Sewing Sanctuary

A few months ago, my husband brought home this free camper that he found on Craigslist.  A couple of the windows were broken and some of the trim was missing.  The owner decided he would rather give it away than do the repairs. My husband parked it, fixed it up a little, declared it was never going anywhere, and finally decided I could have it.  It's my new sewing sanctuary.  I am lucky enough to have a room to sew in our home, but with three boys and my husband, there is never any quiet.  I love them very much, but having a quiet escape all my own?  Wonderful.

I haven't done any prettying up yet, just setting up and organizing so far.  Here's my sewing table, surrounded by lots of big windows and natural light.  See all the vintage machines tucked away under the table?  It's ready to go.

I put my old cutting mat on the kitchen counter.  Perfect height for cutting.  Plus lots of drawers and cabinets for supplies.

A vintage child's desk and another seat for when the kids feel like making something.

Boxes of organized supplies so I can actually find what I'm looking for!  I may eventually replace these with some cubes or shelving or something.

I even have a nice comfy bed for relaxing, daydreaming, and designing.  Ahhhhh!  I've already written a few patterns right here.  It is a lot easier to write when you aren't getting interrupted every thirty seconds or so (like I am right now).

Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!

Get Creative!
