Work Space Finally Straightened Out!

Last weekend I purged my work space and reshuffled some things around. We gave our daybed away to a deserving college student, and in turn it made way for the Ikea cast away chairs from the living room. I'm hanging on to these for Caitlin when she has her own place, but for now, if you would like to stop by and hang out with me in my studio, I have some comfy chairs you can sit in.  My sweet husband bought me this cool canvas bin with caster wheels. I love it! We bought it from here . This company, named Steele, have been manufacturing these since 1921. I love the look of them, and how effortlessly it rolls around. Now all my fabric scraps have a classy place to hang out in.
 Next on the cutting table, after my skirt that is, will be some baby items out of these soft cotton lawn prints. The aqua colored fabric is eco friendly bamboo linen. In person this fabric is really beautiful and soft.
 The other aqua one is of course dotted swiss.  I have some cute ideas for all of them, so you will have to check back to see what they become. Now I'm off to cut my skirt and top out.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!


  1. *Like* The chairs, the fabric and the bin!

  2. i wish i could actually come and hang out xo

  3. I LOVE the. Bin - wish you hadn't posted the link to the shop where they came from - there went 15 minutes, gone, zapp, never to be retrieved. You guys have really good taste. Does it feel good to be in an organized room? If I lived within driving distance I WOULD SO BE THERE sitting on Caitlin's "new" chairs while you sewed. Together with the other two posts, I can picture you really well.

    I forgot to mention in my comment regarding your new RH chairs that they are going to look spectacular as well when you have the room decorated for Christmas!

  4. @ Yes it sure does feel good to have that room more of where I want it to be. We had Caitlin's day bed in there that she didn't want anymore, and it was taking up valuable space. When the chairs leave, I will be able to put up more storage. Yesterday I was sewing in there and feeling so much more at peace!

    Thanks for the compliment on the chairs. I was just picturing them at Christmas the other day as well!

    The shop where I got the bin is really neat. I think I have mentioned it on here before. I left my card with them, since they specialize in local artisans :)

  5. i love your canvas bin - it's as great as your husband buying it for you!
