So I read in all these wonderful craft blogs and sewing books about how you should set up your creative space. While it all makes sense to me and I love the idea of color-coordinating my threads and never unplugging or unthreading my machine, we've got a long way to go here.
Currently, I have my machine on a cheap card table and my fabrics and notions in 3 or 4 different places. You should see me work this way...I have to keep the presser foot just so to keep the machine from going too fast. If it does get too fast, it creates this crazy vibration with the table resulting in what I like to call sewing speed wobble. Seriously, my poor machine is bouncing up and down like crazy. It reminds me of that old movie footage where the bridge is flopping around in the wind and then disintegrates. Can't be good for the machine. Sure doesn't make it easy to see where you're going.
Needless to say, I'm stalking craigslist lately to find a cheap (maybe free!), big, possibly L-shaped desk to set up shop. I'll get to color-coordinating later. For now, I'd be happy just to not have my machine wiggle when I reach a good speed (read: very slow...).
Just sharing my latest little crafting dilemma. Hope you're all having a great week. The kids are in bed and I'm off to have a glass of wine and pizza with my man.
ps: Oh! I did make a summer top today during naps! I'll post pictures tomorrow once I hem it up.
