Mad About Patchwork
has been hosting a fabulous series this summer showcasing sewing spaces of Canadian Quilters / Bloggers.
This week I am on the roster. So welcome to my sewing space!
Pam asked us some specific questions about our sewing space - which you can head on over to read, but I am all about pictures here.
I have been in this space for a year now and I am smitten with it. Two big windows means lots of natural light and I have the whole room to myself which is even better!
Cutting, sewing and apparently computing all happen on this sturdy table. I usually pull the ironing board right over so I just swivel in my chair as I am working. Height of laziness. I am not ashamed
My stash lives here - Ikea bookcase and containers! I sort by color. And I asked myself why have I not ever made a rainbow quilt before, it is all laid out for me already! Oh and that is my Oliso Iron. My newish baby. LOVE LOVE LOVE
Larger cuts, batting and fabric scraps live in this great dresser I rescued from a yard sale, the old singer on top was also a yard sale find which my generous quilting friend (and all over perfect friend really) let me have even though she saw it first!
I have a wee closet that is great storage for WiPs, movies, batting etc etc. Movies you ask? I never sew without a movie on. Or maybe some TV series binge watching.
Another Ikea gem is this "kitchen" cart. This is one of my favorite things. It hold all of my notions right where I need them and can follow me around on wheels. Basting supplies live on the bottom, middle holds EPP and odds and sods and on top everything else that I use all the time. LOVE
And of course no tour is complete without the design wall. I had never had one before I moved into this space and it was the first thing that I did. I duct taped panels of foam insulation together, covered them with batting and nailed them to the wall. Awesome. I have some batting droop at the bottom that is mainly because my cat Penny attacked it one day. Sigh.
So that's it. A quick tour of my sewing space. I love this room. It truly is my happy place. Whether I am actually quilting or just fussing around organizing fabric, I am in heaven.
What is your sewing space like? Are you in love, do you long for more? I would love to hear about it. And don't forget to drop in at Mad About Patchwork to check out some more amazing creative spaces!
