New Sewing Room

It is nearly finished!  Do you want to have a peek?  Please forgive the fuzziness of the photos.  It has been difficult getting photos when the sun is out.  Even when it is out, its rare to shine directly into this room.

In one corner there is my sewing space.  I have a few lights, my radio and my sewing machine.  The basket there is for Chaos pieces that I keep trying to piece from the scraps just above it on the table.  And then, of course, there is the Community Quilt that I am actually, really, honestly trying to quilt right now.


And then if you turn around, at your back is the new design wall and my ironing board.  I also have a working 1911 sewing machine there. I would love to restore it  have someone else restore it, but that's SUPER far down on the to-do list :)

See on the design wall a little rectangle of piecing? It's eventually going to be part of Chaos too....



And then on the long wall of the room, I have two bookshelves and a CD tower to fill with books, fabrics, baskets, etc.  They just wouldn't fit in one photo together!  Anyway, on the left there are two baskets that hold ongoing projects, like the Birdie Stitches top, for example.  There's thread, ribbon, etc.


The tower holds my pretty small FQ collection in the middle.

And then on the right are my books, IKEA fabric mini-bolts and little storage bins.  They will eventually be placed on the wall on a peg board organizer thing.  The little bins hold my scissors, bobbins, basting pins...and on, and on, and on.




In the bookshelf on the right I have my stash. It's pretty tiny, so it fits in there just fine.


And that's it!  That's my quilting space.  I still have  things to get up on the walls like my peg board organizer, a white board that holds my to-do list, etc.  They might go up this weekend.  Really, though, I would love to just spend this weekend breaking in the new space!  Can't wait!

Woooowww it looks lovely, Cindy! So bright! I get the feeling that that cd unit for fat quarters will get a little more filled up.

I like the size of your stash. It shows restraint :-)

What a great space! It seems quite light and open, plus so organized. I'm impressed!

Looks nice Cindy! I'm jealous of all your shelving!

Cherie said...

Cute room wish I could turn my room into something like that, but the parents would never allow it. When I move out I'll dedicate a room just for crafting.

Great 1911 hand-crank. The thing I love about so many vintage machines is that they need very little besides oiling. (And for cleaning, cotton swabs and sewing machine oil work great--and take very little time.) Do you have the lid for the base?
