Pressing Accessories Organization
My mother-in law gave me this J. P. Coats tin for Christmas. It's perfect for holding all my ironing accessories like my starch, ham, lint brush, hemming guide, and the iron water pitcher. I love how it even goes with the colors and look of my newly decorated room.
My sewing table is at a right angle to my ironing board, so I can set the tin on the table and have everything within reach.
I haven't had time to do much else in my room yet. I still want to reorganize the closet and stash, buy and decorate a large bulletin to put over my ironing board, and make machine covers for my serger and sewing machine.
One thing I want to do this year is to keep better track of the projects I've sewn. Christina at Assorted Notions blogged about how she plans to keep track of her yardage purchased and sewn in a fun vintage style notebook. I have a similar notebook that Katie gave me last year that I haven't done anything with yet. I'm not going to track my yardage in and out, because I simply don't buy that much unless I have a specific project in mind, but I am going to keep track of each project I sew, write a description, pattern, etc and glue in a swatch of the fabric used. I've started my first page for the new year...my new curtains!
On another night, my pink eye is not improving, and I need your prayers. I'm especially worried about Elliot getting it, because viral pink eye is supposed to be highly contagious, and I know that he will be miserable and hard to handle if he gets it. I'm pretty miserable the way it is, and I'm an adult who can cope...well most of the time. I've had a few crying spells today. The extra lubrication feels good on my eyes anyway! =)
