    So as promised, I have a bunch of photos of my looooong awaited sewing room!! So I figured I would have a little sewing room warming party with you all and introduce you to my brand new sewing room!!! I have waited many many many years for this room to come and I'm soooo excited to FINALLY have it!!!
    Let's see this sewing room took one divorce, one major car accident involving a dump truck, a long drawn out university study to get my business degree and a good permanent job with the provincial government.. This all in a 10 year span!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    So without further ado... welcome to my humble little sewing studio!!!

    please be patient with me as I counted 30 photos I want to share here, so I want to add little notes as I go to each photo!!!

    So come on in and have a little looksie around!!! :)

    Cheers
    Andrea

    My hope chest if filled with batting. On top are some of my cushions I made and a trapunto runner

    It didn't disappoint! Congrats on your new creative space, it's well deserved. I appreciate you taking the time to give me a look.

    Those are just the most adorable trinket/pin boxes.

    Now if we don't hear from you on the board, we know where you are!!!
