My Stitching Space

We've been in our new house just over a year.  Time really flies by!  I've been wanting to show off my nice big stitching/craft studio, but it's way far from being presentable.  I have so many ideas of what to do in here, but now it looks like a hurricane hit.  So here are a few highlights of what's somewhat presentable.

In it's former life, this room was a media room with some clunky built-in painted shelving surrounding an opening that held a HUGE flat screen tv.  Did I say it was HUGE?  Now that opening houses my sewing table.


I used the clunky shelves to set up displays of stitched pieces and supplies.  I think they kind of look like shadow boxes.






I have this fabulous solid oak magazine rack that I used for display in my shop.  It sits at the end of my cutting table and houses my WIP's and some vintage sewing magazines.


I keep my projects in plastic bags or sleeves when I'm not working on them.  The fabric is out of the frame and all the instructions and floss and other stuff is kept together.  Actually, not all of these are WIP's; some are HSSY's (haven't started stitching yet).  But when I have everything together and ready to go, it goes in the rack.  When I feel like stitching on something, I can easily see what's waiting.

This room also has my desk and computer, some bookshelves and the cage for the zebra finches (a.k.a. the Bird and Breakfast).  Someday I'll get motivated to paint, hang my stitching on the walls, sew some window treatments . . .

The parts of the room that you showed are great. I really like the cubbies with all your stitching. The rack with all the kitted up projects is also a great idea.

I can't believe it's been over a year since you moved! I feel like I was just reading about it. lol! Love your sewing room. That must have been a super huge TV screen! The shelves with your stitching smalls look fantastic! And I love the little magazine rack with your WIPs and sometime WIPs. What a great idea!

Your sewing room looks like a wonderful place to hangout. Love the 'shadow boxes' to display your needlework.
