Sewing House

Are these the cutest buttons you've ever seen? This image is from SnapDragon's blog. Can you see this idea translated to selvage buttons? With real buttons stitched on? Bliss~

A friend wrote something this week that made me smile. Someone was regretting not having a sewing room and Linda said "we have a sewing house". I am extremely fortunate to have a big well lighted room in my house to call my quilt-room, and here in the 5th Wheel RV at the farm I dedicated a quarter of the space to sewing. On the go I carry a busybag or busybox and can instantly have a sewing room anywhere. Life is good with a needle in hand.

Rob will be home this afternoon!

Cute buttons! I have a sewing area in our den, and it is so nice not to have to take down the sewing machine every day. I blogged about it on Wednesday :-)

When working on my Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt I put the individual pieces for each "flower" in a CD carrier - it has a zipper to close it - tuck in some thread and a small snipper and I'm set to work on the flowers where ever I go - I keep one CD carrier case filled - pieces for one flower in each CD section and never run out of something to stitch at a moment's notice.
