Welcome and Enjoy! This is my Sewing Room which is 1/2 Garage converted into a room just for me years ago by my dear husband that never had a chance to actually see it materialize. By the time he had finished the basic conversion following the project came our youngest blessing, a son and as we were limited on space since there were 3 children before him, the room was then turned into a bedroom for our 2 oldest boys.
Here it is 33 years later and I'm finally getting it to look exactly the way I had hoped! When the children grew up and I had retired I then white washed the old dark paneling, installed a ceiling fan and track lighting, electrical outlets and a carpet remnant. This room has had plenty of makeovers and this is the final one! I keep fabrics stored in the glass curio which my oldest son gave me years ago and the rest of my fabrics and laces are stored in various chests of drawers and the 2 trunks that I have had for years and baskets. In one area I have my sewing machine and on another craft table with a quilt on top of it is my newest toy, a needle felting machine which I'm planning on perfecting the art of! I have all my threads on thread spool racks which I found in the sale shelf of JoAnns Fabrics one day for next to nothing as they were missing a few pegs. Lucky me! On the back of the door I hung a shoe storage bag for more "this & that" as in Fat quarters and such. I have been a collector of old Sewing items for years and everything is now out and on display. My cute Sewing machine lamp above my sewing machine needed a shade so I found a plain fabric one at Target for about $5.00 and glued a tape measure around the edges and then glued everything I could find that was sewing related on it. I just need to age it a little but time will probably take care of that. I think I have covered every bit of wall space available. This blog party was exactly the incentive I needed as before I could barely walk through it as every catch all was put in there until a later date, well finally that has arrived. Enjoy your visit to my little creative world, though not what I would consider magazine worthy I love it anyway as I put it together with bits and pieces of the past and present and and it reflects a bit of me. I hope everyone has had as much fun as I have in preparing for this party. Blessings to all of you and Many Blessings to Karen and a big Thank You for putting this most fun event. Happy Blogging! XOXO
