My Stitching Room

I had time today to "pick up" my stitching room, so here are the pictures. Trust me, it's never this neat and tidy! This used to be my son's bedroom (it's quite small in size). When we finished our lower level, he moved down to a larger room.

As you can see, I've got a comfortable wicker chair to sit in. Note the tablecloth on the table - this was stitched by a woman in Hungary. To the right is a china cabinet filled with Beatrix Potter figurines. When my kids were small, we were crazy about the Beatrix Potter stories. At that time, you could pick up these figurines quite inexpensively. We enjoyed looking at these figurines when we would read the stories!



To the right of the cabinet is our computer. In the corner is a chest of drawers which houses threads, fabric/linen, kitted patterns, stash, etc. The table is a great work surface; my sewing machine is always handy! On the table, there are cookie tins filled with balls of DMC #8 and #12. I've started hanging framed projects in this room where I can enjoy them!



The only thing not visible to you in these pictures is my stash of patterns - I have two "two-inch" three ring binders filled with patterns. They are all in plastic sleeves and organized by designer.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of my stitching room. Now you know where I am when I'm thinking about you!

Very nice stitching room, Cathy! I know it doesn't often look so neat and organized (at least mine doesn't), but it's great to capture the moment when it does, lol!

What a cozy and inviting niche you have! It really suits how I've imagined you as a person, too!

Max, our oldest, also loved Beatrix Potter and still enjoys the lovely videos my mom picked up years ago for him. (So do I!)
