Everyone who knows me understands that I have a passion for running. Most people also know that I have a passion for sewing (embroidery, digitizing...) as well. Last year and for most of this year I have had to temper my running due to an injury. Sewing has kept me sane- or retain some sanity at least. I decided to start up a small digitizing business as well called Hug Longer Digital Designs. I do generic and custom designs. You can find me on Facebook- Hug Longer Digital Designs Facebook page and on Etsy as well Hug Longer shop. Because I am now using my sewing area more I have had some challenges with organization. I share the room with a treadmill and running paraphernalia. It was beginning to feel as if the walls were closing in with stuff everywhere. Something had to change. I was challenged by an organization event to get things cleaned up and I got serious.
Here is the Before picture of my sewing area, it is embarrassing to even share!
Michael Miller Love to Sew collection I knew that I wanted to make table curtains to cover my fabric storage areas and thought it would be nice to have a matching serger cover and ironing board cover. Once my fabric arrived I could barely wait! Since the patterns were fairly easy to make I did them myself. Here are a few of the after pictures.
Now for some more good news......My foot has healed and my running is picking up :)
Dear sewing machines and digitizing programs....you now have to share a bit more of your time with my other passion. When I am not sitting with you I am probably up in the mountains playing :)
