As promised, I finally am posting photos of my dream sewing studio. We built our dream (retirement) home four years ago. It is a rambler walk-out on a lake in SW Minnesota. It has 2500 square feet on each of its two levels. The lower level is yet unfinished. However, my sewing studio is in lower level. It takes up nearly a third of the entire lower level. The studio is completed, and is about 20 feet by 20 feet square. The room behind the studio is about the same size and is finished, but still needs a home quilting set-up (with a 10 ft. table) for me to be able to consider it done. Hopefully, when I finish school--we can get that so I can quilt my own tops. The photos are of the actual studio facing the lake.

One corner

Lots of supplies and nursing textbooks too!

computer area (with my sewing chair!)

Sewing area (sorry didn't use flash)--have a great little pull out that I can cut and iron at until the top gets to large!

The doors to stash storage are great as a design wall!

Looking into the space-cutting table and big press surface

Library-reading area & new sofa I just got

Sewing space (for a friend!) & nice flat screen

stash storage! (Mostly kits--LOL)

Oh, I'm pea green with envy. I have moved out of my little 11 x 13 storage room up to one of the bedrooms (with a view). Your room looks wonderful.

Awesome space and view!!!! Ah, I miss the snow! Nothin cosy-er than to sit with a nice cup of hot coffee, tea or cocoa, watching the snow fall, and curling up with.... my sewing machine!!!! Yeah!

Thow a cat or two in there, and I'd be in heaven!

Beautiful, you'll so enjoy it!
