On My (Mom’s) Cutting Table

sewing table

I’m home visiting my family on vacation this week and I’m taking full advantage of my mom’s sewing room set-up…huge cutting table, nice sewing machine and iron, good lighting, etc.  And for my birthday, she got me new scissors!  I’ve wanted a pair of Gingher dressmaker shears for a long time and I finally have my own pair – they’re a dream to cut with and I can’t believe I’ve gone so long cutting with my trusty orange Fiskars (not to knock them or anything…these are just nicer).

The above is fabric I bought last year from Mood for a top that I started and finished yesterday – love it when that happens!  I’ll post pictures of the finished garment next week.
