    My little bit of Heaven

    Ok maybe I am exaggerating a little bit but I think this set up works for me for now. I am in a little nook where the breakfast area would go. So my sewing machine is facing the family room and I can watch the TV. ( I watch way too much ) then on the other side of the 1/2 wall is where I have a 6ft table that I cut on, and when I don't have the ironing board up where it is now I can also iron on a corner of the table. My very little stash is on shelves in my laundry room. Out of the way.

    Looks like a nice place to sew and your thimble collection is impressive.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    I started my thimble collection when I was a teen. I use to take sewing classes where we made our own patterns. Of course 30 years later have totally forgotten how to do that. Now I pick them up when we travel. Some have broken along the way but will just have to go back and buy more. LOL

    I like the way you have everything set-up within reach.... I also like the block that you are working on, that is sitting on top of your ironing board. Thank you for sharing :-)

    That is a wall hanging kit that my husband bought me last summer to work on while we were living in our 5th wheel. Never got around to it. I have not been able to buy any new fabric for other project I wanted to do so I decided to get that out and work on it. Thanks for looking. Beth

    I love the way you set up a workspace and that it is so close to the living area where you can still be part of the house happenings. The lampshade is wow and the thimble collection wonderful touch. Wish you very many, very happy hours of sewing and creating master pieces.

    The machine is a Janome 6500 that my dh bought me for my b day a couple of years ago. We bought the floor model and the table came with it. You can buy the table separatly, but that is what it is. I absolutly love it, the only problem is that i seem to have to clean the bobbin area constantly or the threads get all tangled up. Thanks for looking. I am glad I was able to share my space with all you guys. Beth

    Oh, I wish my sewing space looked as good as yours. Mine is everywhere it seems. I have a cousin in Alaska that collects thimbles so always look for new ones for her. Have a great week.

    we who sew make our space where ever there is an opening, when we travel in the RV I have to be very space wise. have a fold up table and chair, all fabric in plastic see through boxes , bbut that machine goes with me everywhere. ther are dead times that I just can't sit doing nothing so out comes either the cutting board or the sewing machine. TV is just a noise maker that I could do with out, but hubby likes it running full time.. enjoy your space. My at home work space is OK have to share the room with DH computer work space..(()
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I too like the iron board block, great colors. I would never get any sewing done, too busy watching tv. Little piece of heaven is right.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    You have quite the place for sewing/quilting. Small apaces don't have to be cramped. Good for you.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
