  3. What a lovely room. But I think what I like the most is your door, can't beat a G&T when everything has gone pear shaped!

  5. Hey Leila, I am just in the process of turning my spare bedroom into my sewing room so it's interesting to see what you have used.

    My boys are just putting together a set of bookshelves, I'm desperate for some shelf space for fabric.

    So nice to have your own space, enjoy using yours.

  10. So beautiful! I am wondering how you painted and finished your little step-stool. I have the same one that is still bare wood and needs a little love!

    1. I improvised lol! I painted it white first, I didn't do a neat job I just made sure I had no runs. Then I lightly painted turquoise over it and sanded it down around the edges and in the center of the steps to make it look old and used. It worked out nicely I think.

  11. Such a pretty sewing space!! There are so many things in there I love so much especially the polka dots ironing board and those baskets for fabric scraps being on the floor. And I love the idea of the quilt blocks hanging like that! Hope you don't mind I will copy you.. hehe!

  23. I too love your sewing room chalk door idea! I always sketch out whatever I'm working on, or whatever I'm dreaming up - this would be a wonderful visual inspiration tool for me. One day!!
    I have the same (pink) Pfaff sewing machine as you. I've never owned a machine I couldn't open up to clean & oil properly before. I'm guessing one has to have it serviced for that. Have you had to do that yet?
