I realized the other day that I never shared the photos of my new craft room. I vowed I would, for posterity's sake, take some photos of it; not knowing how long I might have it for~ and knowing for certain it will never be this clean again.
This is the view from the door, coming into the room.
On the other wall is my fabric stash. Yes, it is large. Much of it was given to me by a very generous, non-sewing Aunt who is in the craft advertising business and finds herself with lots of 1/4 yard samples. Can't do too awful much with 1/8 to 1/4 yard swatches besides quilting, and many are fabrics I wouldn't have chosen for myself but I am grateful for them nonetheless.
And then of course, my smallish bookcase (Matt built it in highschool) filled with some books and scrapbooking supplies. The basket on top is filled with sewing patterns and the laundry basket is FULL (to brimming) with WIP's. Yeah. I need to get on that...
One of my favorite things about my craft room now, is the use of an over-the-door towel hanger for ribbon storage. I bought it for $8.00 at Walmart, hoping it would work well for towels:but they never dried. I was happy to find another (useful) use for it so that my money wasn't wasted on junk. It suits me much better as a ribbon dispenser.
For the record: the photo below is what it looked like the day before I began work on it, though truthfully, it was FAR worse about a month ago!
