A glance into my world....my sewing world!

I have been working on a new sewing room since February.  Yes, it has taken that long to finally get it into some order.  I still have a lot of work to do, but I wanted to share what I have done so far.

 First of all, my space is not very big.  It is approx. 10x11.  It is jammed with furniture, but I find that I could even use more!  I am obsessed with storage.  I use a white board to keep track of what I have to work on.  I'm just a list kind of gal.
 My next big project is to make a slip cover for my chair.  It is a thrift store find and not very attractive, yet comfortable.  Does your machine have a knee lift?  What did I ever do without one?
 Yes, that left side wall is my favorite side of the room.  I'm so glad that I get to look at all of my things every single day.  See that chevron bin under my table?  It is big, and I use if for batting scraps.
 I know that there are a lot of you who have this lovely Ikea roller cart.  Mine was the gray one, but my husband spay painted it yellow!  I left the side bars gray.  That little plastic tray that fits so nicely inside....it is also from Ikea.  I have one on all three shelves.
 I can not say enough good things about these lights.  They are from "inspiredLED".  They make it so bright under there and they are NOT expensive.  www.info@inspiredled.com
 I'm fancy, I use crystal and milk glass for some of my goodies.
 This is my newest exciting space.  A closet that is almost completely shelves...20" deep shelves!  I haven't had a chance to get in there and fill them yet, but it will happen.
And last but not least, my antique sewing baskets.  Aren't they fun?  I hope that you enjoyed this tour of my sewing space.  I'd love to see where you work and create your masterpieces.

Wow, Miss Vicki...how neat and tidy is your sewing space. 'Tis a lovely room in which to stitch all those lovelies of yours. Those lights are pretty cool and I'm guessing that closet will be filled in next to no time! Seeing as a I'm a fancy type gal, loving your crystal and milk glass.

Thanks so much for the lovely tour! You have a very beautiful an inspiring sewing room. Love those vintage sewing baskets. You would not want to see my sewing room at the moment...it needs a thorough cleaning right now!
