Years ago, I had a friend named Ruby.
She had a home with a sewing studio in it.
Her husband built it for her.
It had a "L" shaped counter top large
enough to cut out patterns and sew on it.
I can remember walking into her studio and thinking...
I secretly hoped I could have a sewing room like Ruby's.
In 2009, I set up my first sewing room in a newly
emptied bedroom vacated by "college bound" girls ...
My Bill has enhanced it every so often with little (BIG) things
like a magnetic board for patterns and pictures and my design wall...
He's even fixed little tables to help me
with the load of those large quilts that have
hung over my 6 ft. fold up table while I wrestled with them.
Oh...and that sewing machine thingy... last year... (Yes....that WAS BIG)
Wanna walk back with me?
|My first little sewing space in my current room...don't you know I was thrilled to have it!!!|
|That was my brand new Brother Runway model sewing machine I had just gotten for Mother's Day|
|I really loved the simplicity of it...and the fact that I even had it!|
and it then grew to this:
|A beautiful design wall...yep...the one hubby did...|
Oh...and that sewing thingy I mentioned above...
Until finally...I was here.
No complaints. None.
But that man of mine...
Built me a sewing cabinet last weekend.
It holds all my fabric,
my rulers, thread, and has a space for my cutting mat
and storage for my Go Cutter and dyes.
I will be able to iron on a portion of it...
oh, and of course it has that all important
sewing machine space too.
It has enough landscape to sandwich any sized quilt...or
to hold those quilts so I can actually quilt them without
them falling off the sides into the floor almost pulling my
machine needle with them...
Even though my sewing room is still a mess right now,
and my sewing cabinet still needs paint and stain,
and I want to add a few little touches...
I just couldn't wait to
load it all up to see how it would look...
