Really bad photo and I did not stage it at all either (note the framed money from the first sale of my old dog treat business) but here is my little evolving sewing area. I have not sewed much since 8th grad home ec but I have wanted a sewing machine for the last several years. My mother and father-in-law gave me the machine for Christmas and Jeff gave me lots of sewing goodies so there was no longer an excuse to not jump right in.
I made a skirt for Chelsea's 1st birthday (coming up on the 18th!) and will post some photos. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out though there are lots of mistakes. It contains ruffles so they aren't that noticeable. Hee hee. Now I'm getting more confident and I think I might try some summer outfits for Chelsea. I will start small and easy and see how it goes. If you know of any easy patterns for little girl outfits please do share.
I have an old abandoned chair that I rescued from my father-in-law that I will be remaking into my sewing chair and I'm going to clean this area up a bit but for now it works. It is in the basement so natural light is at a premium. The old Singer table (with the machine still inside) is my husband's. He does have an eye for the good stuff after all! (Just kidding honey).
