Hi! I’m Alison from the shop and blog aPearantly Sew. I want to say a big thank you to Lindsay for allowing me to hang out with you guys today.
When Lindsay asked me if I would be willing to do a guest post on my creative space, I immediately said “yes!”. Then I thought about it for a minute and had to laugh. I don’t have my own sewing room, or even my own sewing space for that matter. This is where I sew everyday…
Why yes, that is my dining room table. We are currently living in a small house, and I have two toddler boys. So you can imagine that there isn’t much space for Mommy to spread out and be creative. But I make do. (Almost) every day at naptime, I bring out my sewing machine, and for a couple of hours I get to be alone and create. Here are just a few things that inspire me on a daily basis...
My sewing machine. It was a birthday gift from husband last year. I love this machine.
Coffee. I am a total addict, and I definitely need a cup (or two or three) to wake up and get my creative juices flowing.
My fabric stash. I am a fabric junkie. This is about a third of what I own. Sometimes I sit down in the floor and spread my fabrics out all around me and plan out my upcoming projects. Other than the actual sewing, this is my favorite part. I love to pair the fabrics up and plan what they will become. It’s such a rewarding process.
Thank you so much for taking the time to peek into my life for a little while. I enjoyed being here!
