My New Sewing Room

When last heard from I was probably helping daughter #1 move out of the apartment we have over our garage..........  It was time for her, hubby and 2 kids to move back to Maryland where there house was waiting for them to move in!  A happy/sad time for everyone but it really was time :)

So, that move meant daughter #2 was ready to start her move into the apartment.  
The unpacking of her bedroom took way too many days since she's kind of a pack rat but when the painters got the place all ready, we took a few days and got her set up....now to wait on living room furniture....which she's hoping comes sooner than later!

NOW...the fun part was I got to move across the hall from my old 12 x 12 room into a 12 x 24 room with a walk in closet!!!  Here are a few pictures of my new and improved sewing area.

My cutting table with pegboard and shelves for pincushions and little goodies with hooks for scissors etc.




I went to IKEA and bought this skinny shelf for some gifts from friends over the years...


I moved my ironing surface and portable small design wall to the area behind my sewing machine which is perfect for baby quilts and small toppers.


My sewing machine is all set up and projects are going on there today.....


Here's 2 BILLY Bookcases from Ikea also with my tv and toys.....I thought I'd put books on the shelves but I have room in the walk in closet next to the shelves where I put all the books.....


And last but not least is the design wall.  I wanted a frame from wall to wall and ceiling to floor but that didn't happen.  For now, I have a full size piece of batting on the wall which will be fine for the time being.....



I have mini's I want to hang by my sewing machine but I want to make a few more and put them up once and not have to keep moving them around.  I'll take a picture of that when it happens....

Love every bit of your room, Peggy. Those quilts you're working on are gorgeous! I have a new room too but I'm still unpacking. So many little goodies. My kids shake their heads but looking at your room, I see it comes with the hobby. ;)
