    Smile My new quilting room!

    Well, my Great Grandmother moved out (Loooonnnnggg story there!) so I turned her room into my quilting sanctuary!! I'm so stoked to have a space to call my own, to decorate with my own projects and received swaps, and set up to be functional for my quilting needs!! The closet is strictly for quilting/craft storage, and all I need (at the moment) is a sewing table. For now, I have 3 TV tables setup, lol.

    Oh, it's also the guest room, but mostly my quilt room.

    The sewing station/ironing board (which now sits on the old Brother I mentioned here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...a-t215509.html)

    All it needs now is a cute wall hanging. Looks like you have great lighting. Enjoy!

    Looks like your quilt inspector is looking for his/her spot! You'll be able to lay your blocks out on the guest bed and you have a bright and pretty place to quilt. Congratulations!

    Wow..you are blessed to still even have a "Great Grandmother". God bless her! The room looks good!

    If I may ask....... What is that thing hanging above your machine ???? Is that for thread ????? If so, where did you get it ?????
    I wouldn't laugh at a guy that quilts, because your wife seems to find it attractive...

    Enjoy your space, it will be nice to just close the door instead of having to pickup everything when you're in the middle of a project. Won't take long to fill up your closet with lots of to do things. Kitty better check it out while she has a chance. Nice space.

    I actually put up all of my received swap quilts/stuff, and a baby quilt I made, so the room looks more 'homey'. Looks/feels warmer that way too! I also added a box spring to the bed so it sits higher, and put a nicer sheet set on it. I should probably take new pics!

    Yes, it's a thread holder. The top two rows are even smaller to hold bobbins or the smaller spools. Pity it doesn't hold cones though, as I've started using them. It's one of the many odd items I inherited from my grandmother. I got it years ago, and actually used it for keys and stuff until I took up sewing this past August!
