One of the main perks in fiinishing out the basement, is that I get a sewing room. Finally! A room of my own! I'm still trying to get the house back together after all this stuff's been done but last week I decided to crack down and tidy my sewing room. After all, I had some Christmas sewing to do, which obviously made it a priority.
I painted several weeks ago and didn't love the color. It needed girlied up a bit. So I took some painter's canvases and covered them with fabric. 5 minutes with my rotary cutter and a staple gun and I had art. The picture over my desk is a series of pictures of my mom at about age 5. She was pretty cute. She used to sew all the time. The picture to the right of that is a magnetic board. I was going to hang it just as a dry erase board, but it had some ugly spots, so I covered it with fabric too. The big beautiful flower? G made me that. :)
I've spent hours folding my stash to make it neat and tidy. I've noticed in looking at other sewing rooms online, that my stash isn't really THAT big. I would like to get a bunch of it used up tho and some of those pieces have been hangin' around a while.
There ya have it.... my happy place.
