Sewing Space Refresh and Reorganization

It's hard to put into words what coming home after spending 5 months traveling and living in a 75-square foot space was like. What I can tell you is that after unpacking everything out of Wabi-Sabi Overland, I spent the majority of my first 24 hours at home in my sewing room. A lot has changed in my sewing space;...

Quilting in Wabi-Sabi Overland

The Sparkler Mini Quilt was the first quilt that I needed to baste in order to quilt while traveling in Wabi-Sabi Overland. The entire habitat / living environment is 75 square feet and much of the floor space is taken up by the bed, kitchen, entry, bathroom space, and dinette.

One of the challenges of living in 75 square feet is storing all the things that we need and want in an organized and tidy manner. For us, being organized really helps us feel cozy, and I am very...
