Jennifer is having a fun blog hop featuring some of our favorite blogger's pretty sewing rooms.
This week she is allowing us to link up our less than pretty spaces, too.
This is where I sew. It is a work in progress.
I have a big room upstairs. It's the old master bedroom, where my mom lived for 11 years. After she moved to assisted living it didn't take me long to move all my sewing supplies to that room. My favorite part is the big picture window where I can look out over our street and see what is going on in the neighborhood. It let's lots of light into the room too.
I do most of my sewing on my old Bernina 153, but also have an 820 for quilting. (It's in the shop right now.) I recently got a Horn sewing table. It has lots of storage drawers and expands to make a big flat surface for quilting.
We have decided to remodel the bathroom connected to this room and install hardwood floors so I have held off really making this space my own with decorating and painting. This shows a nice overall view of the room. I have so many plans for that big wall. I have bunting to hang and gifts, lots of gifts, to display.
The big Bernina drops in so all is flat for quilting, but I still use the attached table on the 153. My laptop and camera are usually never far from my side when I am sewing. I enjoy listening to audiobooks while I sew. I'm listening to Blood and Beauty now. The fascinating story of the Borgia pope of the 15th century.
Last year I made this cutting table from 3 cubby storage units purchased at Target and a tabletop from IKEA. It fits my large cutting mat with room to spare. This side stores some of the projects I am working on and also some of the gifts I have received that will be on display when I complete the decorating of my room. In the bottom are bins of charm squares and my purse frames.
The other side holds the rest of my scraps in color coded bins. Target didn't have yellow or orange bins so I need to mark the beige with their colors.
My design wall is just a piece of batting hung between the closet and entry doors. I wish it was a little bigger.
I have a pretty good stash of fabrics. I keep the fat quarters folded. The half yards to 2 yard pieces are folded onto comic book backer boards. Larger pieces are stored on bolts (I get them free at Joann's) and kept in the closet. There are more scraps in one bin and works in progress and orphan blocks in another.
My thread stash is pretty sad. It is one of the things I really want to get organized and displayed when I finish the room.
I started making a muslin months ago and this is as far as I got. I probably should put a cute old dress on the body form.
Two favorite pillows and the caricature portrait my sister made for me decorate one corner of my room.
Thanks for visiting. I hope by this time next year I can show you a completely remodeled and decorated sewing room.
