My new sewing area is so cheerful...it has lots of light! It is so pleasant to work here.
The room is also my office, so my computer is nearby. I listen to classical music radio stations while I sew. I love it! I only had access to a small TV in my old sewing area and I find that it is much nicer to listen to music. I am really enjoying the radio because I get a variety of music without having to change CDs and listen to ones I have heard before. This is bringing back memories of listening to music for classes, and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed doing that. Great exercise for my brain and ears.
My handwork is slow now because I am enjoying my sewing machine so much. I seem to be "hooked " on bags. It is therapeutic.
Below is my new favorite. French seams inside again......I love the lack of any loose threads. A French seam is really a double seam, the first of which is a 1/4" seam sewn on the outside of the garment (bag). Counter-intuitive. Next the bag is turned inside out and seams are pressed. A wider seam is sewn on the inside, enclosing the first seam. Turn right side out again and press. Voila'. Works best on light-weight cloth because of the layers.
