    My happy place...(picture heavy)

    We moved to this house 20 months ago. I posted pics and promised to show the room after a year. I forgot until a new thread was posted this week. I have changed some things and love the space even more. Yes, it is always this clean. I straighted every time I leave. I actually quilted in it all day today.

    The quilt about the cabinet was made by my late aunt. The pie safe was a bd gift from my dh. The plastic storage holds fq, jelly rolls, quilt leftovers and scraps. The treadle belonged to my dh's family and was left to me by my mil.
    The rocker belonged to my dh's grandma and that is where she sat to do her hand quilting. I have special memories in that room and a great space to enjoy what I love...thus, my happy place.

    Wonderful! Fabulous! Good use of Longaberger baskets too! I love that pie safe with the punched panels. Is that an old piece? Are the punched panels original? They look so great!

    Beautiful space.

    No the pie safe is not old. It was a kit. DH put it together and moved all my books and stuff as part of my gift. It looks awesome.
    Happy Quilting.

    WOOHOO!! And will you do me some pretty cross stitch things for the walls too? ~wink and a grin~ I have to admit, and I have never had the patience to do cross stitch, but I sure do love the looks of it!

    I am really liking the ironing board cover!! Such a nice space... each piece in such an efficient layout. The china cabinet for the fabric is perfect.

    Great space! I love the "A Stitch in Time" piece above the vintage machine. Please tell me more about it! Did you design it or is a pattern available?

    WOW!!! Awesome space.

    I'm with you, I have to clean up my studio at the end of every day, too. I cannot come into a mess and start working. Doesn't matter how disheveled it gets during the day while I play, but come when I'm done it gets picked up everytime.

    best,

    My best is the least I can do.

    I really like the "stitch in time" piece. Where did you get it? Is it cross stitched?

    So wonderful and the memories that surround you in love.
    I so wish I had a space such as this. You are blessed.
    Happy quilting.
