You Might Want To Sit Down For This News...

***
Mom, Jacquelynne, Lori & Kimberly (just to name of few of you that try to keep me accountable on taking time out to sew and do crafts.) You and all my other lovely friends out there in blogland might just want to sit down for this one!

I've got my sewing area set up! This is the big hallway overlooking the formal living room right up from the stairs. Tim made this sewing platform for me.


He installed this little doodad right behind the sewing machine~Keeps all my cords nice and neat and out of my way...Love that genius of a man!

Everything is in it's proper place. Hey Lori, recognize the cute monogrammed cup holder you sent me? It has a new purpose -I love it, thanks sis!


I set up a cutting and ironing center-Because any true seamstress knows you've got to press, press, press those seams down!
In the corner are the patterns I've created...Yes, mom the patterns are finished.


I even set up a play area for Princess Newt Newt Nodie Noders (my grand-baby Noelle.)


I can hear you all in my head saying, "this is wonderful Robin, BUT have you actually started sewing?"
I laugh!
 Baby steps people baby steps!!!Though I might surprise you!
 Love you all~

  6. I dream of having a space so perfect! I operate by overtaking my dining room and praying no one stops by.

    It works. I havent (and no plans to!) moved out of my "shoe" yet. ;)

    Can't wait to see what comes out of this. Please don't make us wait too long.

  15. Beautiful! (and much neater than my work space!) Of course, now you have one less excuse...
    If my space WERE that neat, I probably wouldn't want to use it... I'd just sit and look at it all day!

  28. Robin your sewing "room" is so beautiful and well organized that it must make you just want to sit down and create beautiful things. It turned out just wonderfully. Can't wait to see what pretty things you make there.

  30. How is everything so neat?!? I don't like to even let myself see my sewing/office/scrapbook/painting studio/ladybug collector. I really need to clean. Thanks for the inspiration.

  31. Hi Robin: I, too, just found yur blog...it is awesome! Your sewing space is so cool...I remember many years of sewing on the kitchen table and having to clear it all for every meal. Bummer! Had a problem getting on your "How to Countryfy a chandelier" and one other. I am so new to blogging,,,have one but it is not available to publish to the world yet...still working on it.
