    From disaster to woman cave/sewing room

    On August 1, of 2011, we had a high wind and rain storm go through our small town, and it snapped the top half off of an evergreen, that was close to our house, landing it on the roof of an addition, cracking the rafters, and making the 2 rooms, office and front room, unusable. We found a contractor that late in the season, to rebuild the roof, and I have finally gotten back into the office and we converted the front room to a woman cave/sewing room.
    This picture is of the evergreen that snapped.Name:  2011-Cell phone pictures-8.1.2011 003.jpg

    This next picture shows the stained glass window in the front room, and the suspended ceiling hanging suspended. lol
    Sorry about that, but my picture was taken before I adjusted my pic size, so no picture, so on to the rest.
    This first picture shows the closet where I have storage units and fabric and the china cabinet holds smaller pieces of fabric, like fat quarters, etc.

    This next pic is where I do my cutting, have the TV, and all the drawers are full of my projects.

    The next one is sewing central, with the blue one being a Bel Aire of my Mom's, also have a kenmore and a bernina, and all machines are used. I made an ironing board that rests between the 2 desks, and is easily used from whatever machine I am using.

    The next one is my easy chair, where I do my hand quilting, also showing my design wall, with some of my DJ blocks and part of a dresden plate quilt.

    And the last one is back to my little closet with storage units and the door coming into the room. Hope you have enjoyed my little tour, because, believe me, I am really enjoying my woman cave/sewing room.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    You have a great room to work in! I love the men's tie quilt.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
