Now, keep in mind that until about 2 or three months ago, the only thing I had sewn on with my new sewing machine was cards. That's why I wanted the machine. But then, something got into me when I saw directions on a blog showing how to make an apron. I've been sewing up a storm since!
My sewing room was, up until a few months ago, an empty room. Sitting there.... lonely. I took my old table and the dresser and desk that were left in our basement by the previous owners and set up a room of my own. Just for sewing. This room still has the wallpaper on the walls that was there when we moved in. It matches the kids' playroom too. I am not offended by it, so I haven't changed it. As a matter of fact, I love plaid, so I really don't mind it at all. You'll see what I mean.
In this picture, you get to see my plaid walls. I'm sure some of you will think they are hidious, but I really kind of like them. I'll probably paint them someday, but for now, they're stayin'.
Okay, the mirror was also in the room. I had a string of lights that I wanted to put on my shabby chic tree this year. They looked pastel in the package and when I lit them up, they were way brighter than I wanted. The other day, I went to the $ store and they had these packages of silk flowers 4 for $1, so I got some. This is what I did with them. I put one petal section on each light. I thought it looked festive.
This is also the table where I cut my material and where I iron. I just use a bath mat folded in half as my ironing board.
You can see the shelves that go around two walls of this room. I have the boy's toys that they don't play with much up there as well as Jeff's old trucks from when he was a kid and some dolls that were mine when I was ... well... in my 20's and into country stuff more. My Great Aunt Gretchen made them for me to match my 80's decor.
