Where I Sew!

On the Pink Chalk site they are having sewing space show and tell all month. It is a lot of fun to peek into other people's spaces and see how they have their sewing areas set up. The link to Pink Chalk is here on my blog if you care to take a look.
Meanwhile, here is my studio on a tidy day (one in a million) and before the second Gammill was introduced Enjoy the tour!

My studio as seen from my kitchen

Aunt Sewphie and Uncle Leo keep watch over the sewing

My Gammill takes up a huge part of the room, as does the cutting table

The view to the sewing area from the Gammill

Behind the Gammill, I store thread and batting. Pantograph storage is at the end of the Gammill.

Here is the sewing space. Believe me, it is NEVER this tidy!!

Books and the nifty notion cabinet.(white drawers next to the bookcase) My hubby got the drawers free and I painted them white and added captions in the slots for what is in each drawer. I love it!

The bulk of my stash is rolled and stored this way. I like that I can pull a fabric, use some, roll it again and put it right back without everything tumbling out. These shelves are for 1/2 yard or more.

Smaller cuts of fabric are stored in bins and drawers.

This is my "sitck". I made it for a guild challenge where we were given a fat quarter and had to make something. Two ladies were eyeing it up at the final judging for a prize, and one asked,"What is it?..." The other replied, "It's a stick!" I was standing close by and heard the exchange and chuckled. It is indeed a stick! I love it!!

Aaaah! Music. I have to have it all day long.

From the Gammill into the kitchen and the living room beyond. Makes it easy to hear the oven timer go off!
