Craft Room and fabric for LQS4

I love it when people post pictures of their creative spaces, and since I just spent a day cleaning, I thought I would share mine! This is my sewing area with my lovely old/vintage sewing machine. My mom passed it down to me. It is at least 35 years old-which is older than me!

Check out the new crown molding put up by my husband a couple of weeks ago! Those are the three quilt tops that I still need to quilt. From top to bottom: Scrappy Disappearing Nine Patch, Batik quilt, and Star Quilt-A-Long.


I love this map! We mark wherever we travel with red and blue markers. It is hard to see in this picture. These are some of my many books, too. The picture on the top shelf is of me getting a book signed by Anne Rice. I have first editions of all of her books except for Interview with a Vampire. Almost all of them are signed!

Finally, here are the fabrics I am sending out for the newest edition of the Craftster Lap Quilt Swap. These will go out to one group. I love the dogs on the cream! The three on the left are from Moda's Pampered Pooches line. The swap signup deadline ends tomorrow if you are still on the fence about joining!

I love, love your creative space...all those lovely books, a priceless sewing maching and the map. You can see where your visitors come from on your blog as well as mark your destinations. And the crown molding IS gorgeous. Totally finishes a room, doesn't it? Thanks for giving us this peek into your world!

Wonderful space, and so tidy! I haven't taken the time to tidy my sewing space in a long time (at least a month or maybe more!) But it's High time I did! You've motivated me. It's wonderful to see the fabrics you've chosen for the Lap Quilt Swap at Craftster! I've just finished cutting and sorting mine~!

Love your space! I quilt at the kitchen table - it's always up and down. But it keeps it neat!

Neat pics of your workspace!

Love your space - mine needs cleaned (again). I tried to sign up, but since this would be my first swap, I have to find something else to do first:( Oh well - there will be another one - which I will make sure I have all the qualifications met for.

Love your craft room! It's so neat! Mine seems to stay a mess. This is your mom and dad's friend, Sherry, again. I would love for you to visit my blog and comment. I'm new to this and still have a lot of "tricks" to learn. Please go to bearbearcreates.blogspot.com and let me know what you think. I'd love to have your email address, too, if you don't mind. Your mom has mine.
