"New" Sewing Room

As I told ya'll in this post, we got an organ that was my daddy's and brought it home from AR.  We got home very late on Christmas Eve and had to get up Christmas morning and rearrange furniture because I wanted to put the organ where my treadle was and the treadle where my desk was and my desk went to the other side of the living room!
I was not sure I wanted to move my treadle because I had my quilt right behind it, but since I got this quilt of my grandmother's, I'm happy with it!
My dinning room table has my electric and the treadle opens up and fits perfectly on the table so I don't have to worry about anything getting scratched and I can leave it open.  I'm hoping this way I will start using it!
I had this green sewing machine cabinet with a machine that did not work.  I was wanting to put my Redeye 66 hand crank in it, but it will take some work, so for now it has my other hand crank sitting over the hole.
 Pippi (below) and Squeeky (above) love the quilt I put over my office chair.  They are ready to sew!  I have to keep something over my machine when I walk away because Pippi likes to pull the thread out, the little stinker!
Look what my husband got me for Christmas!  An Ottlite, they are selling them for $19 at Walmart!  (It was not this dark, it was because of the flash and the light being on at the same time)
 It works amazing!  As you know, I do not have a light on my handcrank or treadle, so this way I can easily move it to either machine.
I am really happy with the way my dining room sewing room looks now!  It is so much easier to use, I don't have to move machines out of the way to use other machines now!  When I have company, all I have to do is close the cabinets and my treadle is on wheels so I can just roll it closer to the green cabinet!  I have a towel under the lid on top of the treadle to keep it from scratching.  I had wanted to put my Redeye there, but it was too heavy.
My Redeye is in the corner until I can either get a base or convert the green cabinet.
Thank you for visiting my "new" room!  I just realized the last time I did a major rearrange of this room was last January!  LOL

Thanks for the tour! It's nice to see how other people have arranged their rooms and it's even nicer to see the furry critters - even if they are naughty sometimes :)

Your new sewing room is picture perfect. Calico prints, quilts, wood, vintage sewing machine and kitties. The whole area is very calming and happy. Found you on Feline Friday. :)

Missy, it looks fabulous -- I'm sure it will be fun to sit down and sew in your newly created/arranged spot, too!! Have fun! :)

I am in awe of you "younger" girls going for the hand cranks and treadle machines -- thank you for saving them. If I had a bigger house I would definitely have more machines and more cats!!

I'd be calling it a sewing room, too!!! Not having to move each machine when you want to sew is a definite advantage.
