I am so excited, I finally have my own sewing room and can get all my sewing/quilting 'stuff' all in one place. After having it stuck everywhere and not knowing what I had or being able to find something when I wanted it, because I couldn't remember where I had stashed it, it is all now in one room. Not the biggest room, but for someone who hasn't had their own space I am thrilled.
Right now everything is just stacked in there everywhere, but I look forward to getting it all organized after we finish moving into our new home. I also have my own genealogy/computer room, so I feel like I am in hog heaven all the way around.
The walls in my sewing area are a dark color and will have to stay that way for a while, and I have no idea of how i want to arrange it for sure at this point, but all that will come in time. Also carpet on the floor, but will manage with that too, it is just so exciting to have a place for it all. The room is only 12 x 12 (a bedroom) which looked big to me until I started filling it up of course.
Just had to share my good news with everyone. I have enjoyed looking at all the photos and reading all the organizational ideas everyone has posted and now I can put some of them into place in my own room as time progresses.
I just recently serged some napkins for my granddaughter's wedding and it was so nice to be able to leave it all right there when I had to stop to fix a meal or something and then go back to it and pick up where I left off, instead of having to put it all away and get it back out again as I had to do previously.
So any ides any of you may have are most welcome. There is nothing on the walls at the present and I have a huge closet (which is already full). I probably won't have room for a lot of decorations, as I want it to be serviceable, but once I get it arranged and sorted out, then will look towards any decorations that can be had and space used. I am one for more practicallity than for looks.
Now to get on with the rest of the moving so I can get busy.
