My studio...the growing stash.

About eight months ago, I thought it would be fun to post a "tour" through my sewing studio. I often look back on that post and realize that my fabric buying has increased exponentially in the past year.

I have ideas swimming through my head on a daily basis, and I'll spot a fabric that fits with one of the ideas and, well, there goes $20. I rarely buy just one piece, often coordinates, and often at least a yard. It gives me options, especially if I don't know exactly what the project will be with the particular fabric.

I thought it was time for a "re-tour" of the see what's changed. My hubby thinks the fabric multiplies like rabbits.

From the entrance:

Walk around the white cutting table, turn to the right and...

Look a little to the left to see the back of my sewing machine (swoon, I love my machine):

And, turn around 180 degrees to see the ironing area, with drawers packed full of my other hobbies:

And newly added...head out the door of my studio, and just in the hallway is my new shipping area! My dad made the table many years ago, and I love it. I'm so excited to have a dedicated area for shipping. I'm sure I'll add more shelving and such as I determine my needs, but for now, this is perfect.
