My sewing room is in what was the lounge in our new house but as we have a really large family room we don't need a formal lounge as well. My room will also have to serve as a spare room when my mother in law comes to visit, hence the sofa bed! That's fine with me though as we get along really well!
So as a reminder, this was my old sewing space:
There are a couple of special items in my room too.
This old tin might not look much but I think of my Mum everytime I see it! My Mum passed away nearly 24 years ago and this tin contains some old projects of hers which she never finished including some tatting and crochet motifs for a doily. I don't crochet or do tatting so I have left them as they are for now. I might have to applique them into a project down the track. There's also an envelope addressed to her twin brother during the war (and never sent obviously). It has her writing on it and contains old patterns of embroideries I assume she must have made at some stage.
I also have a tapestry she made which isn't quite finished but I need to match cottons to that before I can finish it. Anyway this way my Mum is here with me when I'm sewing!
To finish here are some of my favourite places in our new house.
