Show Us Where You Create!

Since my granddaughter came for a month long visit and made her first quilt I have been hankering to reorganize my sewing room and make her a spot just for her to sit and sew in.  I had also gotten hemmed in behind my machine and didn't have as much room as was needed for maximum comfort when working.  So for the past couple of days I have been working on getting the room rearranged and cleaned up.  I was quiet pleased with how it looked when I finished tonight!

I wanted to share photos with my friends so I thought, heck! Why not give them the opportunity to share as well...and possibly motivate some to get in their sewing rooms and do some reorganizing and cleaning of their own!  If you are like me, it only takes seeing someone's progress to put me in the mood to do the same!

So, make those photos of  the places where you create, create a post on your blog and come link up using the Mr. Linky below!  Please be kind and link to my blog in your post so others can find their way here and share their creative spaces as well!

After you link up take some time to visit the other quilters and their blogs.  You never know when you will find a new blog that you will fall in love with!  And all because of Mr. Linky!

Here are the photos of my creative space! It is upstairs in part of our bonus room. There is another room behind that closed door but it is used for storage so no peeking. :)

I am going to link up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced and WIP Wednesday because this definitely was a work in progress!

Welcome  To MY Creative Space!
This is Miss Allie's Sewing Corner 
(there WILL be a machine there before she comes back!)
And we cannot forget about The Gang!!

Before you go thinking that I have gotten floosie in my old age, the columns and glass shelving had been used downstairs in our in-home gift shop.  Hubby has retired from wood turning so we tried to sell the displays but no-one needed them.  So, we took down the regular banquet tables that I originally was using and brought these upstairs.... it was either that or take them to the dump because we had nowhere to store them!  Made the room look larger, I will give them that! :)

So.... Feel free to link away and let us see your creative space!!

Be a sweetie.....If you are linking to an older post on your blog, Be sure and do me the favor of linking to my blog on yours with a new post telling your readers about the linky party and to please come and link up too.

OK Thearica, I love your creative space! And so organized! I'll have to get mine straightened up and then I'll post my pics! So lucky to have a grand daughter that wants to follow in your footsteps. Mine are too into ipods and cell phones.

This is a lovely comfy, creative space Thearica.

I hope I entered the correct URL. I had posted photos in May of my current (temporary) quilting studio. It's very large and has a spectacular shady, green view. I'm enjoying the extra square footage and will have to scale back when I move into my real studio. We don't have a dining room in this temporary house, so I get to use the table with all the leaves in this studio. :)
There are photos of my soon to be new space scattered thru the blog. Right now, it's still an empty sunroom. I'm hopeful we'll make progress on 2 major issues today and we'll be able to starting moving back in at the end of the month.

I should add that I love looking at others' work areas. Quilters have such terrific ideas and we can inspire one another to finding good solutions for fabric storage, design walls and more.

Thearica, your space is amazing. It's so cool that you have separate rooms for your longarm and for making tops. I like your columns and glass tabletops. Looks elegant!

OMG it's so TIDY!
I used to have a little house at the end of my garden where I had several rooms for sewing. Now it's just the dining table and has to be packed away every night!

Needled Mom said...

Your sewing space is just fabulous. It looks so organized too.

Jerimi said...

Great job on your creative space! Now I'm feeling a bit inspired to get going on my office. :P

Thanks for sharing!

You have one awesome creative space!!
I had to give up my craft room for a bedroom for 3 of my granddaughters, but I have plans on how I am going to make it once they can get a place of their own.

kristastitched said...

oh my gosh i'm so jealous of all your space!! i have an extra bedroom which was going to be my sewing room, but my best bud has been crashing in there for months and will probably never leave, haha! (its ok, i make him pay rent!) anyways, my space is in the dining room.

I had wondered about the Grecian columns...but at least it creates a nice work space for you. I bet it brightens up the area a lot. Looks like a great space to work in!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Your sewing area looks great. I love the glass tables with the pedestals. They seem to brighten and open up the area. I have been kicked from one room to another this year. I had my own room for a few months until our Daughter came home and took her room back. Then I was back in the living room until I bought new furniture. Instead of a love seat the sent us a full size couch (same price) so I lost my little corner. Now I am in a corner of my Son's (12) room. He said I can have a corner since he only sleeps in there anyways. I love the way 12 year olds think lol. I never know where I might be next.

I wish my space is as big as yours. We tried to turn our garage into a studio for me, but it just didn't work out. I love the glass table with the pedestals for the legs. If I had a room this big, I would be hiding in it all day :-)
