Sewing Room Change, AGAIN! Sigh......

I've been working on my sewing room, yet again....and I think I'm finally done with it. I purchased some storage pieces from Ikea and Dear Younger Son put them together for me. While the pieces are a bit more contemporary than I usually like, they have so much storage that I just had to get them.

This large unit has drawers for all my little notions and such. And, the black cube baskets hold my strips. I have a total of 12 of them with strips in them. They are sorted by size and value....lights and darks in 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2 and 4 inch strips. One more basket cube has a few tops in it that I'd like to get finished up soon. And, of course, folded fabric......

This cabinet has my three buckets of strings in it and a couple of basted tops that I am currently quilting. When they are done, I'll show them. Hand quilting is a long process!!! Above the cabinet on the shelves are my quilting magazines. The left two boxes contain my 30's fabrics and the right two boxes hold my bright fabrics. The lower shelf holds my fat quarters. Now, maybe I'll remember that I own them and maybe I'll start using them!!!!

And, my sewing machine remains in front of the window where I can look out at the neighbors!!! Oh, and watch the birds and squirrels too!

And, hanging in the sewing room is something my Granny made. Some day, I'll have to try to take a pic of her teeny, tiny hand quilting stitches. She was an amazing quilter!!!
And, finally, my traditional cabinet that holds my patterns and scraps....30's scraps, CW Reproduction scraps, etc.....Oh, and all my Christmas fabric.

Here is hoping this is the last re-do of my sewing room. I'm ready to get back to sewing!!!!!!

Happy Quilting!!!!!!!!!!
