    Sandy's Sewing room Re-do

    Well, I think that I have FINALLY figured out how I want to leave my sewing room set up. Seems like I am always re-doing the layout and over the holidays I tore it apart and reset the furniture. My original post http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...m-t117675.html

    My new layout...and I am pretty satisified with it!

    It is! When we cleared out my parents home to get it ready to sell, I brought my record albums home to my house. 1960's and 70's era. I told my husband that I wanted to be able to play them so he hit Craigslist and ebay for components and now I am back "in the day" complete with those over sized speakers. So now I enjoy my Monkees, disco, Carole King, etc and get a dance or two in to boot! Brings back great memories and takes me back to a simpler time. LOL!! It's fun.

    My 14-year old son wanted a record player for Christmas. Luckily, my mom found her old one and a stack of albums for him. He was on a treasure hunt, looking for "good sounds". He's a big Beatles fan and I'm crazy about The Monkees! Good to see I'm not the only one! I was afraid we wouldn't be able to find speakers for his player, but we got a $5 cord at walmart so that he can listen to it through the little "$20 boom box" we got to listen to iPod at the pool! So he can play cassettes, album (33's only; the 45 speed is broken), cd or iPod!

    LOL, just wanted to share that story! And say hi to another Monkees fan!

    Great Job! And LOVE that quilt on the bed! I'd like to spend an hour or two in that room - not quilting - but looking at everything.

    I love how you have your computer and sewing machine close together. That way you can sew and keep up
    with quilting blogs on -line at same time. I have to get it and go from sewing area to computer then to another
    room for fabric. I wish I had space to combine everything in one room, but alas I don't.

    Thank you for sharing your "new" room. Sat. my husband took out a closet & beginning to build it in for cutting table & storage. My question, How do the curtains work out for you under the counter? My "H" wants me to do that vs. slidding doors. (less work for him)

    Lookin' good gal. You do not even want to look at mine right now. The saddest part of a sewing room is seeing to many dust bunnies. That means it is not being used.

    Actually, that is my television....I do bring my Ipad into the room so that I can check out emails, etc. My room is 13 x 17 btw.

    It is a See & Sew LED lite. I love this! The first time I saw it I had to have it! Keeps me organized and adds more light too.

    I used hook & loop tape by the yard to affix the curtains to the tables. I do sew thru the tape to reinforce it on the fabric. Perhaps your hubby can attach a small cafe rod to your new table which would allow you to have curtain rings for your skirts. Mine sticks pretty well to the metal underside of the table. The white plastic one sticks pretty well but when it gets hot up in that room...the heat causes it to lose the hold. Overall I am happy with the set up.

    thanks everyone, for your nice comments! I always enjoy seeing others' spaces too. We learn from each other and are inspired!

    Thanks! I won it in a guild raffle. It was hand made from a pattern circa 1926. Interesting.....the year my mom was born. That vignette shows a lamp from my grandmas' house. She died when I was 4. I don't remember her. She was my moms mother. The sewing machine and cabinet belonged to my moms sister, one of my favorite aunts. The flower arrangement was a gift I gave my mom while she was in the nursing home. I lost mom just over 2 years ago. so I guess this is my tribute to the important women in my life......all since passed.
