    Inspired!

    Thank you to everyone who provided inspiration to get my rest in motion! I spent the day on getting areas ready for work in my small workspace/guest bed. This is my Happy place!! I really liked how it came out. Any suggestions? I'm all ears...

    I'm very impressed! You only have to leave for food and bathroom breaks!! Wish I could get my sewing room that neat, but I can't unless I throw out half of everything or buy a new house.

    Wonderful sewing space! Good job getting it organized.

    I really enjoy seeing pics-- gives me some ideas for ways to make my happy place more user friendly.

    You've organized your sewing space very nicely, especially given the size of space you have. It looks very cozy and inviting.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Looking good! The only suggestion I have is, add brackets in the middle of your fabric shelves.

    I see you have your sewing machine on the workbench from Harbor Freight. I have put a big board ironing board on mine and love it. Lots of neat ideas!

    Boy, It looks like you have done a perfect job. It looks like you can just sit and sew and iron, all of the stuff you need to do. So nice.

    ​If you look at the picture of the shelf with the fabric, you can see a bow starting in the center. Fabric is heavy and an extra bracket will make it more secure.

    You must be so pleased to have things so organized. Good job!

    I would recommend taking the labels off the fat quarters in the baskets (first pic?) - if they sit on the fabric too long, they may leave a residue or a mark.

    Also, is the table to the right of your sewing machine (ironing area maybe?) - does that top lift off for some reason? It looks like it has a handle along the edge..... wondering if there is a multi -purpose thing going on here???

    What a cozy and dreamy place to create in. You have a few thousand $ worth of thread there. Lovely to just peruse your little room.

    Yes, that is actually a solid wood changing table my hubby affixed a wooden top to for me to use as an ironing board. I set the cover in the wash before taking the pic. It has 2 drawers plus the entire "top" section for storage. Thanks for noticing!

    How often is that guest bed used? We recently had to make a decision about our huge sofa bed and its history now. If no one uses it on a regular basis, donate it, your sewing room can use that space.

    Your sewing room looks great. I would like to get my hands on your thread. It is the first thing I noticed. And if you get tired of sewing, you have a place to take a nap. Perfect!
