    I have been meaning to post a picture of my sewing spaces for your girls to see. I know I have enjoyed seeing where you all sew your pretties that you show and tell. So, this morning I straightened up and took these to show ya.

    Here is the sewing table space in another spare room.

    I got rid of twin beds from this room and gave them to my sister. I have another guest room so I figured that this is a better use of space, right? But now it is being invaded already by hubby. Now what?? Buy another house? Dang it! LOL!

    Help the man things are coming in here too!

    It is all so nice and neat and orderly, nothing like mine :( Of course mine is in the basement and I just don't let anyone go down there. Love your green window topper. ... not to mention the Gracie II :wink:

    What a nice area you have. Mine wouldn't look that neat if I spent all day straightening it up!

    Red You are soooo lucky to have the space to have all your sewing paraphenalia together, mine is spread about as I only have a little alcove in the kitchen, but I am not complaining, I have a lovely view from the window lol!! Is it always so nice and tidy?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I'm glad you clarified you cleaned up- no one works that neat.

    Now, let's see you "in process"- before and after pics. :)

    P.S. Maybe hubby wants to spend time with you, he's not invading, he's bonding.

    You have a very nice sewing space. I have a treadmill in my space too, I use it as a quilt hanger. Currently it has about 8 quilts on it just waiting for the quilting part!!!

    Wow what a neat room! My sewing room has never been that neat! :(
    I would send picture, but will take 1 week to clean! Maybe I'll get motivated now! Thanks

    No cat fur? No thread on the floor? Are you sure it's a sewing room?

    Oh come on now girls! Of course it gets messy! If you look it is a small room. I am a neatnic though and clean it up after each project. Not so much because I want to as I have to. If something gets moved five steps from where it was I can't find it. LOL!

    I don't mind hubby using the room for his treadmill. But, he uses it well before I am awake, so it isn't that he wants to be cozy. He was recently diagnosed with type II diabetes and had to exercise more, so that is the only place for it. That is unless we get rid of the only other spare bedroom! Nope too much company comes here to do that!

    I used to have to use the kitchen table too. That was not fun having to clean up every night even if I was going to sew the next day. Believe me, I enjoy having my own room for theses things!

    ps) My cat sampson died two years ago. He was 17 years old.

    Thank You Thank You Thank You to you all for enjoying my pics.

    Love your sewing room. And remember, you never need to tidy up before inviting us over. We are used to clutter and loose threads. Sorry about your cat. Even if it was two years ago I am sure you still miss him.

    Terri .... Why I would lov to come over there if you have gotten rid of that lizzard and whatever that wierd goul was outside at night! :twisted:

    Reneebobby ... Thanks that is my sewing apron. LoL! It was really fun to make, but I love to sew on bias trim. I know, twisted thinking, but, you see I love the "fingerwork" as a gal once called it in North Carolina. It is quiet and homey to sit and stitch.

    Ok ok that fabric stash is in the double door closet and in another bedroom's closet. It is somewhat organized, but I need some shelving or plastic drawers for it. I still sew clothing and home deco, so it is mounting faster than I can get to it. LoL! Please don't ask me to show it until I get it a little more organized, ok? Thanks ....

    The little oak chest is full of patterns ... That is all patterns. Every kind. I love patterns. Old and new.

    The drawers under the quilting table have finished tops, threads, bobbins embelishments, needles and the like in them. All quilting stuff.

    k3n ... Ummm I think they would end up on the floor or draped back over the table. He wouldn't let me get away with that for sure! Good thinking though.

    gcathie ... when I get it a little more organized I will show it. I promise. It is in the closets. LoL!

    Thank God there is one person on the board like me! I get all nervous and edgey in a room that is a wreck. Thanks marcia! I would perfer to spread out into a larger room, but, I am just happy I have my own space to sew in.
