    My Craft-Sewing room

    This is a basement area and my little piece of Heaven. I am new to quilting but have always loved to sew and craft. I recently purchased the Grace quilting frame but haven't had a chance to use her yet.
    The peg board was an idea my son David had. We spray painted a primer onto the slick surface, then
    he drew the quilt from a stencil he cut out for me. I hand painted the quilt, but it isn't quite finished yet. A project for after Christmas.

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Beautiful! I love white furniture in a sewing room. It look so fresh and clean. How wonderful to have your son be a part of making this room perfect for you.
    Got fabric?

    A little piece of heaven is right. Great sewing room and I love your stenciled quilt. The only problem I can see is not wanting to hang things on top of it, maybe your clear rulers can hang there?

    LOVE IT! The pegboard quilt is just creative, you guys are talented! Also loved the idea of how the laptop was set up I need to do something like myself so that Idont keep going back and forth from the dining room to the sewing room to look at what I'm doing. That's why I'm getting an ipad later on!

    Your creative space is great. I am sure in such a space you'll be able to turn out gorgeous quilts!!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    What a great space. Is that a Bernina 1530 or 1630 I see? I have a 1530 that I love. I love the painted peg board. Very clever. Have fun.

    I felt the same way, not wanting to hang things over top of the painting. Actually all the rulers are hanging on the gray part off the quilt so it doesn't distract from the quilt too much. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks to everyone for your nice comments. My Bernina is the 1630 I've had for almost 18 years and it still sews perfectly. I also recently got the Janome 300E which sits to my left and I'm enjoying it also.

    Love it, especially the pegboard. I think I will have to figure out how to paint mine!
