I'm moved, I think!

We have just moved to a new house and are loving it! We moved in two weeks ago and I've been busy unpacking things and finding lots of items that have been packed for several months. We stayed with my sister in law for 5 weeks between places. It worked out well and I even had my own sewing room there :-). We built a raised ranch so that we could have large windows in the lower level which is where my sewing room and Jake's office are. So, we basically live down there. We put in floor heating in the basement which makes it very comfortable. We hope to put a laminate floor in the sewing room this summer, so I have set up the room temporarily. Here are a few pictures.

Here is the Dear Jane sewing station. I have my Singer 28 handcrank set up in a library table. I received the laminated poster of the original Dear Jane quilt from my friend Amy last Christmas and hope to hang that on the wall above the machine.

An old Husqvarna cabinet (the machine is long gone) is serving as my light box work area. I'm working on some embroidery and need to do a little more tracing, so now it's all set up to work.

My Bernina 614 electric and the trusty Singer 15-88 treadle are set up right under the windows with my drawers of supplies and UFO's close at hand. The ironing board and cutting table are close to the sewing area.

Here is the sewing room looking from the back to the front of the house. There is lots of natural light. My old kitchen table (with four leaves) minus the casters will serve as a sewing table until I find some individual tables. We also hope to make a cutting table this summer. I'm contemplating the design :-).

The sewing room looking from the front to the back. The wall between the two book cases will be my design wall. It will have shelves along the whole wall for my fabric and we hope to put sliding doors in front that will serve as the design wall.

Now to find time to actually sew in the room!

Hi Jacqui,
What a large and lovely new space you have. The light looks amazing. I am very happy for you - a bit jealous, too! lol. I'll bet it feels good to be finally home in your new digs.
