When Linda over at the Patchwork Pearl suggested a
blog hop, for the Island Batik Ambassadors...
a hop to share our favorite things about our sewing room.
Shear panic struck!
I'd love to tell you I'm organized and my room is always neat and tidy...
But these pictures are worth a thousand words, aren't they?
I gotta get busy and clean up this mess!
What better motivation, than having to show it off!
We were asked to share one thing that we just love about our stitchin space.
Hummm...I think mine has to be IKEA.
I fell in love with this "IKEA thing" when they opened a store here 3-4 years ago.
They are well known, as a leader in organizing.
Who better, to need some help with that???
My first purchase was this drawer base, for my ironing board.
It's a great place to
hide I mean, store fabric!
Check them out right HERE
A close up here shows just why I love my ironing station...
(I'm walkin, the walk of shame here,
this board has since gotten a new cover)
While the shelf holds all my favorite Alaska treasurers,
it's main purpose is to give me a place for these fabulous lights.
These are LED lights from Inspired LED.
They are on a sticky strip that is simple to attach to anything.
Best yet, they are so affordable!
I'd love to say, cheap and easy...just the way I like it,
but that would be tacky now wouldn't it!
OOPS, my bad!
Seriously though, I can't imagine my sewing room without them.
You can read more about there right
it's at the end of the tutorial
Shows the sewing machine kit.
These drawers worked so well, that I added 2 more sets,
so I could leave a couple of machines up all the time.
and of course more fabric storage!
I went on to add this drawer set for my longarm supplies.
There are drawers for everything, including those big cones of thread.
P E R F E C T !!

The last piece I added was this rolling cart drawer set,
to sit next to my sewing machine.

All my supplies, are at the tip of my fingers.
I've been on a paper piecing kick lately,
and this cart allows me to cut and press,
without leaving my chair.
It's a great time saver, but it sure won't
make that pedometer move much.
There is no 10,000 steps
a day with this set up!
If, there is one tip I can share...
It's, to re-purpose those old cutting mats.
They are easy enough to cut to size,
and they can come in handy, in so many ways!
Thanks to Island Batik, I have a lot of favorite things in my sewing room!
Thank you, for visiting the MooseStash!
The boys, and I just love the company.
(Oh and there are a few Moose-ettes too)
I do, hope we have inspired you.
Be sure to visit the other Ambassadors for some fabulous faves they have to share...
