    Seeing as someone wanted to see my stash cupboard, I figured why not post pictures of my whole sewing room... I'm lucky to have a room to myself, we made two of the kids share! lol

    Yeah--your very own bright and sunny sewing space! It is wonderful.

    PS-I like your kitties on the design wall!

    Thanks... I have another one coming shortly that a mate has stored in their garage and they don't want. It's the same style, but rectangular rather than circular. Same leadlight glass front though, I can't wait! :-)

    Marcia... the cats are a Block of the Month I've been doing called Temple Guardians. It's an awesome quilt when finished. I have all of the blocks now, but have only done two. *hangs head in shame* I'm needleturning them, so they're taking a while.

    THAT's what I said! LOL
    They have a nice big room, and bunks, and I bribed them with a wee tv in there for the playstation. :-)
    My sewing room is generally quite tidy, because it's so small. If I let it get out of hand I start losing stuff and it becomes a nightmare.

    You can only just see another one in the window, it's case is in a wardrobe somewhere. They're both old Singers but they still go. :-)

    It is :-) Part of the border is pieced on the ironing board in the first picture.

    It makes a huge difference doesn't it. I used to sew in the dining room, which meant constantly packing things away. Now I can just wander in there when I feel like it and do a little bit, or a lot, it's no hassle.

    Your paper pieced diamond went out very beautiful. I also love your cabinet.
    Not strange that quilters are able to tolk all around the world. Our quilting rooms are more or less containing the same. IŽll have to clean upp a lot to show my room. :D
    Perhaps a new subject: My sewing room

    I have to keep scrolling back to check, how bad is that - I don't remember what's in my own room! LOL The brown, cream, and baby blue block is a BOM from a quilt shop up north. As you can see from my stash, I'm normally into brights and strong colours, this pale combination is a step outside my comfort zone for sure. But I'm liking it.

    Great room! I have a tiny room about 6' x8' which is OK for piecing and cutting but my stash cupboard is out on landing and some WIPS hanging over the bannisters! I don't think I would dare put the kids in together though, they'd never sleep!

    I have things like batting and backing fabrics stacked in our bedroom, that saves on room. And my quilting frame has to be set up on the dining room table, but I can live with that! lol

    Lovely! You have a nice space to work in, and I also love the Temple cats. I just googled them, what a lovely story and quilt to do.

    For anyone else interested:

    Now, I wish I knew how to applique and wish I could afford it!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers for that! :-)
    I signed up for this not long after getting my first siamese cat. The version we're doing is on a gorgeous blue/tealy coloured background. But the story included in each month is about a little kitten, smaller than the rest, who struggles to keep up with his litter mates. His name is Jing-Reet, which is Thai for Cricket. He ends up saving the day, proving inner strength is what counts.
    A couple of weeks ago we took in a Siamese kitten who has a grade 4 heart murmur. She may not have a long life, but she's tearing around the house like a mad thing, eating really well, growing steadily, and getting into mischief. Everything a kitten should be doing, albeit a bit slower than anyone else. She has a home here and will be loved for as long as she lives, whether it's a week, a month, or years. We named her Jing-Reet, or Jing for short. :-)
