When You Love to Sew...and Loose Your Sewing Room...what do you do?

Sewing Nook in the Extra Bed Room
This is an OLD house..This bedroom had this
cut out in the corner..No one was sure what it
was for??  But.......... It was transformed into a
sewing nook..  My two little sewing tables fit
perfectly in that spot.Kenny built  the shelves
above  to hold books, patterns, and some accessories.
The wall next to it,  was just the right length  to
put my embroidery machine table and a book
case. The book case holds baskets for my sewing
stuff [zippers, buttons, elastic.. etc]

NOTE: click on photos to enlarge.. Shows much clearer.

This is the rest of the bedroom.. It's not
 like having my big sewing room.. But.. when space is
limited... you find the little nooks work quiet!!

Fabric Stash... as you know, I have TOO  MUCH fabric..
When we made the decision, to make this house move.
I knew , I did not have room for my fabric stash..So,
I gave lots of it away.. I donated lots to Salvation army. I couldn't
bring myself to part with  the rest.. ha  The hall in this house,
has  a very wide/long hall. I used it  wisely.. Kenny built
a really big book shelf to hold my fabrics. [Isn't he sweet?]
I found the black/white fabric totes for $3 each. They fit
perfectly in the shelves. Plus I had a few extra shelves
to hold books ,etc.  PS---I will be doing post of  the rest of
the hall and how I used it...coming soon.

 I will be doing post of the rest of our "little old house". Lots of work has been done...and there is lots of work to come.  I will
be sharing with you... the before's and the afters..

Happy Memorial Day to you and your family..
