SEW Sweet!

Tomorrow is Pink Saturday at  How Sweet the Sound
I have been waiting for this day to share with you my wonderful give away treasures I received from Brenda at Shabby Cats and Roses. Hop over and see her darling pink Christmas tree.
First of all, look at what I saw when I opened the box.

Ask me if I’m ashamed at how my give away wins were mailed?  Um, let’s just say shoved in a padded envelope.  You be the judge.

Is this cute or what?
Look at the back of the pillow.  It’s as darling as the front!
After Christmas I can turn it around and use it for every day, love it!

But no, that’s not all – Even a sweet treat!

By now I’m hovering in the corner of embarrassment.
I must apologize to anyone who has received a give away gift from me.  I vow to do better.  Starting New Years resolutions early.
If you know me at all, you know that I am a lover of red.  One might ask, “Where oh where will she use that in her home?”  Now don’t you worry your pretty little heads.
It just so happens that my sewing room is brown, blue, and yup you guessed it, PINK.
Could it look any cuter than this on my shabby pink chair?

Now I thought I would show you a bit of my little sewing retreat.  It’s a small room.  In fact on our home plans it shows it as a nursery/study just off of the master bedroom.

The ladder shelf has a few vintage finds and holds a lot of my pincushion collection.

I found this vintage machine at a shop in St. George, UT. for only $25.  I covered the box with yup, scrappy looking bird paper.

Here’s some of the wall décor.
My cousin, Betty gave me this old sewing book. I grouped it with other vintage items on this cork board.  Notice my cute dress form pincushion?  That was a gift from a Quilt retreat.  They used alot of vintage sewing notions to embellish it.

I love this cabinet for stashing small fabric scraps.

And of course, what’s a sewing room without a quilt? A wire chandy made from an old fence can’t hurt either.

I painted my walls brown last Spring.  Not sure if I love them.  It does darken the room.  I may change them in the future.  But for now, chocolate it is.
My room may be small, but for me it is ever SEW SWEET!

I will be sharing my sewing room retreat with these parties:

Love your ladder shelf. On the last shelf you have a sewing caddy. I have the same one given to me from a friend. I gave mine a makeover in white with light pink and roses inside and out. I will have to share it again sometime.
