My NEW Sewing Room!

I am quite pleased with the dining room, aka my sewing room. Not only is it bigger than before, it has that awesome built-in buffet along the wall. The light is pretty good and I have already made one curtain for the bedroom and half of my "interview dress." 
 Plus, I have the ironing board right there. Before, I walked across the house to the laundry room to iron things. But, I did. I am an advocate of "sew, trim threads, press seams". The back door leads to the back porch (yes, there is a front porch too!), so if anyone classy was coming over, I could throw my ironing board and dummy and tub of patterns back there for a bit. Fortunately, I don't know anyone classy.
 Also, I have the little tv hooked up in the corner. This solves the problem of sewing to the sounds of Andrew machine gunning people down on some Xbox game. Lol.
 Like I said, the cabinet is built-in and I not only have a place to store my Wedgwood china, but I have all these drawers to tuck my things away in. I also have the top to toss things on so we can actually eat at the dining room table like real people. It's shocking, I know, but we have managed it two nights in a row!
 Here's my dress in progress. It is going to be fully lined, so it's about half done right now.
The dining room is open to the kitchen, but I cleverly cut it out of all my pictures. It is really messy, and it's too hot for me to care. It's 98 degrees and all I have is a fan! T-Rex and I have just been lying on the floor in front of the fan, panting and sweating, respectively. Yipes!

Curtain pictures tomorrow. You like my sewing room? Jealous? I hope so, I am quite pleased about it. Toodles!

  9. Ah-hah! I got a glimpse of your kitchen through the mirror in the buffet!!

    But in all seriousness, the sewing/dining room looks fantastic! The buffet makes the room!
