Sewing room tag...

Robyn dared us all to show our sewing rooms/areas... so here goes!
I took over my DH's study when he was no longer working from home...I used to have stuff all over the house, now it is pretty much in the room as well as 2 baskets in the family room where I sit at night. DH still gazes wistfully at his ex-study...but he's been pretty good about it!
I have a bookcase...still share a shelf or two with him...hehe...where I keep patterns, books & little bits & pieces...

There is an old meat safe that holds fabrics, WIP's, button jars, linens, laces & threads...piled high with quilts for the cat to sleep on... a spot for my cutting mat with a light above it...

a desk with the usual paraphernalia...repros in a box on the floor...

a corner with books, chair...basket with current inspirations in it...no one can ever get to the chair!!!!...a little ironing board...

and the rest of my books...cut strips in a shoe box...stranded threads in a folk art box...lace from Paris (thanks Julie & Raelee)...an enjoyable space!

Hope you liked the tour

Sewing room tag...Yippee!!
I think your husband's 'ex-study' is much nicer as a sewing room and what a beaut!! Wooohoo!!
Thanks for sharing with us.
