The journey started last winter when the basement got finished and I moved all my scrapbooking stuff down there. I had a whole room just for sewing stuff, but more important, for inspiration! I hated sitting in that room working on projects--it was so dull and boring. But now, I love being in that space. Lots of little bits were inspired by Pinterest, but many are my own little bits and pieces put together.
One of my favorite areas is the wall above the bookshelf. I picked up a printer's tray at an antique shop in town, and then I began filling it with vintage spools, needle cases, and sewing tools.
