And the sewing room is unpacked!

Disclaimer: tons of thanks to my family and dear friend Sallie for making this possible. Without their help, this would not have been possible until weeks, possibly months from now.

After Dad got the brachets screwed into the wall, CC put my shelves up on Saturday. I wasn't 100% sure the height I wanted between them, so it took a few rounds, and we finally got to this.


On Sunday, a few boxes were unpacked and put up, and we he moved the plastic containers to the shelves


On Monday, Sallie came by and unpacked the rest of my boxes and helped me organize the contents on the rest of the shelves and in the closet (closet not shown)


When I stepped back, I realized I had under-utilized space on the right where my beads were. So they were moved over to the far left and the crochet project container was moved into the space on the right with another couple of containers on top.


At first I believed that I wanted my ironing board between my two sewing machines.


But the use of space was not ideal, and I didn't like the way it stuck out into the middle of the room after all. So with my mom's help last night, we she moved the ironing board to the left of the Pfaff, and moved the Pfaff closer to the Bernina. Eventually the wall behind the ironing board will house my design wall.




The Sizzix sits on its own wall now, instead of in front of the design wall.


Just to the right of my shelving, I have a freestanding skinny shelf unit for a few more binders, sewing machine manuals, some quilting DVDs, and some odds and ends.


Where the Artbin satchels and other project boxes now sit in a heap next to the skinny shelving unit will go the 3 satchel cubes (stacked) I bought on sale (updated to add new photo showing them).


And currently my cutting table is just in front of my Sizzix. It will likely move around as needed once I can actually get in and start using the room again. At the moment, Fall Frolic (ready to quilt), Jared Takes a Wife (ready to bind), and the Calendar Baskets Wallhanging are perched on it, along with a small throw pillow.


It gives me a sense of peace just knowing that room is completely unpacked and ready for me when I get to be ready for it again.

Love your new sewing room! What kind of table did you get for your sizzix? I am looking for something sturdy for mine. Aren't quilting friends the greatest! Hope you are enjoying your new happy place soon!
