Glimpses of my sewing room....

 This little corner of my sewing room is near one of the windows looking onto our back yard,the tall thin bookcase was made for me by my Father-in-law for my sewing room and because the shelves are so narrow  I've used it to display some of my pieces I've either collected over the years,been gifted with,received in swaps or won in giveaways,I love this little corner of my room.
 This is the view you get as you walk into the room from our carport,I have a sliding door into my sewing room from there.I still need to tidy up a lot more but it's a start.I have lables/tags needing to be done to replace the post-it notes on boxes and baskets....I still have to finish making up the new curtains for around each of the tables as well.The little green stool is another of my Father-in-laws handiwork and I plan on using it to display my stuff on as well.
This cabinet was a garage sale find a few years ago,I'm thinking of putting some pretty material in the doors and getting my DH to put the shelf up for me that's leaning beside it on the right.
I couldn't resist making a little table top display on this cabinet,all my Annie dolls,red and white journals etc....make a pretty display when I come into the room,makes me smile each time I see it.
I'll try and post more pictures as I finish things in my sewing room,I still have lots to do but with small steps I'll get there eventually :)

Love it all, Barb. The cupboard, the birdhouse, the Arnott's tin- well everything- it looks fab.
BTW I posted a pic on the good morning thread of the Angel you made me ages ago. :)

Nice work you have done and that room is all a sewer needs:)I have to sew on a kitchen table. Fortunately I live alone so I can leave all stuff there and continue working next day and I can always enjoy my morning coffee in the living room;)
