New Sewing Room

I am slowly getting my sewing room together.  I am so excited about finally having my own room to sew!  I got my grandmother's quilt hung, but I still need to find my sewing themed knick knacks to put up there. See that built in on the left?  That is why I chose this room, I think my husband's office might be a tad bigger, but I fell in love with this room when I saw it!

I also fell in love with the shelves in the closet, I knew they would be perfect for my sewing machines!
The first thing I hung up was this wall hanging I won from Michelle at http://afwife85.blogspot.se/  Aren't the spools perfect for my sewing room?  My sewing room is green and blue too, so the green is perfect!
I put my treadle and hand crank back to back to give myself more room along the walls, and this way I'm not staring at a wall all day.  I picked up the white cubbies in the corner at a yard sale, I need to find a couple more to make it higher because the cats like to eat my peace lilly whom my husband has dubbed Lilly.
I spray painted the changing table blue.  I still need to move those quilts out and use that shelf for more tubs.  Do you see Oreo on the middle shelf?  The top is designated as a cat bed.  I laid a flannel sheet and their pillow there, which Pippi is sitting on.  I thought this was a perfect place for some of my blue penguins.  To the right is my cutting table.  It is a card table and is bowing in the middle so my husband bought a piece of wood almost the size of my cutting mat, plus another piece of wood for the back of the table to hold all my stuff.  To the left are my spool holders which I also spray painted blue, it was all supposed to be aqua, but that was the closest color I could find.
Here is Muffin enjoying the quilts.
The colors are terrible in this picture, but I put one of my antique aprons on my dummie and she is also holding all of my measuring tapes.  I decided she needed a bit of bling and put a pearl necklace and a hat on her.
I found this picture on the internet and got it printed out at Walgreens and spray painted the picture frame, I hung it above my quilting table, between the window and quilt wall hanging.  It says "one who makes no mistakes, never makes anything"  I thought above the cutting table was a perfect place for it!
All I need now is to figure out where to put my bookshelves for all of my books!

I'm sure I'll still be moving things around and changing them as I go along.

Pippi loves the bathroom sink and drinking from the faucet!
I am just so happy about my sewing room!

I am still trying to get caught up on my blog reading after being without internet for over a week!  I also need to finish my cat blocks and get them mailed, unfortunately they will be a day late.  :(  But I did only have one week to move!

Your room looks really nice. The sink is interesting, sideways. You do get better access to the bowl that way.

Looks like you had a lot of fun arranging your stuff in your new space! It does look like a good size room. I'm sure once you start working in it, it will begin to speak to you and you'll definitely be rearranging! Every time I see your old Singer, I long for my mom's machine, which I still need to bring to my own house, one of these days!

I also have one of those changing table... that I kept to reuse... but didn't know for what. Until now. I love your idea of using it to store quilts. Thanks for sharing your pictures and giving me this idea!
P.S.: the hexies make a gorgeous background!
