Today I mostly puttered around, putting small items where they belonged, and planning what to begin stitching on this next week.
I will show you photos of this room, in a counter clock-wise direction. As you can see, I've not spent a great sum of money on furniture or storage for that matter, but have always found the right piece I need for the job. This big conference table used to be in my husbands offices, but found a home here when we moved. It is great for cutting out fabric.
|This folding table fits well here and doubles as a cutting space when needed.|

So, this room is complete! One place I haven't shown you is UNDER the big cutting table -- it's full bins of UFO's, and hopefully it will look emptier soon.
|Empty looms make great quilt racks!|
|Painting area beyond view -- and is not yet finished.|
Okay, on to the weaving room! This is the corner that used to house my Singer 301 and the cutting table. I will show you this room in a clockwise direction.
|Directly across from smaller loom|
This room is about 14 x 26', and quite difficult to place things in. As you can see, everything is lined up on the walls. It is not in our main living area, but leads out to my husbands workshops.
|Across from wall of yarn. My design wall had to stay where it is.|
You can see my larger storage area for batting, bolts of fabric, etc... At the very end, out of view, is another wall of wire cubes, that hold bins of wool and felted wool that I use for sewing projects.
I have two commercial sewing machines that are unused at this time. I have used them in the past for drapery, upholstery, & sewing in general, but right now I'm not doing anything with them. I should sell one of them. The area with my king size Grace frame is right out the doorway, next to the design wall.
And this concludes the end of our tour!
I hope you've not been too bored with all this, but it's a great way to show my friends and family what's been going on here.
My next post will be filled with progress on my string quilt series.
