    ok, I decided I loved seeing your sewing rooms :D so decided you might like to see where I spend my time :lol: It is not fancy or neat or new looking like some of your's (wiping drool) however it is "my space". We live in an old house with a low ceiling basement and my DH made a space for me down there. Just painted cement floors and "ceiling" is reflective board to help with lighting. But I have lots of work areas and I can leave out projects :lol: :wink:. So most of my sewing is contained down there except for my hand sewing. Now another thing .....I answered one of the threads about how many WIP you have going..well.....I might have forgot to list maybe one or two :wink:

    ok will try the other 2 pictures again.
    notice in the one picture that you see the yellow table, look to the right to the other table. I am here to testiy that mighty putty works :!: Years ago I cut the legs off of that table to use for large coffee table in living room so I could work puzzles while DH watches TV. He said you know you can't put those legs back on...did I show him or what :?: :!: :lol:

    another work area

    Very nice space Sharon!!! So organized looking! I love all the cupboards and shelves you have! And one heck of a stash too!!! :D :D
    I think it is really neat to be 'see' where people do their sewing. - and to get ideas. :wink: I'll have to let my hubby know he has shelf making planned in his near future... :D

    Looks great. It's nice to have a space where you can leave things out and not put away constantly. My space I can leave some stuff out, but because it is our family room, I try to keep it somewhat neet but do not have to put the sewing machine or iron away.

    Looks real comfortable Sharon and you have everything you need for all your WIPs. I'm surprised how many I have too. It's scary when you count them up.

    Thank you all for your nice comments. My husband doesn't think it is organized at all. He is such a neat freak. But there just isn't enough hours in the day to be neat and sew :lol: and he is a sweetie and lets me do my thing. All he asks is that I make him a T-shirt quilt out of his old car show shirts and I am working on that now (among other things).

    I really love to see sewing rooms, it gives me so many ideas. My first mistake was suggesting to my husband to turn the basement into a man's room.........big mistake.........I would have had more room. I took over one of the spare bedrooms, but it is in the upstairs......has sloping ceilings, so hard to maneuver without looking like the hunchback from Notre Dame....ha........I have a table like your yellow one (mine is green) maybe i will move it up there. I too love to put puzzles together. My husband and I love to go to auctions, and he picked up a zillion puzzles from this farm house........really old and good.......anyway......I am going to set up a table on our back glassed in room I think......thanks for all of the creative storing ideas........My sewing room is so messy with lots of projects at the same time, plus my computer corner...Great pics......love them.....

    The reflective ceiling is great! It must increase the light a lot. You are really well organized! I started out organized, but then I started sewing! I have to re-organize after ever project. You know how that goes. Little pieces everywhere. And I don't throw them away. Scrap quilts in my future . . .

    Sew and Sew - beware the sun in that glassed-in room - fabric will fade, so you'll need to build in some kind of covering system. Guess how I figured this out . . .
