Where It's At So Far

My sewing room is partially put together but I have move my things into it. The closet storage unit has gotten a couple of scrapbook storage cubes on top of it. Things are not fully organized as yet but here is a peek.
I've moved my books out of my yarn storage cabinet. These may be moved once Greg gets my wall cabinets installed. Right now the drawers in this cabinet have some of my stitching stuff.
My quilting and sewing WIPs are also all in their own little storage box with the fabric and pattern. I am afraid that at some point I wouldn't be able to put my hands on the pattern or the fabric would get cut into for something else.
Here is the sewing area so far. Greg is going to install 2 wall cabinets with some shelves in between in the next few weeks. As you can see, I still have some cleaning and organizing to do.
My big holiday surprise is that Greg bought me a tv for this room. I love it!
Underneath the tv is my cutting table with fabric storage. I think I'm going to get some pretty scrapbook paper to go behind the glass. I'm also planning on keeping my ball winder and swift out so I can use it anytime. It's a pain to keep putting it up and taking it down when I need it. The cutting table is a good height for me and my back isn't hurting when I cut fabric anymore.
It's a small room and it's packed but I love it! I still need to get curtains for the window and some decorations. The curtains will hopefully come soon but the decorations will be something that I'll acquire slowly. I do have a couple of things that I've gotten but the spending of $$$ will be slowing down significantly. Greg did get me a stitching and knitting chair for my birthday that is later in the month and that should be here in a couple of weeks. It would have been here by now but I didn't want to pay $50 delivery for something we could put in our van and bring the 3 miles home.

Greg said this room is going to be like a vortex. I'm going to go into it and never come out! He just might be right!

Maria said...

So that's what a cutting table is supposed to look like. And that's not a tv. That's a TEEVEEEE!!! Wow! Enjoy every single minute in it!

Dee said...

Very nice. I'd love to have a room dedicated to my stitching, but I made a deal that STEVE could have a whole room as his office if I could have a laptop.

So, I work in the kitchen. LOL Well, the good side is it's close to the fridge and the teapot.

It's really looking great!!! I love your cutting table. I need to do something along those lines because it kills my back to stand there, all hunched over, cutting my fabric.

Deb said...

Oh Jackie - your room is coming together wonderfully! I store my quilt projects in pizza boxes, but I like how you have yours stored so maybe I'll have to change. I label mine, but still can't see the contents. And what a great man your husband is - a TV for your room. It doesn't get any better than that!!

Vicki said...

You really did a nice job on your room. I sew on my dining room table so I am jealous!

Feisty Irish Wench said...

YAY for the wife-cave!! Ya know, I'm simply jealous. S'ok though because one day I'll have a studio of my own. Just gotta finish raising the mini-humans into grown humans first.

Tammy said...

Wow Jackie, it is just gorgeous what you've done. Love the organization and the cutting table is beautiful - love the storage underneath it. You will love it and spend a lot of quality time in it for sure. Congratulations!!

Can you fix my room next? Your room looks like heaven. No we didn't get any flurries :(

Suzanne said...

Ooooh, I am so jealous! Your cutting table is just what I would choose if I could fit it into my craft room. I just want to go and redecorate mine now.

Lissa Jane said...

Oh I love what you are doing for your sewing room *sigh* I haven't got a sewing room, more of a sewing house as I have my crap/treasures spread from front to back door!

take care

Lissa

This is looking really great! I especially like the L-shaped arrangement for your sewing machine. And a flat-screen on-the-wall TV? You've got it MADE, girlfriend! Continue enjoying the process.
