    MY new room

    When we first looked at our home our realtor described this little room as the baby room. Well, I knew that wasn't happening so the room became the catch-all space. Items for Goodwill was stashed in it till pick-up day, or Christmas or birthday presents were hidden in the space. In my mind it was too small of a room to do anything with. I sewed at the kitchen table and life went along just fine, year after year.

    Then one day it hit me. I should have my own space, my own room for sewing, and I thought of this little room. I cleaned everything out, moved a table into it and life went on just fine. Then last spring I asked DH to build a sewing table, with drawers and a sewing machine lift. Love it! He built the peg board for my supplies and hung the design wall. We hung baby photos of our boys. He surprised me when he installed not only a TV for a little entertainment but also a blue-ray player. This Christmas he gave me ceiling lights and a few Ott Lights to brighten the space.

    I love my little sewing space!

    You have such a lovely room and even a comfy resting chair. Wow, you have a lot in your "little room" (smile). Great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
