This past week, it felt great getting back to sewing. I haven't done any projects since before we moved last fall, so this was a good test to see how well my studio's sewing area is set up.
My red vintage kitchen table is perfect for my sewing machine and the Hoosier cabinet's pull-out tabletop affords me even more room to work. So I was able to create five new pennant banners in no time at all.
While sewing, I listened to an audio book, At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson. I need to read it for my book group next week and it's been hard to find time to devote to it. A truly enjoyable book; here's what Amazon has to say about it: With his signature wit, charm, and seemingly limitless knowledge, Bill Bryson takes us on a room-by-room tour through his own house, using each room as a jumping off point into the vast history of the domestic artifacts we take for granted. As he takes us through the history of our modern comforts, Bryson demonstrates that whatever happens in the world eventually ends up in our home, in the paint, the pipes, the pillows, and every item of furniture.
Listening to Mr. Bryson was great as it made my sewing time so much happier. I was even able to photograph and list my new creations in my Etsy shop. These pennant banners are fun to hang wherever you want a spot of color and whimsy… in your studio, craft space, office, bedroom — anywhere!
Enjoy the weekend,
