Curious about your sewing table...

I'm setting up mine right now, AND for my BIRTHDAY on Sunday I was given an OVERLOCKER! I must be a serious sewer now right? The overlocker has FOUR threads instead of TWO and is cute to boot in size, but just as heavy.

So, thanks to a lovely husbie (who cleaned up a whole bunch of boxes yesterday) I've got some space on my old sewing table, and have image googled peeps' sewing tables... now, I've only come across a few with BOTH machines on the one table... so my question for you dear reader....

If you have (or had) two machines, and overlocker and a straight stitch, and only ONE table... would you put the overlocker on the left of the straight stitch or put it on the right of the straight stitch?

I know, it's not really a big deal, and I bet if I told any of my real life friends that this is the dilemma I am facing right now, I would be laughed at! Seriously! But I'm soooooo curious about your sewing table, and if you have two machines and if you place them in a special position... for ease of use...

At this stage I've got the overlocker on the left (tucked near the corner of the table and the room) with some little shelves... then on the right/middle of the table is the straight stitch machine ... and then that leaves space for the cutting board... which is quite large...


Thanks dearhearts!

New home and some new listings on etsy

Hey pals,

I've moved and I've taken some little pics of some newly listed dresses!

It feels great to be in the house, and we're settling slowly into the place! Unfortunately as it's still winter, the house is a little cold, but we'll prob get a heater for next year!

Here's a pic I took in the backyard!

So I'll soon set up the sewing room, and whizzing up a storm! YAY!
