A Peek At Mables Sewing Room

I know I've posted this before, but I've done a little rearranging.  I got a couple of new pieces to add to my room. I think I need to straighten out the fabric a bit.... why bother the second I start a new project it gets messed up again.  Do you see the dress form on the right.  That's new, picked up that lovely lady, we'll call her Callie, last night.  One of our quilt shops is going out of business..  Sad :(  It is full of costume jewelry.  I have a thing for them.  Got them all at Goodwill and of course the auction. 

This little gem was also at the quilt shop. Antique dresser turned cutting table. Ethel and I hauled it up stairs, glued and banged it back together. What would I do without her.  It's perfect, I love the doors. and the color works well enough with the room.  

If you noticed there were no knobs. I tried to make monkey knots with super balls.  Ever make one. You need 16 fingers. So as you can see I gave up on that idea.  I used the super balls alone. Screwed from inside just like a regular knob. 
 I like them.  Hunter is my hand model.

Isn't Callie beautiful with all her pins on. I'm always on the look out for them.
I finished organizing about 10:00pm Gracie, 
(my grand-dog) 
and I lied on the bed and just admired everything, and thought,
Is this Heaven!


  1. Oh Callie is fabulous!! I am blinded by all of those fabulous pins! Thank you so much for coming to the dress form ball!


  2. What a clever way to display all the pins you love to collect. Hope y'all have fun at the ball!

    1. Thank you! I think she is quite fabulous! Just found this morning 2 more pins at Goodwill. Love that place!


Thank you for your comment, we look forward to reading it.
