    My corner of the world

    This is my quilting kingdom as my DH calls it, it is in our bonus room and I have about 1/3 of it I do have to share with our computer and my grandson's play area for video games but I love the part I have. It works well for me and I can walk away when I am done.

    It looks wonderful! Any spot that you can leave all your stuff out in and come back to later is great.

    What a very nice place to share. I have to say I like your wooden sewing basket!

    Love your sewing area. Where did you get the white table your machine is setting on? It looks like there is a drop down for your machine. I would love to find one.

    You know small might be the best and having to share space could be the key to keeping it clean and organized......It could be the best.

    Thanks everyone for you nice words, the wooden sewing basket was from an antique store and given to me by my daughter. The table for the machine is one that I found on the internet and I am sorry I do not remember the name, but if you search for computer tables with drop down area you should be able to find it (the little shelf is adjustable to 3 positions) . The cabinet hold my MIL's old Singer I think it is from the early 60's, still sews great and I do use it when I need an extra machine.

    You have a very pretty and comfortable-looking space to call yours! It just looks so comfy and inviting! I know you enjoy it tremendously!

    BTW - I have one of those units with the 10 colored drawers. I like it, but the drawers are so aggravating; they do not move smoothly. Do you have that problem with yours? Wish I knew how to solve that little problem!

    Yes they seem to get off the track really easily, I don't have answer either so I just put them back on track when they do that.

    I have a sewing chest like the one in the 3rd picture. Congrats on you sewing corner. I think you have just about everything. I know you are one happy lady like me.
    I love to encourage people to feel good about themselves. You are beautiful to God and you are beautiful to me. You were put here for a purpose and you never know how much you have touched someone elses life.

    What an inviting room. Looks like you mean business. Love the sign - it also shows the other users whose room it really is.
