A space of my own!

We started planning on building a house with my in laws about 3 1/2 years ago. We bought some land and then set out to build. There were a few hiccups. It took longer than we all planned but we are finally living here! We still have things to do, I am sure it will be that way for quite some time.

In our original plans my sewing space was shoved in the laundry room but then when we were building we made the decision to use beams. Beams meant we could fill in the attic which meant a playroom and a craft room! I feel really lucky to have this space. I would love some shelving and a design wall but for now I have two old dining room tables and an old unit we used for a pantry once upon a time but I am not going to complain about it. It totally works and I am happy!

Now to add some character to my space and figure out how I want to cover that storage space up there. It is too white in here…

Speaking of color I got some fun mail in the midst of packing. Miss E’s Posy quilt was featured in the Pink Chalk Fabrics newsletter a few weeks ago so I was lucky to receive a $20 gift certificate. I went on that day and found Organic Amy Butler Soul Blossom prints in the clearance section. Needless to say I got them plus one text print for a steal of a deal!

And then when I was unpacking these pretties showed up. Both of these bundles are allotted for Christmas presents.

We are starting to feel a little more settled. Yesterday I took some down time and made a little something for my sil’s birthday. I will share it with you later this week. Sometimes it is just good to sew and create. It makes me feel better at least!

Hurray for a good sewing space! I feel lucky that I got a whole room in the new house (there were a few houses we looked at that I would have had to squeeze into the livingroom). Those walls need some mini quilts!

It looks lovely. I love those beams, it will look really spectacular covered in quilts!

How much fun you will have with the blank canvas that is your sewing space. You might have to participate in lots of swaps for mini quilts and mug rugs to decorate. Can't wait to see what you do.
