My New Sewing Area

My family of 5 lives in a two bedroom, one bath, 1150 square foot house. I've never complained about the size. In fact, it only makes me want to always live in a modest sized home because there is so much less to clean which leaves more time for sewing ;). The only "inconvenience", so to speak, has been not having anywhere to put my sewing stuff. In the past, I've taken over the kitchen table and the area surrounding. However, on Saturday, my husband was moving our computer table over so I could have more room to sew around the kitchen table. The computer table broke while he was moving it (it was already kind of broken). My in-laws came to the rescue (as usual) and brought us a huge table to put the computer on (very sturdy) and my husband's old desk from his room. More furniture actually makes for more room in that small space AND I get to always have my sewing machine, serger, and snap press at the ready. Saves me so much time not having to set everything up when I want to sew. Does this mean I have to start cooking and having family meals now that my kitchen table is no longer buried in sewing machines and fabric??


  1. Hey Jana, hope you don't mind me stalking your blog. I just love your's and Jodi's craft blogs. It makes me think I should start one too, but I have no time.

    Anyhoo, I love the outfit you made with Jodi, and I also love ya'lls aprons. Your kids are growing so fast. Or at least since I saw them last.

    I will have to convo you on etsy for a longer question I have about your sewing machine. I am about to get a new one myself. Anyhow, congrats on being a supermom.


  2. Looks awesome. Tell Russ to come clean my sewing area. It's trashed!

  3. What makes you think Russ cleaned my sewing area?? All he did was break a table... :)

  4. More "together" time!
