Where Bloggers Create 2014

I really love my little slanted ceiling upstairs sewing room.  It is cluttered with little treasures and projects in all stages of the creative process.

I have old tables that belonged to my grandparents and a mish mash of dressers and other odds and ends for furniture.

I do have a plan to put all of this in order and a color scheme in mind but I get so busy sewing and with other projects and my sewing room makeover just keeps being put aside.

This little mouse by Diane Freeman Designs is a new addition to my sewing room.  I found this sweet little mouse while browsing in an antique store with my sister Becky in Beaumont, California.

The pillow on the left was a project from the Ruffles blog hop, it was fun to make.

My sewing machine cover is not new but I love it because it is a combination of embroidery and a little quilting.

My dress form is also new to my space.  I am looking forward to fixing her up and she should probably have a name.   My sister Michele, who is a treasure hunter at heart found her for me.

It is nice to have a space to clutter up with little things that are special to me and make me think of special people in my life.  The little cats belonged to my mom and each item in these pictures has a little story behind it.

Who doesn't love lace.

So many buttons!

And trims of all types and colors.

This is the area that really needs attention.  The fabrics are stacked on wire racks that sag and wobble.  I have a bookcase and shelves that it will be sorted, stacked and neatly placed on.  I was hoping to have it done before taking pictures but now I will be able to show you before and after.

This wire basket is full of projects waiting for completion.  Some just begun, others almost done and still others in the middle of the process.  I can't wait to get that basket emptied.

The embroidered picture below shows my color scheme for this room.  I want a cheerful light turquoise on the walls with white furniture and a few cheerful accents.  We'll see what happens.

  2. What wonderful memories - the best part of any sewing room! blessings, marlene

  3. Sherry, you have a few treasures in that room! Even more so because it speaks of memories, and I love it!
    Blessings Dear,

  4. WOW!!! Thanks for sharing your space..loved my visit...and the teal embroidery at the end is super nice:):)

  5. Oh Sherry-- I am so in love with your upstairs room-- love the slanted ceiling-- that just makes it all so cozy. You've created such a comfy little sewing nook-- I know I'd be happy to spend the day here!! I think it's perfectly beautiful here--


  6. Well first. I have to follow you because we're both apparently are quilters. Or at least admire quilts. Have an addiction to fabric. And we have the same name! Yes I am following and now I am going to read your post!
    Sherry (too)

  7. Oh I love and your turquoise plan! I love your space. It reminds me of my bedroom as a child. My room had a dormer window like yours except it opened into a regular ceiling but the area around the window was slanted. Your space is beautiful. I had to laugh when you said you didn't get to get it all ready for company. Do we ever? We're too busy creating! I didn't get all I wanted done either. Now we can do a before and after like you said.
    Great minds think alike. Thanks for sharing your link so I could meet you!
    Come and see me.

  8. Ah, a sewing paradise, Sherry! : ) Love your mouse with her thimble in a basket. Perfect addition to your sewing room. I have a Christmas elf that I couldn't bear to put away after the holidays as he is holding a needle and thread and sewing stockings. I keep him standing near my sewing machine. It usually takes this linky party to get me motivated to get my projects done. I usually do stuff in my room right after and just before this party. : )

  9. Your whole room is lovely, but I fell for the turquoise drop leaf table and that adorable mouse! Thanks for the tour.

  10. Your space is just lovely...thanks so much for sharing ♥

  12. Thank you so much for joining the party Sherry!! You are lucky to have some things that you got from your grandma. :) I also enjoyed seeing that we girls all seem to love our laces and buttons!!! Hope you are enjoying the hop!!!!

  13. Oh my, this looks like such a fun, comfortable room to spend an afternoon in! Neat to have an area like this just for yourself. :-) Thank you for sharing your space with us!

  14. What a wonderful space. I think your "mish mah" of furniture works beautifully. I too love lace and buttons. The ruffled flower pillow is adorable. Thanks for sharing your space with us.

  15. How cute your sewing space is! You certainly have crammed a lot into a small space. It's all neat and ordered though. I love your eclectic furniture collection. It reminds me so much of my Grandma's (now passed) sewing room and bedroom furniture.

  16. How charming is your creative space and I too love those slanted ceilings!! I have a dress form just like that and I have my wedding goen on it in my guest room.....
    Thanks so much for stopping by!!
