I am so stinking excited to show these pictures. My Mother-In-Law and I unpacked the sewing room on Thursday My Mother started painting it on Friday, and I finished it up yesterday. Can I just say that I LOVE IT!!!!! Here it is, my new sewing room!!
This is Work Central. The previous owners were kind enough to ask if I wanted this huge corner desk and I quickly said yes. Isn't it just perfect. So much space for pinning and so forth. And storage drawers galore. This is a vast, vast, upgrade from my last sewing desk. And I just love the wood floors. I can actually baste my quilts in the same room I sew them!!! Now all I need is a rolley chair to spin around the room in.
Okay, So I thought I had a large stash, now I realize I just had a small storage space for that stash. I told my husband that there is plenty of room to expand the stash now. And even enough shelves to color code it. I want my stash to look just like the Yankee Candle Store. I am so excited!!
And on the other side of the room, oh yes, a mini kitchen. This room was used as a lab by the previous owners. It will now be perfect for popping up popcorn, or making hot chocolate. Just a fun little touch to keep the kiddos happy while I don't have to stop sewing. Oh, and did I mention, More Storage!!!
Here is where I envision a special little something. I have mentioned to my wonderful Father-In-Law, who is such an amazing craftsman, about building me a cutting table that I have my mat built in to. I would have it on wheels so I can just roll it out into the middle of the room and work all the way around it. Ahhh!!! Heaven to not have to go up to the dining room table anymore :)
And last, an ironing station. I scoped out a new ironing board while shopping the other day and put it on my birthday wish list. (Here is hoping, it was $40, pricey for an ironing board but it is sweet!!) Oh and yes, this room happens to be right off my family room. Perfect!!! And the last thing I want to mention that I absolutely love about this sewing room is the color. Don't you just love the purple!!! Thanks Mom for picking it out. Now I just need to make some adorable little wall quilts to match. Maybe I will have to join the next doll quilt swap. Any ideas as to when that is happening???
So that is the new sewing room!!! I just can't wait to get down there and start busting out some projects. I can't believe I haven't sewn for like 2 weeks. Killer!!! Oh, and check back tomorrow where I will reveal something that has been in the works for a little bit and I am SOOOOOOOO very excited about it. I will give you a hint, it is in the 3rd picture :)
