I’ve been doing a lot of organizing and trying to make the ideal workspace for myself.  I really like the space that I have now.  My favorite thing about it is all the natural sunlight!  It keeps my sewing room bright and cheerful.  I absolutely love my sewing space!

It is time for a new sewing machine mat.  You might be wondering why I need a mat under my sewing machine.  I move my sewing machine around a lot on the table.  Sometimes I push it up against the wall to make space for measuring or writing.  Sometimes I push it to the far edge to make space for my computer.  Whatever the case may be, the fact is that I “push” it, rather than “carry” it.  This sewing machine is like 40 lbs!  I don’t want to carry it if I don’t have to.  And if I didn’t have a mat under it, there would be marks left on my beautiful white table if I tried to push it!  Therefore, I need this sewing mat.

The mat is just simple charm square patchwork from a remaining stack I have left from prior projects.  I love the warm earthy colors.

Do you like it?  Do you use a sewing machine mat as well?  Am I the only odd person that constantly moves my sewing machine around on a daily basis?

Thanks for stopping in today to see what’s been happening at Pinwheel Cottage!

Lots of love,

Susie  :)

  • Edie Frasier - I really like your sewing machine mat. Fig Tree Quilts makes some of my favorite fabrics and Strawberry Fields Revisited is a favorite of mine. Love the bright corner window you have.

    • Susie - Yes, I agree! I LOVE Strawberry Fields revisited too! I have them in mini-charms and still thinking up ideas on what to make with it! Thanks for visiting my blog today ;-)July 5, 2017 – 7:35 pmReplyCancel
