    sewing room progress

    After about 6 months of major overhauling on everything from the electrical to tearing the walls off and re-doing them and then releveling the floors....I am actually in my very first sewing room.
    It is definately not done yet...but I am excited about what I do have at this point.
    My machine is presently on folding tables as is my cutting mat....that will change to a seperate cutting table and a sewing table hubby will build to recess my machine in so all is flush. YAY!
    We did get a bench built for my accuquilt cutter which has been in a box - never used yet - since last July. Yay!
    Hubby is presently working on my grandma's sewing cabinet to get my Janome recessed in it. It will set along one of the walls along with Hubby's grandma's treadle machine.
    Of course, the first area hubby finished was a special bed for Riska, one of our wire fox terriers, to lay on and look out over the front yard where all the squirrels play.
    Please ignore all the tubs of stuff...hopefully it will all fit in the cabinets we are going to build.

    It looks like Riska got the best seat in the house. That is going to be one nice room when it is completed.

    WOW. I LOVE it already. I can't wait to see it when its done.. I LOVE the table for the accuquilt go! studio. Maybe that idea will work on the back of my sewing desk, for extra room for sewing quilts.

    I also like your bench for your accuquilt cutter. I will have to think about something like that for mine. Like the machine, if it is set up and out ready to use, I use it more. Congratulations on a beautiful studio!

    After having recently built my first-ever sewing room, I can certainly relate to your joy in the progress to date. You will not regret this investment! It looks great and I'd love to see a pic of one of your WF Terriers on the dog bed at some point - I love those kind of dogs.

    Oh, your room reminds of my "little attic" in our "old house"...I loved it so. On that sloped ceiling, where the side wall is so short-on one side, I made my DH put in shelves the whole length of the room and that was where I put my stash....then had him hang a long length of gas pipe, put hooks on it and it held my templates, rulers, etc., like hangers on a closet rod.....It was my place, I wonder what it is now???????? No I don't want to think about it......
    I have a sewing space now.....part of a finished basement with windows so I am happy here too........but my "little attic" will always hold a special place....

    Your sewing room looks great! I love the area for your doggie. I have a rescue pug and need to put a bench or something for her and it's something on my "to do" list to get my sewing room completely done and organized. Presently I have a pet bed under the window. My sewing room is presently getting organized. Enjoy!
