About Me

My Photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

I'm in.... well sort of

Thought I'd show you my new "Stitching Room" mind you it needs some tweeking but I'm pleased so far.

I need to put some more thing up on the wall. My lovely Lucy quilt is hanging with pride.

A relatively tidy cupboard for now anyway.

Hi Leanne
Your room looks great, unfortunately mine still has a bed in it taking up valuable space! When will we see some finished stuff from Loxton?
Cheers

Lovely space Leanne! So organized! Maybe Mell would love his own little sewing-machine. He looks kind of sad, sitting in the corner!

AWESOME!!! I'm thrilled for you. And you get to look out the window while you sew. How joyous! Happy sewing!

Teresa said...

Isn't it wonderful to have a space to call your own? I do like your "studio" as everyone calls them around here. I share a space with my husband and that is where we spend our evenings. It is just so nice to be able to leave whatever I am working on out and ready to pick right back up on. Congratulations on your wonderful space!

Catherine said...

What a wonderful space for you to be creative in! I bet you're happy that all it needs now is just a bit of "tweaking". ;o)

Hi Leanne thanks for your nice remarks about Whitneys pic hope they appreciate it too.. Love your room...I have plans for Whitneys I already have a sewing room but it is out the back & gets very hot & cold so I will leave everything(patterns material etc) out there & just have my machine inside with what I am working on at the moment..well thats the plan:) it will also be a spare/guest room too.. are you going to the Quilt fabric delights retreat next year?

Looks like you have a great place to create and sew. I love the feeling of getting all organized and having things in their places but it's not always easy for me to keep it that way.

Sweet P said...

What a wonderful new place for creating! I hope you enjoy it!

gertie said...

What a lovely space to be creative in! I have to share mine with the computer desk and filing cabinets which is OK until schools over and the boys are both playing loud games on the computer!I keep threatening to swap rooms with Master 9 who has the biggest bedroom in the house!

teodo said...

Leanne, your sewing room is fantastic!
I haven't a sewing room and I would like to have one..........
