After seeing Crafty Pugs, new sewing room, I accepted her invitation to share my room with you all.
My room became available about 4 years ago when my son Jarrod fell in love with the lovely Katherine and they bought a house together and he moved out. The very day I was helping them move I drove past a second hand store and a Horn sewing cabinet was for sale at the bargain price of $50. I had an old Bernina that I had got for my 18th birthday (almost 30 years ago), and no quilting fabric. I have since upgraded to the Bernina 440 QE with thanks to the Government stimulus payment
The following weekend was the Large quilting show that is held at the Showgrounds once per year so I went with a friend, bought a pack of country fat quarters and a pattern and made my first quilt - Roosting Roosters.
Here a few shots of how my room looks today. I am just waiting on my daughters partner (who is a carpenter) to put some shelves up for me to store my growing stash of magazines.
Fabric stash all in colour co-ordinated boxes
Sewing reels and thank you cards
