I snapped some pics in the good lighting yesterday - without cleaning up or "staging" anything (now I wish I had!), although I had just swiffered the floor! Most of the furniture is from good ol' Ikea.
I feel very fortunate to have such a well lit and spacious sewing room. It used to be Tommy's bedroom and has the best natural light in the house. He upgraded to his sister's bedroom when she left home, and so I graduated from the attic, to this room. I haven't always had a sewing room, and I probably won't always have one, but I sure am enjoying it while I can!
On the design wall (merely a piece of batting tacked to the wall), I have arranged one quadrant of my second "stars in a time warp" quilt - I'm calling it Hartwell Stars. Here is the plan:
Too big to lay out all at once, so I am arranging it in four sections.
The closet was once a hallway, and the wall paper in there (what's left of it) dates probably from the 1880's.
For basting quilts, I head downstairs to the dining room. I love my dining room table - nicks and marks from countless quilts basted - So many family meals around this table, and projects of all kinds. It has withstood hard use. Can you tell I'm feeling wistful, approaching the last months before we become empty nesters?
Where else does quilting take place around here? When I am hand quilting or stitching sashiko, this is usually where I am, watching TV (Netflix, Hulu) with David in the evenings.
I love using my Mom's old Shaker box (actually, round Colonial style, single point - not the typical oval Shaker style) to hold my handwork essentials. Like the dining room table, it is developing a nice patina from years of use. Wabi sabi.
A sewing room full of stuff is nice, but, here is (almost) all one really needs!!!
