what I do at 4 am

I fell asleep at 8 to avoid my nuisance of a nephew in his rampage through the house but then ended up waking up bright eyed at the lovely hour of 4. While browsing the blogosphere and trying to scratch my shopping itch I kept thinking about how when I move I can't bear to leave my sewing machine behind and how it will be coming with my on the first round of moving things.
I found this and that lunch box is such a cute idea to store embroidery stuff and yarn!

Ok back to the 4am rant. I came across this Home Ec class and sorta spur of the moment signed up for it! I am soo beyond excited because I've had my sewing machine for awhile and beside the little projects I have done here and there I haven't done much on it yet.
I'm self taught and with school and work to juggle there is not much time left there so I can teach myself but this was an awesome way to really dive into sewing and get alot the basics out of the way so I can move onto more fun and exciting things like making clothes!
Hopefully school and work won't get too hectic and I'm banking on this class finishing pretty early on in the semester and for Ross to give me space to sew my heart out but again I am really excited and looking forward to the class.

that's really awesome! I always wished I knew how to sew, I have no idea beyond a button and simply stitch. You are so crafty!!!! Baking cakes, sewing... such a domesticated badass.

that's awesome! I love that you signed up for this spur of the moment. I adore your photography (mad skills!) and can't wait to see what you'll sew (probably not anything for that nephew, though, right? ;-o)

I'm so excited for Home Ec, too! Your photos are absolutely beautiful! I love your sewing area (I would love to have a cute hanging thread storage area like that!), and that box is such a creative and adorable way to store sewing gear. When I moved a few years back, I took my sewing machine with me in my car to be sure it would stay safe. Yours is amazing - what year is it?
