When we agreed to be on the house tour, I thought the historical society was interested only in the first floor of the house. But then two ladies from the committee came to see the house (to be sure it is not a house of horrors, we joked), saw all the quilts, and thought people would enjoy seeing the bedrooms and sewing room. "Of course, you'll have to clean up," said one, looking at all the stuff on the sewing room floor (aka my organization system).
View from the doorway. Sewing room doubles as a guest room.
There is a trundle bed under the day bed.
It took some work to get it all cleaned up. Still, some tubs of fabric and works in progress were stashed in Miss Main Street's off-limits bedroom.
Bookshelf storage unit behind me as I sew, holds my quilt book collection, patterns in one drawer, rulers and templates in another. The lower cabinet on the left holds part of my Christmas fabric stash.
Wall to my left while I sew with All Dressed Up on display. I can put a piece of flannel over the rod and call it a design wall. To the left of the quilt is the small closet (a downside of old houses is the small closets); it holds more fabric stash.
My sewing machine, Bernina Q440.
Tools at hand while I sew. The onyx bowl holds pins. A small basket, out of picture to the right, holds scraps for leaders and enders. The Shaker work tray is handy for carrying hand sewing supplies to another room.
