My Sewing Room

No that's not my Sewing Room, but I've been riding that big orange mower so much this summer, (oops I mean enjoying myself) I haven't had as much time for blogging. And the fact that I am an extremely slow blogger/typer/picture taker, there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to get everything done. After seeing Amanda's post this morning, I finished up my mowing before the rain so I can show my sewing room.

It's not too neat, but it's hidden up here in the loft over the living room * *maybe these will be the before pictures* * Honestly a little messy up here doesn't bother me and I love my space!

I can't believe I climb up this ladder, but it's not a problem...
That's a big cushion on my chair.. hummmmmmmm

Nine patch in progress hanging on the rail.

My cutting table ( for cutting small pieces), this picture is kind of funny, the cutting space seems to be getting smaller and smaller.

I have 10 of these shelves to hold folded cottons and wools.

Another in progress from Karen, and I do have 2 more blocks completed that aren't pinned up yet, so I'm actually caught up on this one. ; )

I do have a TV up here and more storage, some dolls my Mom made sitting on the bureau.

I do have a beautiful view up here too!
I have 2 sewing stations, one for my Bernina and one for my Featherweight.

I love my featherweights, these are just the best sewing machines ever, I wouldn't trade them for anything!!
Oh shoot my featherweight picture accidently got deleted ; (

  4. WOW! What a great space. LOVE the views, and the light and love the idea of climbing up a ladder. I giggled at the cutting space getting smaller and smaller. That happens to me all the time. Smaller and smaller and smaller. I have been known to move the mat to the floor! I'll get busy today and take some photos of my sewing space.

  6. Love your orange mower -- I want one! ;-)

    Great loft too -- looks like you have lots of fun projects going on. I think I'd fall off that ladder -- especially on the way down!

  7. Hi,

    What a cute sewing area!

    I found your link on crazy mom quilts and have a question. How did you get the little dresser up the ladder into the loft?

  8. Thanks for sharing your sewing space! I should show mine too!

    Happy sewing!
