This is my little sewing corner of the world. It is set up between the living room and the kitchen. My spot on the couch is just to the right of the picture.
I have a love/dislike relationship with my sewing area where it is. I love that I can sew and still be in the middle of everything going on with the family but sometimes it can drive me crazy being right in the middle of everything going on with the family lol.
For now, this is the perfect little spot for me. I have everything I need right at my finger tips. I am using Robbie's old desk to hold my sewing machine and all those things I need. The drawers work out great to hold projects and scraps. The center drawer holds my scissors, sewing machine needles and accessories, rulers, pencils, etc. The top left drawer is crammed full of scraps. These are the bits and pieces left over from cutting blocks. Nothing too big in here. The second drawer stores my laptop and a couple in progress quilt tops. The last drawer holds all my finished quilt tops that are ready for batting, backing, and quilting. This is a great system because I can only fit so many tops in that drawer. Once it is full it forces me to actually turn the tops into quilts before I can move on to other projects.
This little gadget was a perfect accessory for my spot. For the longest time I was constantly getting up and going into the kitchen to iron all my pieces and blocks. I think I spent more time walking than sewing lol. Good exercise but not great for time management! Then Hubby suggested we put up a power strip. DUH! Don't know why I didn't think of that a long time ago. Now I can use my little table top ironing board right next my sewing area. Thanks Hubby!
