My "sewing room"/creating space is upstairs in our old 1940's house. There are two bedrooms at the top of the stairs and of course, I have chosen the larger of the two for my space. The picture below shows my space in a rather messy condition as it has been much of the time lately. I guess that means I must be using it to create things but I am not sure that that is true. I think it is more like I haven't kept it too tidy lately.
Not the clearest picture but it gives you the general idea. The chest on the right is still unpainted, it has been a goal for several years now. I plan to move my room downstairs shortly, we will see if the painting gets done then.
I love my card catalog and I "file" many things in the drawers which are labeled, of course.
I smile when I see this sweet little frame given to me by a sweet friend. I look at it to be reminded of what I should be doing while in this room.
As you will notice I like to keep things around me in my room that remind me of swaps I have participated in and friends and family who have given them to me.
I found this pincushion while visiting my sister in California and my buttons are from years of collecting them. Many were my grandmothers.
This sign was a gift from my sister Becky. It hangs over my file boxes and basket of patterns.
I do love pincushions. My sister Lynda made the tomatoes and the purple pincushion is one I bought when we visited Hawaii. Of course we had to visit the fabric store in the town we visited on Maui. The heart pincushion is from a swap I participated in and I crocheted the flowered pincushion a few years ago.
This is my fabric, much of what you see is fabric to back the many quilts that are waiting to be completed. I do have just a few fabrics that I will have to think about before deciding how to use them. The glass front bookcase below these stacks holds a bit more.
The project on the corner of my work space has been sitting there a while but I can say that it is now a completed project. I started and completed it yesterday. I will share it in a blog post soon.
A sweet friend gave me the bird thimbles on top of my grandmothers spice chest.
Fabrics that are part of a couple of projects in progress.
This picture and the following are of some of my favorite things in my room.
This picture and the one below were taken a short while ago when my space was a little bit neater.
I should have posted a warning at the top of this post that I had many pictures to share. I love having my space to work in but even when it was the kitchen table I have always enjoyed making things, sewing, embroidery, cross stitch, crochet and many other crafts. I hope you enjoyed my little tour and will come back again for a visit. Visit Where Bloggers Create 2016 at My Desert Cottage to see many more sewing rooms, studios and kitchen tables.
