Sewing room storage unit and using up scraps

Oh! Whew! The past ten days have been delightfully busy. I’ve wanted to share here on my blog as things have been happening but just had to admit that being busy is tiring and sitting in front of a computer screen when my brain is crying out for sleep just isn’t an option! I’ve decided not to attempt writing a chronological post – it would be VERY long and could lack the spark that comes from writing about what’s stirring my creative juices right now 🙂

So I’ll jump straight in and share what I’ve been doing today: I have been inspired to design and make a cover for a mobile storage unit I bought from Hobbycraft at the weekend. It is a metal unit with plastic drawers and rolls along on casters.

Custom made ruler rack

Just a quick post to declare my ‘Main Crush’ this Monday. It could be this beautiful ruler rack fashioned from a raw block of wood…

But really there’s no contest:  My choice is my wonderful Dad who made this rack for me 🙂 He’s just great, my Dad. Eighty years old, so in love with my Mum – they’ll be celebrating 58 years of marriage later this year – and so in love with his family, willing to help us all any way he can.
If this rack has given you a storage idea or maybe even roused a bit of sewing room envy 😉 then you can purchase commercially made racks like this one from Creative Grids or this one made by Prym.
Linking with Beth at ‘Cooking Up Quilts’ for Main Crush Monday. Beth is crushing on her new Chaco chalk marker.
Happy stitching.
