My Work Space

My workspace is my kitchen table. It's the only place large enough that I can spread out a giant piece of paper and make my sewing patterns. Also its the ONLY space I have to work with. We probably see the top of my table once a week. I make the hubby eat dinner in a selected corner, and he's not allowed to touch anything. 
Not until today did I realize I spend a lot of time ON the table. Then I wonder why I have to keep my kids from breakdancing on the table.
The book is Little Green Dresses, and I have brought it up over & over because its my ONLY book I look to for making my own clothing & patterns. 
If your interested in learning to make your own patterns, BUY IT! It's what I use :)

I used to take over the dining room table too...then I got a sewing table...AND a sewing room:) For now anyway! And sometimes it's so much easier to get ON the table to draw/cut/play with fabric.
