    Sewing room FINISHED!!

    Now I just need to figure out what/how to tackle the fabric room.

    Here is a link to my previous post (if interested) when I started
    on my mission to organize my sewing room and to MAKE my new
    desk work for me in there.

    Well I am HAPPY to finally have that part of the mission completed.

    Here are the pictures I may have to make two posts to get all the
    pictures.


    The desk BARELY fits in the room.

    These drawers are on the left as your going into my sewing room.

    I LOVE using Command Hooks because they allow me to organize
    MANY of my tools and gadgets, as well as ALL the embroidery hoops
    for both my machines.

    I have my netbook setup so that I can keep the lid closed and use a
    larger monitor. Sure is going to be helpful when looking at the details
    for embroidery designs.

    I am going to use this area as a cutting center, and if/when I need
    to use my Janome machine or a serger I can set it up on top and go.

    it was a lot of hard work and long days but I am glad it is finally
    finished.

    At least this room, NOW it's time to move into the fabric room.
    Yes I have two rooms.

    Some of you may have seen a cartoon about "sending my daughter
    to college so I can have her room to store more fabric".

    Well that was me LOL.

    That looks great! I dream of the day when I have an entire room for my sewing/crafting! I really like how you hung the embroidery hoops.

    Your desk look similar to the one I have. I love it, makes it easy to move from machine to machine and I have a small ironing mat on it as well so I have an area to press blocks as I go. Enjoy. I have two sewing rooms as well. I took over both of my kids rooms when they got married.

    Great looking space. I too have a new large sewing room. Everything fits into it. I have kitchen upper and lower cabinets with 90" countertop.

    Great job louise! Wow that's must have been painstaking on your back but the rewards are great! After looking at your progress I'm inspired to do something with my own but not right now! Have fun in there! And a fabric room too? Wow!

    Wow, great job. Absolutely love that desk. So glad you could make it fit. I also have 2 rooms - my 2 daughters former bedrooms. I sew in one & cut & iron in the other. A lot of walking back & forth but that's good. Too much time sitting is not good for me as I have a bad back.

    Wonderful new sewing room. What are Command hooks? I really like that you hoops are hanging where you can just grab one and use it. I'm about to reorganize my sewing rooms, and you've given me lots of ideas!

    OH my goodness, how lucky you are, I'm sure you will great creativity in that room. We have just decided that having downsized and only having three bedrooms, one only very small that we can put up those friends we need to, and want in the second bedroom.After years of entertaining and welcoming visitors I have agreed to give the smallest room to me as a sewing room. I get up each morning and look in at it ,see the sun shining in and start my day happy.I will need to do my 'big ' projects on the dining room table, still this room will house my fabrics, my featherweights and my equipment. My lovely son said '' good for you Mum' looks great! Who wouldn't be happy.
