All's right in the world!

So I finally have my sewing machine back and in working order! Yeah - it's been a long hard 2 1/2 weeks. But in that time I collected lots of treasures to work with and I scored a great 2nd hand work table!

I also got my work space organized and now I can actually find stuff!

I had this cd cabinet that I turned sideways and was able to really utilize it for storage!

I made these great and incredibly cheap thread organizers for under $10.00! I bought bamboo cutting boards at the Dollar Store and used 2" finish nails and then mounted them with double sided tape.

Pretty cool right?!

And check out this awesome tote made out of a recycled dog food bag!

  1. Hi Deborah,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! Welcome to "blog world". My father is also from New Brunswick (Bathurst). My husband and I have travelled and visited your beautiful province several times and if we didn't have family here in Ontario whom we'd miss very much we would probably move to NB. I envy you for your very organized craft room. I wish I could keep mine as tidy as that! I'm your first follower (yeah!) and I'd love for you to follow me back! Good Luck with your Etsy shop!

  2. Very Cool!! I sooo need a thread organizer!! Thanks so much!!
