My entry for IHAN's Giveaway

Kelly, from IHAN is having a wonderful giveaway and we had to pick one of the things to do, to be entered.
I choose showing my sewing room, without cleaning it first.
Kelly is giving, on lucky winner, the chance to win an Accuquilt Go fabric cutter and I want one!
Even though I don't want anyone else to win, check out her contest and her store, she carries a lot of wonderful notions and supplies, all at discounted prices.

This is my sewing area. My machine, a really fancy embroidery machine, that I have no idea how to use and don't ask me what possessed me to buy it, that is another story;) It does sew like a dream and I will learn how to use it, someday. I hang unfinished projects on the chair and on the ladder. I find old cabinets at the consignments and use those to store my sewing items in. And I use plastic, it isn't pretty, but it is functional. I have large basets on the floor too, to store yarns and wool in. That is my chair, my favorite tool to use, lol. I can wheel around the room, while I am working.

This is most of my stash. I really need to organize it again. I take things out and throw them back and now it is all mixed up.
I love cabinets with shelves for things I like to see and doors to hide everything else. As you can see, there are cats everywhere.

And this is where I do my main work, cutting and piecing and ironing. I do like to iron and press my seams as I go.
The table is really too low for cutting on, but would be easier with a Go cutter;) I have baskets on the walls to hold my scraps, scraps on the table and a mix of this and that in boxes and plastic under the table. Since I couldn't clean, you can see my rulers hanging. They go with the basket area on push in hooks. It is a great way to store them and easy to grab. Of course my radio is there too, I love to listen to celtic music when I am creating.
So, now you know what my room looks like normally, especially when I am working on a bunch of projects at once. One of these days I will organize better so I can find things and some curtains would be nice.

It so hard to keep the craft room tidy, isn't it?
You accomplish so much it's no wonder you don't have time to be perfectly organized, but I'm sure you know where to find everything.

It looks like a totally FUN area to me! I posted pics of my work space a few weeks ago. It was & is in about the same messy state as yours. :)

I'm interested in the giveaway... guess I should hop over to check it out.

Looks good to me, Debbie! I think it's a great space! Windows, supplies and a rolling chair! LOL! I roll around my craft area too... Mostly because I keep the bag of M&M's on the opposite side of the room... ;-)

I love seeing your sewing room. It made me feel good because it looks like mine does now! I guess it's hard to keep things clean when being creative, right? :o)

Your room looks good to me....I'm glad I'm not the only one with stuff everywhere :-). I think quilting and crafts are hard to keep tidy.
