Sewing Room



The Stashbuster topic of the week is sewing rooms. I'm fortunate in that I have a fairly large space to work in. The space I use is an addition to our home that was, evidently, once a screen porch. The room was closed in prior to our purchasing the home so we just added vinyl flooring and it works great for me. It faces south and overlooks the pool and canal behind our home. Lot's of windows let a lot of light in (also heat!) which is great during the day, but the room is poorly lit at night. The two biggest drawbacks are the lack of electric plugs (only two) and no vent for the air conditioner. It's a long and narrow room which is perfect for my machine quilting frame. I'm including two photos of the room. Viewer beware - I did not straighten up prior to taking the photos! There is no closet so I have my stash in old dressers and storage drawers. There is a long shelf under the quilting frame that I store my batting on. I mostly buy batting in the package as I have discovered that one of our cats likes to nap on batting.

What a lovely view you have in your room. Do you receive inspiration from the view?

Lucky you ... my room is in our basement and my view outside right now is just grass! Mind you, I've got great lighting and 4 outlets, plus heat and a/c. :o)
