    I finally did some re arranging today. I move some stuff out of the extra bedroom and moved my sewing stuff in. I think I will be much more comfortable than when I had to lug things from this room to the dining room.

    I also went to see my aunt yesterday. Talk about my lucky day! She gave me a ton of fabric - all togehter at least 30 yards, books, and the best a serger! One of the older heavy duty metal ones. I was suprised when the foot pedal was not plastic!! She is very crafty and although she has 10 kids of her own, none are into sewing at all. I totally lucked out with the hobby!

    Here are pictures of my new room - sorry no before pictures - but it was more of an office before, and the things my aunt gave me yesterday.

    I love lighting - so some are taken without flash. I also collect elephants so those are what the little lamps on the desk are.

    Great space! Not only do you have a window (I suffer from window envy), you have a place to take a nap when you get carried away on a sewing bing!

    Everything looks so nice!! I was surprised how well a computer desk works for a sewing desk. Good thinking on that one! But, if I can give a little sadvice???? Best if you put a little curtain over your fabric bookcase so the sun and light from the window doesn"t cause fading. The quilt I made for my hubby's bed , off to the side of a window that got afternoon sun, faded out on just the top corner near the window. So don't take the chance!!

    Congratulations on having your own space. It looks wonderful. I find my guest bed as a great place to begin placing blocks. Enjoy!

    It's so organized! And a whole room for sewing stuff. I am planning on doing the same idea as soon as school is out. I am going to rearrange my office into a real for sure enough sewing room.
    Congratulations!!

    I would be so excited with such a clean room I wouldn't want to leave it ever. Re: the fabric cabinet, I used a cheapo tension rod and a light weight fabric to make curtains for my fabric bins. When you want to look just remove the curtain entirely or throw curtain to side while you are using it. Works great?

    Beatiful room and fabric and I love the Serger, I would go and get me a piece of plywood and that way you could lay in on the bed to put your cutting matt on it , thats what I do, and it works fine for me as a cutting out area.
    Happy sewing
