    Here are some pictures of my sewing room aka Peg's Patchwork Parlor.

    My stash closet.2 shelves for fat quarters, 2 shelves for fabrics and 4 rolling carts. 1 for upholstery, 1 for yarn, 1 for childrens fabrics and 1 always at the ready for a quilting retreat.

    I picked the set up at a yard sale and then repainted and put new seats on them.

    I have always wanted a window seat. I probably won't ever have a real one so I use this bench to curl up and read sometimes.

    I am laughing because I amjust starting out and I have 1 rolling cart! I guess it just takes time to build up a stash.

    Oh, I feel so less guilty about my stash!! I look at my 6 large green/gray totes and feel badly...well, sometimes I feel badly! When I need to start a new project I am glad I have such a nice stash. My problem (and I'll bet yours too) is that no matter how much stash I have, I always have to fill in the gaps for a new project.
    Ah, but you have done many of us a great service showing these photos!! Less guilt about our own stash, but for me, envy for your organizational skills!!

    Me too!

    I cleaned out & rearranged my "sewing" room - and right now it consists of a small desk (aka cutting table), my sewing cabinet, the ironing board, and the storage cart. Lots of room for growth!

    LOVE the Parlor! Absolutely the coolest.

    I don't know how you all do it with the carts... all my wide carts *8* of them - got so filled with fabrics that they wouldn't roll, sagged, couldn't get the drawers open or shut... cloth too heavy for the wide plastic carts! I do have 3 small carts I use for fusibles, stabilizers, zippers, etc. But no more big carts! lol..

    Oh wow! So impressed. Wish some of those organizational skills that you possess would somehow travel over cyberspace and take over my body for a few days. Sure could use the help... Looks great and I'm sure you enjoy it!
