As I was sewing I felt that my needle had a tiny burr. I cleaned all the fuzz out of my sewing machine and put in a new needle. I've been cleaning out my machine more frequently lately. Then, I decided to clean other areas of my sewing table. My favorite pincushion is one that my ex-daughter-in-law (still my friend) bought me years ago at a crafts fair. It is made in a cappuccino cup and saucer with a real silver spoon attached to the saucer. The pincushion part was looking dirty. I removed all the pins and the pearls surrounding it. I wish I had gotten "before" photos. The spoon was very tarnished. I had just bought a beautiful brown print fat quarter for another project. I thought it could simulate coffee. I covered the pin area and re-glued the pearls into place. I got out the silver polish and cleaned up the spoon. Then, I re-glued the flower that had come off long ago. It really looks cute, don't you think?
Another item in my sewing room that makes me happy is a sewing box that my son and family gave me.
Luckily all that it required was dusting. This is a good view of the lid. My grandchildren call me "Grammy". I understand that the first one they ordered said "granny" and they re-ordered it to say "Grammy". What's in your sewing room that makes your space personal and makes you happy?
