For those that wanted to see my sewing room - here are a few pictures:

This is taken from the front of my sewing table -

basically the center of the room, and this is the door that lets you in. This is my new spot for my design wall!! Instead of hiding my closet, it now is against the wall.......

I do like it better here.

I did not move from where I stood, but just moved the camera to show you the next corner..........

Oh, I lied!! this is the place I sew.... To the left of me is project ideas, DVD's, audio books, CD's - it's my entertainment area. It's a little bookshelf under the bulliten board that is covered with things. okay, next picture please!!

this is my sewing area - I can now watch normal TV or shows on quilting that I have on DVD (or a movie if I want!!)

I know some people that can't sew with noise around. Me, I concentrate better with it!!!

Here is the other corner!!

Here is my little library of books that interest me. It's mostly qulting, but I do have gardening books in there too. And my new TV and DVD player - well, new additons to the room anyway!!

And this is my room.
Not very big, too full of things, but it's working for me. yes, I have (BIG) dreams of another space to create in, but this is mine for now. And I like it, as messy as it is......

this really messing looking part here, well it used to be hidden with the design wall!!! It looks worse than it is, but I really am having trouble getting it to fit in here nicely. I didn't realize how much stuff I had collected over the years till iwas told to have it in one room.... I won't show you the boxes in the hallway that holds my cross sitch stuff.............


  1. How cool is it that your have your own space!!!!

  2. Thanks for the tour of your sewing room! That was fun.

  3. I bet you don't even cross-stitch any more. Quilting has taken over. I have a few boxes of that stuff and one day I'm going to finish it all. Yeah right! Thanks for the tour.

  4. What a great space to work in! Thanks for the tour!

  5. I have a cross stitch project from nearly 15 years or more that I just pulled out to finish. Sigh, some day I might have my own room. I use the dining room table and store fabric in the spare room but it works out for me.

  6. really enjoyed the tour, thanks!

  7. Your room looks to be about the same size as mine... 10'x12'... It is amazing how much you can jam into a room hey!?! lol! Sending you an email with links to view my sewing room...
    Happy stitchings!

  8. What a great space. I love my sewing room. I call it My Happy Place--Hubby calls it The Hidie Hole.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. I loved your tour! :) Looks like a great spot for creating!

  10. love your sewing room - it's nice to have a room to be creative in
