Sewing Studio is Finished…and I Love it!

So this weekend our son Andrew came back to St. Louis. He was able to sleep in his childhood bedroom one last time on Friday night. By Saturday afternoon, the posters were off the walls (I took them down gently, Andrew, I promise), his furniture and humongous collection of vintage video game systems had been moved to his new room in the basement.

While he got things settled, I got busy painting. Yellow is such a cheery color–it makes me happy just to see it on the walls. And with the big windows, it will be a great place to sew. I will still have lots of my fabric in a closet in the basement–I promised Andrew I’d warn him before bounding into his room for supplies–this is going to work out great.

And now for some pictures. Ironing station–I covered the board to match the room


My embroidery machine. I re-purposed Andrew’s desk. All my supplies fit underneath. I am using the shutter on the right to hide a really big video game system that is staying put. I guess if I get tired of sewing I can play some ms. Pacman, eh?

Here are 2 views of my desk. I still need to hang the bulletin board. See the mirror in the picture on the right–no it’s not to check my smile, it’s so I can watch the TV behind me.

Here are the book shelves–Andrew lent me the TV–thanks, buddy. He knows I can’t live without my HGTV 🙂 The best place is across from my sewing desk-thus the mirror. The old suitcase is great for holding stuff I don’t use often. I wonder what I put in there???


The desk looks so cute with my sewing nick knacks.

I just love this rack for my rulers–it should keep me from buying rulers I already own. I was happy to see when I put them up I had only 3 duplicates–just lucky! I got it at a store going out of business–I think I paid $30. It is perfect!

Tonight (Monday) I got in and did some real work–cutting out pieces for Michelle’s baby quilt. And I was able to watch the season finale of The Good Wife–quite a surprise ending!

Well that’s all for now. Thanks to my wonderful family for enabling my addiction– I mean supporting my hobbies. Love them all!
