I’m now joining in to “Sew Twelve”

I’ve needed some motivation lately to get back to sewing —
dresses for my daughter and I, and bags for my shop —
and I’ve come across Sew Twelve at ChickPea Sewing Studio!


Hopefully, by posting pictures and viewing others’ inspiring sewing pictures,
I’ll be able to catch up on my many sewing projects!

Here is a glimpse of my sewing area:

Not pictured is my Serger that resides on another table in the room,
so my daughter and I can share — there is always a traffic jam at the Serger!
It truly is my favorite toy/tool!

I’ve had this sewing machine for going on 20 years this June,
and my oldest son (now age 17) made this flower for me when he was probably 6 or 7!
This machine has traveled along with us through so many moves,
I honestly don’t know how it’s survived!

Anyone else have to be FIERCELY protective of their sewing scissors?
I finally bought another pair of Fiscars the other day,
after my final pair in the house would only cut about an inch at a time!

New pics to come soon, as I’ve completed a few bags I hope to add to my shop soon!

  1. I follow you on twitter (ajoyfulmommy) and I enjoy your tweets. I am curious about your thread holder. I have one similar to that and have wondered how to hang it….any tips? Mine has nothing to hang it with, I suppose it’s meant to sit on top of a table.


    1. Well, I got my handy-man-in-training #2 son to screw it to the wall for me — he said he used 1 1/2″ wood screws.

      He also found a stained and glossed piece of wood in the shed (from a a previous project that was never finished), and put nails in it to hang my bobbins on as well. I’d be lost without it — I really disliked those bobbin boxes!

      Thank you for stopping by! It’s fun to share the crafting bug with others!
