So on Saturday morning we ventured out to Ikea (Hubby’s least favourite place) and by Saturday afternoon I was filling the new furniture with my sewing goodies. It’s beyond awesome to have everything out of boxes so I can see it all! My sewing room is now a place I can’t wait to get creative in 🙂 It’s not quite finished yet as Hubby has to make me one of these and sort out my ‘design wall’ but it’s well on the way!
I’m going to show you some of my favourite bits here and put the rest of the photos I took over on Flickr if you fancy a nose around 😉
Cheap-as-chips, glass spice jars filled with ribbons and beads.
This wall makes me so happy! All those minis were made for me by other talented ladies and I’m so thrilled to have them up in my new space 🙂

I’m also thrilled to have the treadle sewing machine out on display at last! The poor girl has been hiding away in her cabinet for well over a year just waiting to be released 😉

Then I guess I should give you a peek inside my fabric cupboard 🙂 I could probably set up shop, not that I’d be able to part with it! Close ups of the goodies are in the Flickr set. Top shelf is Moda precuts, 2nd shelf is solids and linens, 3rd shelf is mainly Freespirit – Tula Pink, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Ty Pennington… 4th shelf Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner flannel, Laurie Wisbrun, Heather Ross, Karen Lewis, Leanne Fanny, Lucie Summers, 5th shelf Quilt backings and random fabrics I can’t remember and finally bottom shelf is Home decor weight fabrics and dressmaking fabrics.
There is also a large wicker ottoman stuffed full of home decor weight fabric and another ottoman full of offcuts of batting. Seriously, I have a real problem if I need an ottoman for scraps of batting! I also have 2 large plastic boxes which house my scraps and my WIPs. Let’s just say the WIPs box is rather fuller than I would like 😉 Now that the room is nearly organised I think I’d better get cracking into that stash! Thanks to Hubby for indulging me with a room all to myself and my fabric addiction, he’s a star. Catch you soon x
