    CHRISTMAS PRESENT! NEW SEWING 'SPACE' for 2015!!

    Today I finally placed my order for the 'Sewing Armoir' I've been looking at, it'll give me one place to do my quilting (rather than cutting on the DR table, layout on the bed in the MBR and sewing at the kitchen table - meaning all over the house!) It should be delivered in about 10 days!!

    Still must clean out/make room in a walk-in closet to keep my quilting supplies, but I'm excited that I'll actually have a "quilting space" in one place even if it's a corner in the MBR.

    I know a few folks got new SMs, is anyone planning a new 'sewing space'?

    That looks really well organized with a nice layout I think you will love that
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

        That looks like a nice cabinet! I looked at them years ago, but never bought one.

            I'm so thrilled for you. I remember how excited I was when we got rid of the old daybed and I got storage cabinets instead. It's been the solution to my stash madness. I hope you love your space as much as I do. I still don't have a design wall and there is not room for one. I figure I've lived all these years without one, so I should be okay. Jeff loves to help me lay out blocks and I love having his input. He says he's going to make a quilt all by himself in 2015. Happy Sewing in your own special space!!

                That is fantastic. Please let me know how you like it. Is it the one from Amazon or did you get it elsewhere? I was thinking that would be a great idea for my granddaughters sewing stuff. That way I could just close it up the days she is not here.

                You are going to have a blast doing some new organizing.

                    Thanks everyone - I am excited about the cabinet! Not the cleaning out, but I'll put on some music, pour myself a glass of wine and pretend I'm having a good time - maybe with 2 glasses of wine, I will be having a good time!!! At least I have 10 days to get ready!

                    Bubby, I've been thinking about a 'design wall' - I have such creative ideas when I can't fall asleep at night - course most of them seem to fizzle in the light of day!?!? Anyway, maybe a design wall could be made kinda like a window shade that you can raise or lower in a space that otherwise wouldn't work, even over a window. Naturally I've never had one so maybe raising and lowering isn't such a great idea if it needs to be used all the time - see there, fizzling already!! Also no chance my Mr will be making a quilt, he's supportive enough, but more of a look over your shoulder, give advice 'n his opinion on layout kinda guy.

                    Karen, yes it's fm Amazon - I did a little research on the diff vendors. Some are less $, but mine is extremely reasonable and the reviews on functionality are good, maybe the ext finish won't be ideal - but nothing is ideal.

                    I'm lookin' forward to 'real' quilting in 2015, so wish me luck!
                    HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOOD HEALTH TO ALL!!

                        How nice. I love those kind of cabinets where you can fold everything up and out of site when you need to. I think that is an excellent use of space.

                            You are going to LOVE having a designated place for your sewing and quilting. Someone I know made a portable design wall. I'll try to contact her and find out what she used to put it together.

                              Thanks Sylvia, I'm getting excited! Maybe the closet clean-out won't be so bad. I'm so new at this, I may not need a design wall right away, but if/when I do, I'll definitely have to be creative, so any info/ideas will be welcome.

                              Hope plans for your daughter's wedding are going well and Happy New Year to you and yours!
