This is where the magic happens! Once upon a time this was an unfinished "bonus room"/attic over the garage. Thanks to my sister Chrissy and a wonderful contractor named Ray, we now have a perfect oasis for all things crafty.
The center table is about ten feet long and about four feet wide. Chrissy's space is on the left and mine is on the right. Most of the items you see on the built-ins are for stitching, but we also have beading, painting, and scrapbooks projects too!
A few things that I do to keep organized: Cross stitch charts are in baskets and are labeled according to season. (I'm a seasonal stitcher, don't you know.) Needlepoint canvases are hanging on skirt hangers on a shower rod that I installed under the built-in on my side. I keep DMC floss on bobbins in labeled boxes and every other thread/fiber is in a labeled drawer. I even got a little crazy and made alphabet tags to separate my Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Art threads.
Yes, kids, it is true. I have a Brother P-Touch and I'm not afraid to use it.
The final picture is of my WIP basket. Everything that has any stitching on it whatsoever is mounted on q-snaps or stretcher bars and is in this basket. The materials for the project (i.e., chart, threads, etc.) are in mesh project bags.
In my next post, I'll show you the Spinster Happy Chair, which is where I actually do most of my stitching when Chrissy isn't here.
Hope you've enjoyed the little tour....come again real soon!
