I have been waiting months and months to show you my Creation Station.
For some, their workshop is on the kitchen table or a small corner of the basement.
Me too...for years...until I sent the teenager to live in the basement
and took over his bedroom.
I doubt you will see another workstation quite like mine.
Well, I know each of us are different and none are exactly alike--
but I assure you--mine is, well Hillbilly Style!
(Let me remind you once again--a Hillbilly is NOT a redneck.
Ok, moving on...)
I was going to show you all the way around my room,
but you would just see a boring closet, desk, sewing zone.
But I will show you my Quiet Place:
The recliner is where I sleep.
Next to that is my Snoopy table that I LOVE,
along with my Scooby Doo alarm clock. (Yes Scooby Doo)
On the wall is my Peanuts Quilt still in the making.
I will use it at night when it's finished.
The shelf holds all my Peanut books.
Don't ya love it? It's a nice place to fall to sleep at night.
But even better is what I look at as I am falling to sleep.
Wanna see? In a minute...
I have seen many people on blogs show how they store their fabric
on comic book cardboards.
I just do not have money in the budget to buy cardboard!
So, I got to thinking...where do I have cardboard around the house?
Toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, wrapping paper rolls...
Ready to see the view from my recliner now?
Hows that for inspiring?
Shelves line the walls of my Creation Station.
I've got the fabric in rainbow order.
(You know...ROY G BIV.)
Here is the white/gray/black wall above my closet:
Of course this many rolls has taken months to collect.
We use very few paper towels (I'd rather wash towels than waste paper);
and I never use wrapping paper rolls. (umm I have fabric!)
So I have begged and begged and begged my friends to save theirs.
I've still a LONG way to go:
Green is finished but I need rolls for Blues, Purples, and turquoises.
Too bad they would be too expensive for you all to help me save
and send them by mail!
What about when I use the fabric and there are empty spaces?
Since I have plenty of fabric, I try not to buy more.
I have oodles of my own hand dyed and holiday fabric, and novelty,
as well as floral and paisley, and African and Asian
(YES lots more fabric) just waiting for their chance to get on the wall!
