    The truth!

    I love all the views and ideas posted about our sewing areas, studios and kitchen tables but really now
    my question to everyone is.....

    are you brave enough to post a pic' of what your sewing space looks like when you are actually sewing in it?

    So many of these rooms are so picture perfect. I want to see how you actually use your space. So much more fun than 'all put away'.

    here's mine: a room in working order!

    Ok, I am brave enough.....but it is not working . will try again later
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Dear Lori S, I've been trying for 3 days to put pics on with no luck. And I've put some on before, go figure!

    Ok, these all look better than mine! No way am I posting any pics of my room! It's so bad, my paths are disappearing! Clean up is coming- look out clutter!

    I'm sure the naughty sewing elf comes into my sewing room when I'm not looking and drags everything out that she knows I've thought about in the last week. Then, to really keep me on my toes, she mixes everything together then scatters it all over the room. I personally would never make such a mess as this.

    I hope I'm doing this right and it is in the correct thread. Here is my somewhat organized work space.
    Also hope pictures aren't too big.

    I hate [yes, feeling that strong] this recent house I bought and will sell and move after the first of the year. So I'm not organizing this house much. This is my sewing space for the moment [the iron is on the kitchen counter]

    And I had to move a bed to put up the quilting frame ... but to have enough room to store the bed, had to remove the bedroom door

    All of the fabric and other machines are in the basement, which is dry... thankfully.

    This is the view from the door. Currently I am working on a QAYG Christmas quilt. I am hoping to re-organize over Christmas break to make room for my new machine so that I can start using it.

    I love seeing these pictures ... but, my room has gone through a major change and really looks pretty bare - now the longarm area is another thing ...

    I was hoping to see one that looks as bad as mine, but not yet. I think I will wait until tomorrow!
