Sewing machine's new clothes

The sewing machine got a new dress - hoping to get her into working mood more often. Besides, the original plastic cover was just ugly.

There is a small summer wardrobe fashion show on the front to give hints what to make or what to wear. (Despite all that endless snow outside.)

Needle patches

It is my strong belief, that workspace and all the tools must be something personalised and inspiring. After all, they will accompany you through all the good and bad working days and they will stay, even if the things you make are bound to go to new homes.
The one thing that I cannot live without, whether working with yarn, fabric or beads, is a pincushion. And it was time to try something new: a little bit of patchwork, more applique, a lot of stitching and a crochet flower... The fabulous fabrics are all vintage home textiles collected from second-hand shops.

All the needles and pins fit together in one place now and can be organised conveniently to different patches.
