getting there...

Hello, happy Tuesday. How have you all been? 

I've been busy unpacking, and organizing, and shopping, and cleaning, and organizing some more :) 


The other day though I needed some sewing therapy so I pulled out tons of fabric scraps and made a new cover for my bench cushion. Quite colorful, isn't it? But since it's going to live in my sewing room (yes, yes!!! I'm going to have a sewing room and I'm extremely over the moon excited about that) all this crazy colorfulness is perfectly fine.


It was a fun, super easy project. Just lots of 3.5" squares all joined together and quilted along both sides of each seam. I then wrapped the patchwork around the bench cushion and hand stitched it in place. Probably not the most professional way to do it but it worked like a charm :)

I've also been doing a lot of this.


 I actually quite enjoy assembling the furniture, especially when it's a new fabric cabinet.


I love how much fabric I was able to fit into this Ikea cabinet. And, I simply had to take picture of my organized stash because I don't think it will ever be so neat again :)

Hope you all have a very lovely rest of the day. Svetlana

  6. Love the cushion! I have an old church pew which has been needing a cushion & cover for some time! Your fabric cupboard is fab! But you did buy a back up for all the extra fabric you will be accumulating, right? Jxo

  7. Love the patchwork. I have to cut up my scraps and give it a try. Where did you get the cabinet?! I'm on the hunt for one for my repainted/reorganized (in the process) sewing room. It's fabulous!

  8. wow! what a beautifully organized stash! I can sooo relate to needing a photo to prove that it was neat at one point in time. (my whole craft room resembles that!)

  15. cabinet is just the job for your fabric stash, well done on making it too. Cover looks good on the bench, 3.5" blocks more appealing to me that 2.5", this has given me an idea, I have a very old stool granny made, she died in 1956, it has a tapestry top that is thread bare in places, think you have inspired me to make a quilted top for it

  18. Gotta love the Ikea cabinets for fabric storage! I just did the same when I took over the kids lounge and turned half of it into my sewing room. They didn't seem to be using it much but now that i have bought a nice new tv and gas heater they are congregating in there again!! My fabric has managed to stay fairly tidy. The cabinets make it easier to see what you have. Love your patchwork bench :)
