All I Want is a Room Somewhere

All I Want is a Room Somewhere

I have a confession: I’ve never actually seen the musical or film, My Fair Lady, but the song Wouldn’t It Be Loverly was a cherished song from my Mama, and always has held a special spot in my heart.  It is with the lyrics of this song in mind, that I present to you my sewing/craft space!

We’ve been in our house for over a year, and are still settling in.  The other night, I found some spare time on my hands and finally finished organizing!  The photos aren’t the best quality, as my craft space is in our basement and doesn’t have much for natural lighting.  But, photo quality aside, here is my room, far away from the cold night air!

Full Space

Project Corner: Storage Bins for on-going projects,
hanging bags for current knitting/crochet projects,
crate of craft books, and needle/hook storage canisters
Needle/Hook Storage Canisters (left to right): Made from repurposed oatmeal containers
Yarn Scraps, Knitting Needles, and Crochet Hooks & Circular Knitting Needles.

Sewing Nook: Filing cabinet for pattern storage and sewing machine components,
 tackle box for various craft tools, small drawer container for thread, needles, bobbins, and buttons.

Key hook turned scissor holder, magnetic project board.

Cutting/Yarn Area: Our old dining room table turned craft surface, curtains to hideaway
storage tubs under the table, IKEA utility cart for storing yarn
Writer’s Corner: 1941 Royal Quiet Deluxe Typewriter from my Grandfather
(This is used for fun projects, including Box of Blooms)

Close-up of the keys – isn’t this awesome?!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of my little space.  Do you have a special place you like to relax or work on projects?  Share in the comments below!

All I want is a room somewhere, far away…               I currently have this song in my head.  Do you?

    Dear Maggie,

    JEALOUS!!!!

    I wish I had someplace I could set all my sewing and craft stuff out at where little hands didn’t have access to it and I could just leave it out and not have to put it away!

    Your room looks so awesome! ENJOY! :)

    Oh man… I so wish I could do that! Having an unfinished basement kind of stinks! Right now there is a lot of craft *stuff* piling up on my hope chest. There is just no good place for any of it!
    Looks like you are very well organized! Have fun!
