My Sewing Room

My sewing room is truly amazing in my mind but that is as far as it has gotten, maybe someday when we have a bigger house or my kids are at college. For now it is the kitchen table if I get out the sewing machine and my hand stitching is done in the following two spots:

Upstairs in the living room I have my Dutalier Rocking Chair that I LOVE. So comfy. I also have a second or third project waiting to work on hanging out in the bookshelf. I have my wonderful light how do people stitch without a good light! I love mine I have two, one for upstairs and one for downstairs and I got them at the Cabella's Sporting Goods store, lol. They are "tie-flying" lamps, lol. Apparently men are not impressed with the wonders of a good true light lamp and they were clearanced out for a steal! They were the same name brand as the one my craft store had for $120 but put in Cabellas packaging and only $39!

Anyway I am easily distracted, my second sewing spot is in our exercise/toys/tv room. When I want to spend time with my husband but cannot listen to another history channel special I stitch and at least spend time with him in the same room. But I have to say that history is sinking in, I don't think I am listening but on some level I am learning because my trivial pursuit skills are HUGELY improving, lol.

But if I were to create a sewing room I would imagine it something like this:
But I would paint it a wonderful warm french country kind of a blue.
And I would simply have to sew this up for my sewing machine in shades of blue.
You can find the pattern HERE if your interested, just scroll down a bit.


  1. I love that dream sewing room, too. I'd probably have it in a pink color (like a blush, rather than a true pink). I like the sewing machine accessories, too!

  2. I too love this dream sewing room. I am in the process of creating this room which will also be used as a guest room. I wonder where the shelving was purchased...any idea?

  3. Lucky girl! Home Depot, would be my best guess from the mounting system, but IKEA has amazing flexibility to their shelving as well. Happy Creating!
