My Craftin'-Sewin'-Stitchin' Room

Here they are craft fans, pictures of the place I call my "sanctuary".
My very own room of sanity, my Craftin' Room.

(You can click the pics for a bigger view)

This is where I do all of my cuttin'. I have all of my fat quarters and 1/2 yard pieces rolled or folded and stowed on the top shelf.
My "tools" are on the pegboard and all of my stitchin' fabrics and stuffing are on the bottom shelf. I have my stitchin' fabrics sorted by type in the bins.
The white drawers hold all of my laces, ribbons, felt and small fabric scraps.

The wicker basket holds "need to be finished" projects

The dark file cabinet holds my craft patterns and a ton of genealogy notes.

Here's my sewing machine and all of my bit's and bob's for finishing different craft projects.
All of my Caron threads are in the mirrored cabinet, the white drawers hold other threads, button's, bead's and etc. Sewing machine essentials are in the wood cabinet. The room door is a dutch door so I can close the bottom half to keep dogs out when needed.

Here's where I keep all of my cross stitch magazines (center & left), pattern books (right), freebie patterns (gray binder) and my original designs (blue binder) plus anything else that needs a temparary home until I get it sorted.
The big blue container, you can only see half of, holds all of my 1 yard or more fabrics and yes it is FULL. Spoiles from working at a fabric store and a craft store in California.

Here's my computer that I hardly use, all of my extra DMC, Caron and Pearl Cotton threads. My DMC on bobbins and Mill Hill beads are in the gray tackle box.
And a BAP/UFO on the scroll frame.
Of course, the closet is full of craft stuff like pinecones, nuts and moss in containers that I collected for wreaths and baskets. I'd really like to clean that space up but my DH has stuff in there too and doesn't want me moving it.

And yes, that's a rifle case next to the floss, nothing stitchy in there, just my rifle.
A girl's gotta protect her stash ya know. LOL

Hope you enjoyed the tour, I didn't take a picture of Hamilton my cockatiel, but you can see a corner of his cage in the first picture.
I do want to thank you all so very much for the wonderful comments that you leave behind, I appreicate each and every one of them.

Take Care Everyone and Happy Stitchin' and Craftin'
Hugs & Stitches .... Sandy

  6. Thank's for the tour, looks like a very nice area to work in.
    Be always in stitches.

  7. Loved looking at your craft room and drooling over all your stash.

  8. What a nice room! I have the DMC floss boxes just like too.

  9. I am jealous!!! LOL. My oldest daughter leaves for college in a month and I just might have to take over her room - lol - after I clean it with a backhoe - she is horrible at keeping it clean. Actually now that I am getting divorced I have more room in the house to do things and as I have the money I am buying some storage boxes for screws to put my floss in. That will help me alot with my floss organization.
