I searched many thrift shops before I found this treasure to hold my stash. It's part of an old entertainment unit. I'm still moving fabric from the closet in my former sewing/bedroom, folding it and organizing according to color. This is for my larger pieces of fabric to use for borders, binding and backing.
My "works in progress" are stored behind the floral fabric under the bar area. Out of sight, out of mind:)
This new design wall is amazing. Using two foam insulation boards from Home Depot, covering the boards with Warm and Natural batting and bolting it to the wall, this design wall measures 86" by 88". That's the Rotweiller quilt waitinig for an additional side row and borders.
It's a luxury to have floor space to actually measure a quilt top for borders.
This table was in my childhood home. I remember Mom refinishing it years ago. With bed risers added to the legs, it's become my new cutting station. Might have to purchase additional cutting mats.
I love looking out the window when I'm sewing. Luckily, my sewing cabinet fit near the two windows. It's fun to watch the "neighborhood" from my nook.
Books, magazines, and patterns all live on the wall adjacent to the ironing station. The row of binders contain patterns ripped from my older quilt magazines. The shelves are filled with great inspiration for future creations.This is the one area that I've can't decided what to do. The entertainment cabinet weighs a TON. Dear Son said it will remain in the house FOREVER. There is an old TV in the cabinet that I had hoped to use with my laptop to stream movies. The television is so old that it doesn't have the right inputs. I keep thinking we will load it and bring it to a charity shop, but it too weighs a TON. The recliner is Rusty's chair. Yogi from Aunt Polly's Porch takes wonderful naps while Polly sews, but NOT my Rusty. He watches my every move.
The only item on the wall is one of the first pictures that I had in my very first apartment over 30 years ago. The colors and simplicity of Picasso's print has always spoken to me.
Thanks for "visiting" my new sewing space. It will continue to evolve, but I'm truly blessed to have so much space to create.
