    My sewing room

    Here is where I love to be even though it is a tiny guest bedroom. My stash is in the storage chest by the iron; believe me, it is full. I took a white plastic table cover and made the design wall and my hubby hung it. My next quilt is already displayed...making a birthday gift. Hope you enjoy- I love looking at your sewing rooms!

    What a nice room. I also love the quilt on the day bed. Did you make that one, too?

    Very nice sewing room, you really have made good use of a limited space. I'm going to 'borrow' your design board idea, it really helps to arrange blocks on a design board to get the best arrange for a quilt.

    Smile Love your quilt.

    Thanks for posting your lovely room. It reminds me of mine, also a third bedroom used for sewing. I love to see how others lay their things out and what is where....such as nearby, across the room, etc. Lovely to have 3 windows...mine are high so I miss being able to look outside. DH has promised a new room out of his old shop eventually. Still no windows but will have lots more room and get to pull things out of the other rooms where they are stored. I don't know but I think my stash beats yours! Mine would not fit into that cabinet! lol! thanks again and enjoy your room!
    And I love your quilt on your design wall. Those are my favorite colors too. I have a flannel backed tablecloth hanging over a closet door in another bedroom for my design wall. Will be nice to have that in my "new" sewing room. Actually it will be so nice to have it all together instead of in 3 bedrooms. Sigh! if that day ever comes! DH is trying though.

    Nice sewing room set-up! I am going to add a word of caution to everyone posting pictures of their sewing spaces. With this new thumbnail and enlargements, make sure there is nothing of a personal nature on display. Your room is great but boy, if your car had been outside your window I could have read the license plate.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments. To address the questions:

    I bought the daybed comforter and curtains from JC Penny.
    The wire organizer came from TJ Maxx, a discount store of designer cloting and home goods.
    Thanks for heads up on what can be seen in a picture!!!

    So nice to see what you have done with a small space. Most of us are in the same boat with working in the confines of what is available in your home. No matter is it is an alcove, closet, basement or small bedroom...make it yours!

    Your sewing, ironing and cutting area look so cozy. I have to get up and move to each station as I work. It looks like you can do it all from your chair. Very nice.

    I love your day bed "dressing". Thought you had made them too. Amazing how people can manage the spaces we have!

    Hi Dianne.....I have my sewing room in a small bedroom also....and I had a day bed in there but I decided one afternoon that the day bed was taking way to much valuable space up...so my hubby helped me take it down and we went to Ikea to buy another sewing table for me so that I would be able to cut my fabric better and not have to go to the kitchen table...so now I also have room for my other sewing machine that I had to store in the closet...Iam very content without having the bed in there.....I also purchased an antique armoire for my fabric....so now Iam so happy that I made that decision.....Trish

    I love your room! I must confess I kept going back to the quilt. It is fabulous! Did you do that?

    You have a nice sewing room. Nice wire racks on the wall. You made such good use of the space you have. Did you make the quilt and pillows on the day bed?

    Your sewing room looks very nice and it's all yours (feel the same about mine). Love the quilt on the day bed.

    Great room and use of space. I also have an extra bedroom turned into sewing room. I think the bed needs to go for more sewing stuff !! LOL
