    My Newest sewing space.

    I have had my space all over the house. My long arm has to be in our bedroom (only room big enough). The rest of my stuff was in our office that I share with my husband. He now works from home and really needs more space so I moved my sewing stuff to our front hall (about 8x10) since my bedroom is close and the dining room closer. I usually use the dining room table for cutting. There is good natural and overhead light in the dining room. Anyway, here are some pictures of my "space". I have my unspoken for fabric in the elfa drawers with plastic liners to try to keep the dog hair out of it. The drawers move easily so I can pull a set over to my sewing desk if I want a small space to press. My sewing desk is on wheels and easily pulls out if I want to use the desk top on the back of it. One white cabinet holds scrapbooking stuff and some supplies. One white cabinet holds my serger, large yardage pieces, templates and rulers, and two boxes with UFOs. The boxes on the top shelf have bindings, project fabrics, and some are even empty waiting for new stuff. The most important picture is of the ceiling fan my hub and I installed today. Lighting has always been a challenge for my space. I am very blind without bright light. I put those bright white light bulbs in the light fixture and with my ott floor lamp and the bendy light on my machine I can actually see. The only things I have left are to make a slip cover for my chair and a small rag rug at the door. We have laminate floors throughout the house because of the dogs so everything moves easily. I managed to bind two baby quilts today too. I really hate to bind quilts.

    LOVE IT! Your desk is gorgeous, and you're so organized

    Oh, the dog hair. It gets everywhere, doesn't it? Gah. I'm constantly asking myself, "how the heck did dog hair get in there?" lol.

    I hate binding too :P the only thing I like about binding is that it means I'm almost done!

    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.

    @4dogs- it is an ott light rip off I bought from Big lots. The Ott brand name are too expensive.

    Very nice! I love finally having my own sewing room. I still do not have all of my stuff in there...in fear of messing it up.

    Very nice room. I LOVE your sewing desk. I like the fact that the sewing machine fits down into the desk. Did you find the desk like that or was it a project??

    Have a blessed day.
