As promised, here is a glance into the space I work in. It's not decorated, but it's clean and functional. (Finally.) I share this space with Matt and our food storage, but it kind of looks like I am overtaking the place. I think I am unintentionally pushing him out with my stuff. Matt likes to do school work and occasional electrical engineering stuff in here too, and he has a ton of computer thing-a-ma-jigs that I "organized" for him.
Enjoy this little peek into my work space!
Matt built this book case when we moved into the home. All the books are double packed, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. We used to have all the shelves filled with only his books. Now most are hiding under the bed or are tucked away in odd places. He loves to read. Going on 4 years, this book case is still not completed. :)
Part of the uncompleted case, which holds my Necchi and irons.
My sewing spot. I made the stained glass window.
My absolute favorite piece of furniture in this room. Each shelf holds up to 600 lbs! Matt was certain I was going to hate how it would look in our home, but I knew I had to have it, especially at the steeply discounted price Lowe's Home Improvement was offering. I haven't complained about it once! I just love it! I have future plans for this piece but not until we move. Yes, that is a city limit sign that I stole from the kids in our neighborhood who stole it from the town. (I didn't initiate the first offense fyi, and I highly doubt Garner [Go Scotty!] wants a vandalized sign back.)
This photo is for my friend, Liza Jane, who is an incredible seamstress. I think she would goo goo gaga all over these vintage Time Life sewing books that I picked up at a thrift shop.
My small fabric stash, which is organized into washed/not washed/solids/essexs/non cottons/mini scrap bag/medium scrap bag/large scrap bag/precuts/uglies/kid crafts/WIP. ( The uglies and kid craft fabrics do not get to be displayed. They're tossed into a cardboard box and kept in the closet.)
My parents. Mom passed away in '96.
There you have it. Now you have seen my 100 square foot space to work and play in. It's SO nice to have a separate room to be creative in. I really won't know what to do when #2 comes around. Thanks for stopping in today!
