    Cool I'm finally 'Coming out of the closet'

    OR the Sewing room LOL! I'm going to show you My Quilt/Sewing space's. I have 3 only because my house is very old 1932 and very little rooms. One is for the cutting table/ironing/fabric in all the pocible places I can find!!LOL. My hall thats only about 48inchs wide but has the window I love, I sew there. The other room has my quilt frame and twin bed for the gran kids. My quilt frames torn down, I'm lowering it. And before you get the idea it looks this clean All the time just forget IT!!!! No Way!!!

    What a pretty sewing space you have. I'm sure it feels like "your world". Your refuge. The windows make it look very cheerful.

    The area where your sewing machine is the cute FW is like my Grandmother had; just a little space that was her own. No one was really allowed in there; cause there was no room. But I would sneek in just to snoop on her sewing machine to see what she was making. I know pocess her summer quilts. Two cotton fabrics not batting. Coming apart but I just love them.

    Like all your rooms and the yellow. I see that you have some model planes hang from one of the rooms. My husband hobby is building model planes. He has them hanging from his room and in the garage. I bet we are the only people that have planes hanging in the garage.

    Your quilting space is very nice and oh so clean. I love how you have your sewing machine set up in front of the window. Someday I hope to have a sewing space I don't have to share.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Really super use of small spaces. Love the windows and what you have done with your room. Enjoy sewing for hours there!

    You can't be bored with being in one room all the time. You've got everything so handy. It's great.

    It looks like you're making good use of all your spaces! I love your mosaic of rulers on the wall.

    WOOHOO! This post put me over the top! I'm not "senior" anymore, thank goodness... (I'm only fifty-ahem) So glad to be "Super" now.

    Are you kidding???? I'd kill for that much space!!! Our house (at least the front half) is over 150 yrs. old. We have a total of 1500 sq. ft. I have an 8' x 10' room that is my sewing space as well as guest room! In there I have a futon, dressing table, chest of drawers, cutting table, (small) sewing machine table as well as basket, bins and 2 other sewing machines and assorted other things! Oh, for space! My dream.

    Very nice! Like that you have your machine in front of a window. I do too, and like it. Noticed your jean pockets on the wall as places to put things, good idea.
    Live and let live!
