a room of my own ~

ah, nothing like the feeling of walking into a clean sewing room.
I worked all day yesterday in there, cleaning, organizing & purging old 'stuff'
and it feels so good!
my thanks to my sweet hubby for helping me arrange it this way...
(love you peterjohn)
so come on in for a visit, won't you?
my worktable/desk

another view of my worktable/desk

the burlap & muslin curtains held on by old clothespins and tied up with twine
help to conceal bins of supplies....

sewing baskets, glass jars and tins hold more trims and supplies ~

the 'sewing corner' of the room...

another view of the "sewing corner"...

...and yet another view.

this is where i sit & stitch, hook or punch...
...my cozy little blue chair that Pete carried upstairs for me ~

fabrics on a wire rack stand ready for my needle and thread ~
the room feels like it's a part of my home now...
I wasn't happy with the layout, things were all over the place and I couldn't stand the clutter.
now I have a peaceful room to work in while watching movies on dvd ~
Hmmm....let's see...should it be
Practical Magic? or Hocus Pocus? ....
have a beautiful evening everyone!
Blessings from Notforgotten Farm...

Lori your room looks wonderful!! Organizing stuff is very theraputic. It always helps to know where stuff is when the ideas get flowing!

Whoo hoo!!! What a wonderful retreat/craft room. I am fortunate enough right now to have a room I'm transforming into a partial craft-guest room. Still need a sewing table and some type of shelving...yours is wonderful!! ~Kriss~

Kim said...

Great room! Sooo jealous ;)

Debra said...

Love your sewing room; did the same last week with mine, and now I love being there creating! My personal favorite is " Practical Magic".

April said...

I love your room Lori! I have a big shelf that is just like yours. Great idea! I may borrow it! lol
You getting your room in order makes me want to tackle mine! Tackle is the main word... LOL

Joy said...

Angie Burrett said...

Your lovely organised sewing room has given me the nudge to reorganise my space, I seem to constantly work in a muddle - not good - clean tidy and sorted is good - holiday weekend project decided!! Thanks for sharing!

The room looks wonderful. I love your dress form. I do not as of yet have a room of my own but I have a corner of our living room and that makes me happy. My current viewing pleasure while stitching has been Murder, She Wrote on Netflix. I don't know, but I think Angela Lansbury would make a perfect goode witch :)

kelley said...

what a cozy and inspiring room...love the idea of covering up those big bins...once the cats wander in to help the room will be prefect!
