Today I have been working on adding some special touches to my sewing room. I removed everything from the room that didn't belong in a sewing room. I have been slowly taking over this area and have just about claimed it for my own sewing room. The only thing left is my daughter's piano which will be moved to her home in the spring or summer, hopefully. I would like for this space to reflect the things I like, to be organized, yet cozy.
These are some pictures of things I have been working on this morning.
This cork board and sunflower garland are hanging over the sewing machine. I love sunflowers! I have been taping up pictures of projects on that wall so now I can pin them to the cork board.
I can never keep up with the time when I'm sewing, so I placed this clock where I can see it easily. I need to leave home in the mornings for work by 8:00 and nearly every day I try to "sew just one more little bit" and end up being rushed, so maybe this will help me.
This soft comfy seat cushion and rug will making sewing more cozy. The rug will help keep the foot pedal from sliding across the floor and will also keep my feet warmer. This an old chair with wooden slats for the seat, so the cushion will be nice.
This shelf unit will help me get organized.
This is for hanging finished pocketbooks.
This is my favorite quilt hung on the wall with another little sunflower garland draped across it.
My husband gave me this 2 or 3 years ago. The baskets contain all kinds of sewing items. I plan to go through them and organize them this week to make better use of this space.
This a little side table and shelf beside the sewing machine.
I'm off to spend the afternoon sewing in this cozy little nook!
