Hello my friends,
every year I look forward to Karen's party where us bloggers share our creative spaces.
There are always so many fabulous spaces and ideas to see at this party. By the end, your head will be spinning! :)
I have shared my Craft Room a few times, so I thought this year I would share my sewing room.
(collection of children's irons and sewing machines)
I must admit, I'm not sure if it's my sewing room, or my playroom. (wink)
I am just a kid at heart and have a weakness for old toys. I have had a few in this room for quite some time, but the other day I brought in some more that were previously in our bonus room. That's where our grands hang out and play.
This little stove has seen better days, but it stole my heart when I spied it at a vintage flea.
The sweet button bouquet was a gift from a friend.
I recently scored these fabulous spools of thread at a thrift. The large ones were $.75 and the small $.25
I love how the one has an old price tag on it!
This cute high chair is my latest found toy. I love the chippy blue paint. The little teddy bear was a Mothers Day gift from one of my grands years ago. Have to hang on to that!
A little crib is doing double duty holding pieces for my
hexie quilt and looking cute all the while.
The hexies will be added to this one draped over my sewing basket. A dolls playpen is great for holding the fabric for an online quilt called the "splendid sampler" I joined. The finished blocks sit in a baggie on top.
As you can see, it's not all just fun and games. I do have some baskets with actual sewing items. :)
My pressing station. This room is small. It's just off of our master suite. On the house plans it is called nursery/library. So now it is sewing/playroom. lol!
I like having some of my quilts on display.
A wonky chandy made from garden edging holds some old sewing notions.
Not all of the décor is kiddie themed. I can act like an adult, (when I have too) ha, ha!
This little cabinet is great for holding scraps.
old suitcases do double duty as well. Pretty, yet functional.
I modge podged fabric onto my mannequin a few years ago and made her a girly skirt and apron.
On the other side of the room I have my pincushion collection and a few aprons on display.
And yes, I do sew. (every now and then) Really, I don't get in there much once spring hits. Come fall, I'm back in the
mood to sew.
Maybe then I will get to some of my "unfinished projects".
Honestly, I can't tell you how long this basket quilt has been draped over my chair. The little banner reminds me that I need to 'SEW'!
Aha, look what is hidden behind closed doors. Small space, so I try to keep it organized.
This shoe rack is great for holding trims and such.
There you have it, my place to play and sew every now and then.
Can't wait to see yours! Yup, I like my head to spin.
I will be also sharing with these fun parties:
