Earlier I was cleaning out a drawer or two from under my cutting table. I have some drawers of "what was I thinking when I cut these extra units?" I harvested enough HSTs or triangles to piece these...

I would LOVE, and I mean l-o-v-e to see your sewing areas, large or small. I am trying to make my now little space worth every square inch. It will be in my bedroom. Please email me a picture of yours to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much!

You know we are under construction here. I don't think we are going to add on the big room for me to use for a sewing room. So I thought I was going to have what was our guest room to use as a sewing room. So I was doing my usual thing when faced with a new room situation. I had a piece of graph paper marked off with the size of my "new" sewing room. I had cut out little pieces of fabric to scale and was moving them about in the room. Then my husband walks over and basically says "That's not going to happen. Kill your ideas now." Now he was much nicer than that. Of course. But I saw my "dream" going down the drain like so many dirty soap suds.
Here is what I have now. I realize it's a lot more than many of you have. It is not a designated sewing space. In fact, these pictures were taken from my (unmade) bed first thing this morning, from right to left. But I have room for my design wall, cutting table, and sewing table. Luxury, right??
