A little tour of where the magic happens, and the chaos reigns.

Ugh, the pictures are not in the right order. Oh well, it's a guided tour so no fear of getting lost. The room tends to be quite dark and craves good bright light! I am finding it hard to spread out in the room as its a little small and there is too many things going on.

First stop is the sewing machine table. This is actually the after picture. I just have to have certain things at my finger tips when I am sewing, sicsors, pin cushion (the red tomato) and an iron. I am crippled without my iron close by! The table is passed onto me from my mom as she was downsizing her own sewing area, as is the machine hiding behind the iron and at the left, forgot to get a picture of the serger. The chair was a freebie from the dump. It is a perfect chair! It has a wide seat (to accomoate MY wide seat;) it is fully adjustable with, cushie and my feet rest firmly on the floor! It is really stable too with 5 arm base. It is just nice basic grey too. Here is my make do cutting table. I have an antique sewing machine base that I really want a new top for. It is super heavy and stable, pretty and it can smoosh right up to the wall using that precious few inches from that step up wall. It has been kidnapped and held hostage in my daughters room though, she has had her keyboard on it. You can see my dogs "nest" over on the left on the floor.
Here is the table that should be in my room. It does need a slightly bigger table top, but I love how stable it is. The card table isnt too stable.
here is my one shelving unit in the room. I desperately need more! I have an old beat up dresser in the corner that I forgot to snap a picture of where there is more fabric in dwarers. This shelf also holds my photo albums and trims for scrapbooking. There is a roll of brown paper I use for making patterns and on the floor next to it, is some scrapbooking papers.
Oh, here is the before of my sewing table. Other things you cant see is a 'nest' of a blanket that is my dogs bed for when I am in there. He hates being in this room, I think cause the foor is cold, and he will whine and get under my feet if I don't have his nest set uplol what a pampered dog!
I think this room needs a serious cosmetic makeover. It isn't terribly messy in there, I didn't locate any lost articles or find any forgotten treasures, but it sure is ugly and boring in there! However, tidying up things, sweeping the floor and getting out the garbage inspired me to do a little creating and I got a couple of wristlets done up! I will share those in a bit. for now though, the bathroom is beginning to look like a science experiment gone wrong:-?
