    Cleaned & Rearranged My Sewing Room Today! :)

    I worked on my sewing room today, and hubby worked on his basement music studio! Both of our behinds are dragging now, and we're needing a 2nd wind! lol!!

    Don't notice the unfinished wall, nor the 'car' wallpaper border! My youngest son's been moved out 4 years now, and I've still not redone the room! lol!!

    Before I could hardly walk through it, and hubby was calling it 'the repair room', as he'd put (pile) anything needing sewn in there... But since I've just ordered a bunch of flannel from Joann's and have been on here a lot more lately, I had to get it so I'd want to be in there!

    The guitar applique hanging up is what I need to finish, so I can go onto others! Hubby plays the guitar & keyboards, and is in a couple of bands. I was totally tickled when I found the pattern on Pat Sloan's blog site!

    edited: Don't notice my mess of 'stash' either! I keep hoping elves will come in the night and organize it all!

    Doesn't it feel good to get it cleaned up again? I always love the feeling when I do that.

    Haha - one I started about 4 or 5 years ago and forgot I had until I just re-discovered it today! lol!!! I think I want to put another border on it to make it just a bit bigger, then quilt it up!

    Is your design wall (where the guitars are) is that a plastic tablecloth with that flannel stuff backing? If it is, that is a GREAT IDEA.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Yeap, that's a cheapy flannel backed tablecloth from the Dollar General store.

    Here's the link to the guitar wallhanging, in case anyone else would like it!

    It always feels good to get things how you want them to be. I hope you will enjoy being in your room now. Love the guitar quilt in progress.

    It looks like a very cozy space to create in. Enjoy and if those elves show up, let me know and I'll send my address to you to pass it on to them.

    Very nice sewing room! What an interesting place for me to visit! I also have an old treadle machine (minus the machine) and would like to strip the wood desk off and just use the iron stand. What did you top it with? It looks like marble in the photo. I bet it makes a really sturdy table. I would like to use it for my serger.

    i love that hutch. if you don't mind, may i suggest adding a fabric skirt around the table it sits on. also, the wall that is missing sheet rock, you can use white peg board and you have multiple uses from shelving to a designer wall. good job at organizing. happy holidays.

    Cleaning and organizing is not a process I enjoy....but, oh, how nice to have it all put in order! Good work.

    Thank you! Yes, that's a marble top on the tredle stand! A dear older quilter gave it to me, along with some of her old ufos, and the wooden spool thread holder I have hanging on the wall. I had enough wooden spools to fill it from estate auctions, etc.

    Thank you! I hadn't thought of adding a fabric skirt to the folding table! Would make it look much nicer!

    And pegboard would be ideal for that wall! It used to have that bedroom's closet there, but we removed the small coat closet from the other side, to make the living room a bit bigger.... And my icky ex never finished it. Can't do anything permanent with it, except for putting the closet back in, as we're planning on selling this house in a year or two, and will need to make it back into a bedroom for that. Pegboard would make an excellent temp fix until we fix it all correctly again for selling!

    Now if only I'd get my butt in there sewing.... I'm hating working on that checked sashing for the quitar quilt! lol!!!!
