    My new quilting space...

    I recently relocated my quilting space from the small front living room (which I had to share with the roommate), to the large great room upstairs. The space is so much nicer, but I still feel like I need more room, lol. Plus, I would love to have walls and a door... The gate works to keep the dog and children out, but sometimes I just want to lock myself in and ignore the world...

    First Pic: The love seat and large tv are here due to there be no where else for them to go. My fabric stash is in the black cabinet and the bins up top hold my organized scraps.

    Second Pic: My computer desk, embroidery machine and supplies. I will be getting a larger desk soon... I am now a full time online student and just don't have enough space on this one.

    Third Pic: My sewing desk... I LOVE Ikea, lol. The rolling bins hold all of my precuts, kits, and scraps that have been cut into certain sizes. The closet stays closed because it is so messy, but have a hanging organizer that holds my current and completed projects.

    It is not normally this clean in here... Decided to go ahead and take pics after I spent Saturday afternoon cleaning it up, lol.

    Nice area, I love that black desk.

    Is the small white gate to keep out the roommate?.........LOL

    Maybe somehow you can rig a design wall to hang on the front of the big TV. Might work?!?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    How do you like the ikea desk? Is it pretty sturdy? You could also hang a flannel backed tablecloth over your closet doors for a design wall. Enjoy your space, looks great.
