No New Pictures

Well, my camera broke.  Sad smile  So I don’t have any new pictures to show you.  Not that it would matter if I had a camera since I’ve been bogged down with hand embroidery for the last 2 weeks and will probably continue to be bogged down with it for the foreseeable future.  That’s what happens when you decide to heavily embroider the entire outer border of a quilt.  I keep telling myself it will be SO PRETTY when it’s finished that it will worth all the work.  We shall see. 

In the mean time, however, I was asked a couple of weeks ago by a blog reader to give everybody a peek at my sewing space.  That is complicated since I have recently moved all of my ‘stuff’ from my sewing room into the dining room so I could spend more quality time with my husband and also get some sewing done at the same time.  But I have pictures of my sewing room before all this happened, so I will show you pictures of that.

Ready?  Here goes ………


This photo shows the desk I use for my sewing machine and it also accommodates my laptop.  I can multi-task using this setup ….. you know read blogs/ e-mail/watch Netflix while I sew.  It worked so well for me.  I haven’t been able to get this kind of thing worked out in the dining room where I sew now.  That kind of makes me miss it.  I also had my ironing board situated so that I could sew a seam and then just spin around and press it on the ironing board without having to get up which was really nice.  Just one more thing … I had that wing back chair!  I loved having my dog (sometimes more than one when I had more than one) right there with me for company.  Alison is sitting there in this picture and she passed away a little more than a year ago.  I still miss her.  Anyway,  I digress …..


Here is another view from the bedroom doorway.  This is a smallish room.  It had been a dressing room before I transformed it into a sewing room.  Let me tell ya,  I did a whole lot more sewing here than I ever did dressing!  LOL.  I still keep some clothing items in the dresser, and the light is so good in here that I always put my make-up on in here. 


This is yet another view …. a straight shot from the bedroom door into the hallway.  It shows the little cabinet that I use to store buttons and fabrics, stabilizers and embroidery supplies.

These pictures are taken of my sewing area as it is now in the dining room.  These pictures were taken at night, so it is much darker, but on any day this room is always darker than in my actual sewing room.  I do have a wonderful view of my back yard though.  It works almost as well as the old set up and my husband appreciates the fact that I have rearranged everything for him.  And that is really all that counts in the long run.

I hope you have enjoyed the short tour.  I will be back next week with a new post and some new pictures!  I’m working on getting a new camera (wink).  Until then…..

Enjoy,  Merry Gay

  1. Merry, I sew in my living room as our home too small for me to have a sewing room. My supplies are all over the house & in the attic. I like looking across the room at my hubby in his study. Bless you for moving your sewing studio to be closer to your hubby. Many blessings!!!
