Default My Sewing-Guest-Happy Place

Listen closely and you, too, can hear my sewing room singing Dianne Warwick's song, with a twist of its own:

I know I'll never Look this way again, / so I keep photo-in' on before the good is gone....

fourth corner with closet and a favorite poster of a girl sewing


I'll post close-ups in the next post, in case they won't show up here.

I store most fabric in a dresser drawer this way.

two more drawers with color "files"

and a 4th one (not photographed) that houses assorted home dec/apparel/craft fabric and accesssories

some Art Bins with WIPs (Works in Progress) plus some oddball stuff

I have yet to hang my design wall, but so far it works just propped against the wall.

My favorite toy Janome Horizon 8200

I used turquoise scrapbook paper, black and white ribbon, and black and white labels to set up a scrap system that works for me.

Attachment 561814
This painting inspired the colors of my sewing room. My grandmother used to sing "His Eye is on the Sparrow" all the time when I was a girl. She was also the grandma who played dolls with me, made doll quilts, and let me choose whatever dolls I wanted to keep when she was in the nursing home. I think of her often when I'm sewing.

Attachment 561815

My ironing table sits at the same level as my sewing machine, so all I do is swivel back and forth to build blocks.
I do have to get up for cutting large pieces at the cutting table, but that's good. I need to stretch.

Attachment 561816

My machine sits in front of the window, so I get a bird's eye view of the street and I can eavesdrop on the neighbors down there. I'm not nosy, just ....um...observant. That's it. Observant!

True confession--the adjacent bedroom contains a dresser with a bit of yardage and stuff that I haven't decided what to do with it. It won't get to come back into the Happy Place until it's been properly vetted.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of where I love to let the world go by.

The Singer 15-91 in the cabinet at the foot of the bed is named Kathryn, for the grandmother who inspired me to sew.

Thanks. I don't understand why the pictures in the latter posts come up saying "attachment" when the preview showed the pictures before I published?

I love your lampshade. Looks like you made it from selvages. What a great idea!

That's a great looking sewing room. No wonder it is your happy place. I like how you labeled your boxes for scraps. That's a fantastic looking sewing machine!
