    Nice to see someone else using cork flooring. I have that in my sewing room too. I grew up with cork flooring as we couldn't have carpeting because of allergies in the family. I love it. It seems warmer than wood plank flooring or artifical plank flooring.

    The spool blocks are a pattern by Thimble Blossom called "Spools" http://thimbleblossoms.bigcartel.com...-roll-patterns. I made mine from a kit from Hancock of Paducah when it was on sale. It was the first time I used a kit & really enjoyed it, I had fabric left over.

    Thank you. The cabinets were not custom made, they came from Home Depot & were affordable for the few I needed.

    Good for you! Love the window over your machine. It will give you lots of additional light! How lucky are you that your DD sews with you.

    I wish I had your sewing area. It's so nice, and spacious. Here is a pic of my sewing (corner). I just moved and don't have a lot of space in my new home. To conserve space and money, I bough an IKEA table ($15.00) and drawers ($20.00). Affordable, but not a lot of space. Had to fit cutting, sewing, and ironing all on one table. Yikes.

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Great space to create! And "Girlfriend" your space looks fun too, I do my cutting on the kitchen counter as it's the right height for me.... it's been days since the counter has been cleared for food prep as I'm in the middle of a project.

    I love your wall colour!

    Seeing your space makes me want to empty out my room and redo it completely. The cork flooring must be so very comfortable to stand on. I have painted concrete. I would have to put down a subfloor and it is just now in the budget right now.

    I cut on top on the deep freeze (which is right outside my basement sewing room. It is the perfect height for me.

    I'm interested in how you maintain your floors. I heard they needed lots of maintainance. True? Thanks, Lee
