're definitely not alone with left overs for breakfast...I do it all the time too! (That is if there's anything left over, LOL!!) I wonder sometimes if there is a specific reason we in the sewing community could figure out as to why we have such issues with project decisions at times. It's truly frustrating!
