My New Sewing Room...Before

What a mess! I thought I'd share a few photos of my new sewing room - this is how it looks this very minute. There's my sewing machine in the corner next the the BIG TV.

And on the other side of the room there is Cooper's crate in the foreground with a BIG chair in the corner. (There will be lots of hand sewing done in this chair...)

And here's the view from the doors.

And now my challenge is:
1. Get Ikea table top and adjustable legs to go over the dog crate.
2. Add more storage where ever I can.
3. Cross my fingers that everything fits.

Fabric will be tucked here, there, and everywhere in the house. Yes, I have way too much fabric...but I have plans for it. Lots of my older fabric will be cut into 2.5 inch strips and 5 inch squares - yup, I've got Accuquilt dies for that! My newer fabrics will be kept in fat quarters.

Today I have a couple of errands - need a shower curtain rod for the guest bath, along with a liner and shower curtain, and bath math. And groceries.

We are down to only a few boxes left to unpack. There are a few things I'm missing that are somewhere in boxes within storage units - who knows when we'll find them!!! But we have the necessities. I can cook again! And I have clothes to wear. Important stuff!

I'm hoping to get back to patterning the next section of Bliss by the end of the week.


  1. Looks like you have nice windows and love the flooring. I'd love to see a shot of the house or the floor plan. So exciting.

  2. It is fun to organize a 'space' for our work, isn't it!

  3. I just moved my sewing room to the old living room. No closet so storage was an issue! I found a perfect solution at IKEA. Take a look: A look at my finished new room is in a more recent post. Congrats on the new room and new house!
