    My sewing corner :)

    Tucked in the corner of the living room... you can't tell in the picture, but when I sit in the chair I actually bump hubby's chair, so it is a tight space, but it is all mine So excited, I just did the ironing table (http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t210171.html) and put it in place today. There is an outlet right there so it is perfect. Hoping to have time to use it soon.

    Thanks for letting me share

    It looks great. A little space is better than no space. It looks inviting.
    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.

    Small spaces some times are best. If you are like me, I have 2 hobby/ sewing rooms, and they are filled to the rim. Too many hobbies and to much stuff!... I have trouble finding stuff and keeping it neat.
    I think your area looks very neat and organized.
    My Mother never had a sewing room of her own until about a year ago. She is 65 and made almost ALL of our clothes when we were kids. She made us beautiful clothes, I remember her making my Dad and brother double knit/ polyester leisure suits for Easter. Baby doll clothes and Barbie doll clothes that I played with, then my DD, and now our grand-daughter. I have some of them on display on one of our Antique Walls.
    Thanks for sharing your space with us, I think it is wonderful.

    I love your 301. What a beauty in it's own table. And when it's hot you will have lots of cool air. Great space.

    Everything is so neat!!!! My project of the day is to make a tv tray ironing table. I can't decide what fabric to use. Yours looks so tropical! Did you use Insulbrite, batting, old towels or what under the fabric top?

    I started just like this. Sometime (shhh don't tell DH) I miss all the noise from everyone when I quilted in the house, sometimes. I have a question for you though..Why is there plastic over your A/C? ( I was born and raised in Florida, a hard winter to me is 35, which I complain all winter) =)

    Thanks everyone!


    wyte - it's winter here in PA and pretty cold, if we don't cover the AC in the winter time a HORRIBLE wind comes through there and our heating bill is already crazy (and we only keep the heat at 60degrees), so we do whatever we can to keep the bill as low as possible. Even with the plastic that corner is cold... my tushy is always freezing when I sew!

    Such a neat place to sew, and I love your sewing machine. I bought one just like it in 1962 and I still have it!!

    Very nice! All in reach! Your pictures too!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Very cozy & I love your little rocking chair pincushion. I would love to have one, too. I'm sure you will be sewing up a storm in your little piece of heaven on earth. God speed as you stitch.
