I really, really meant to get downstairs and take more photos to add to that post, but it didn't happen. So - I'm doing a part 2 of my blog tour.
Really - I'm just showing you the back wall - the notions storage. The back wall also holds the chatchkies and memorabilia.
On that top shelf - on the ridge edge, you'll see a red tin. It holds my grandma's crochet hooks. I don't really crochet - but I can't bring myself to get rid of them - they bring me joy and happiness!
Under the floating shelves is an old oak entertainment center. It holds my sock yarn stash, swift, ball winder, embroidery hoops. On top - there is a jar of ribbon, a Seattle Starbucks mug that holds colored pens, ribbon storage, a glass jar with spools of new silk thread and a metal basket full of zippers.
Here's a close up of the button jars. I can always tell when the cleaning woman has been - because they are rearranged! The buttons are mostly sorted by color.
On the bottom shelf - there are these 2 adorable dog pin cushions. The little pink one I bought - he still has tags hanging on him, but the green one was a gift made by a friend who no longer blogs or sews much - but she loves her dogs as much as I do. Next to the dogs is a glass jar of old wooden spools of thread. I do not use these threads. And next to them is some decorative spools of ribbon.
At the very top of the shelves is a very special Puffy. Krystle didn't have a blanket - she puffy was her security and she went nowhere without it. The very favorite one was a blue and white puffy. One day while she was in pre-school a random dog came and stole it off the playground - the entire school went chasing after that dog to get it back - and they did. This is a holiday version which stays with me for safekeeping until there is a grand to share it with.
In the corner of my cutting table there is more clutter. The little pink organizer thing on the left holds all my cutting tools, nail file, measuring tape, other necessary items - it makes it easy to pack for retreats so I don't forget anything. The wicker basket hold patterns I've made or the ones I want to make soon. the pile in front is new and wanting to be made up. The metal basket holds more buttons.
Finally - we get to the pattern storage - it's under the other window in the room, between 2 chairs.
Currently on top of the boxes are the remains of my circle skirt project - which I messed up and haven't finished. Story of my life. . .
Carolyn reminded me that I need to showcase the cutting table - so look for a 3rd post on my space soon. All about the cutting table.
If you came over from the CSC - thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment - I love meeting new people.
