How blessed I am to have such a handy husband who doesn't mind doing the dirty work as well. Of course someone had to be in charge of the camera!!
Next we patched up the holes and moved the furniture back into place. The rest was up to me to do the sorting out and putting in place. The photo below shows part of my stash neatly folded on the shelves. I made a curtain to hang over them to keep off the dust, of which there is plenty in the windy season on the farm, and I have also found that the light from the window is inclined to fade the fabric. The drawers also contain charm packs, layer cakes and jelly rolls as well as threads and bits of lace etc. The steel cupboard contains files with patterns, fancy quilting threads, quilt magazines and off-cuts of batting. My aim was to have my sewing room completely clutter free in which to work and I think that I have achieved just that.

When I am quilting a large quilt, I move the gate-legged table to the left of my sewing table onto which the bulk of the quilt will lie.
I am so thrilled with the layout now of my sewing room and sew much easier to
Thank you for stopping by to see where I "do it"!!
