    Red face My "cutting" room

    I have just finished posting some pics of my "new" sewing room re-do & because my rooms are small, I use 2 former bedrooms for my quilting. 1 for sewing (earlier post) & 1 for my cutting room which I will now post some pics. I think they are a little dark, so forgive me for that. My DH built me 2 beautiful shelves to display 2 more of my vintage machines & made me a large ironing mat for a cabinet that we purchased so that I still have some storage. You can just see the wicker baskets undernearth the ironing mat. This room is also home to our sofa bed, in case we have company. Wish I had the extra room but we need something for guests to sleep on !!
    Thank you for looking.

    Nice. Someday maybe the wall could come down so it can be an all in one sewing room.

    I thought of doing that but the exercise of having to get up to go to the next room is good for me. I have a bad back & sitting for too long is not good for it, so this forces me to get up. They are right next to each other so it's really not that bad. After working in a not nice space for years, I feel like I died & went to heaven. Our bedroom is huge but taking that over is as they say, out of the question. I am very happy with these rooms.

    You have a great area. I'm sure you are enjoying your new space. I sew in a former small bedroom too. It kinda crowded so I have my cutting table downstairs in what was a family room. Small pieced I can cut ok but with larger fabrics I go downstairs.

    I love the quilt you have hung in your room. I can't wait to have a quilt hung up in my quilting room.
