A Glimpse...

This is my sewing space. I haven't had this room for more than just a few months. It started out as a nursery for Ruger, but since then we've had to rearrange our sleeping arrangements. There's another room in our house that was planned to be my room, but it's still under construction and I simply couldn't wait any longer. I've been sewing in a tiny little corner in our basement and things were just getting out of control, so I took our spare bedroom and made it my own. It's not done yet, there's a lot that I'd like to add to it, but I'm not complaining it's really been the greatest thing for me and my family.
This is the spot where I keep all of my important things, like patterns, ribbons, fabrics for bag orders and such. The flowers were made by Ruger. He gave them to me for Mother's Day and the wrought-iron purse was given to me for my birthday from Roni.

My kids like to always be close to me. So we put a love seat and small TV in there so they would feel welcome to hang out with me while I sewed.
I love this table! We found it at a yard sale for $25. It's Crate and Barrell...can't beat that!
This is the closet that hides everything else. Like bags and fabrics and such. Our home was built in 1928 and it still has many of the original doorknobs on it. You can't find them like this in stores, trust me I've looked. They have similar ones, but they're not like these. So that's my room. It's not much, but it's mine and that's what I love. There's enough room for my friends to hang out a sew all night long...we really do that! We stack the table with chocolate and soda, line up our machines, spread out, and talk the night away. I highly recommend doing this regularly, it's a great stress reliever.

I love your sewing space! I can just imagine how fun and relaxing it is to be in there, and I love that there is a love seat and tv for Ruger and Sawyer to hang out with you while you sew!
