From Little Things, Big Things Grow....

I felt the need to introduce you all to my 'Sewing Nookette'. It's so small, that it is in fact a nookette as opposed to a nook which I am sure is much larger than this space. Other than my folding Horn sewing cabinet and my folding cutting/prep table, I have a handy dandy bookshelf/wine rack thingy that is used to store my quilting mags and books along with my fabric that is packed into project form in zip lock bags. The rest of my stash lives in 4 large plastic storage containers in the corner of the lounge room covered with a pretty cloth to hide it's whereabouts. Pinned to the curtains are the latest brainstorming ideas for blocks or quilt designs and my design wall is actually my bed providing I make it each day. Storage bags hang off what ever wall space is spare at the time and from hooks slung over the curtain rod.

The floor space in my nookette is just a tad over 1 metre square, which is just enough space for my sewing chair to run in and out from the machine when I have to get up to the cutting table or take half a step to the ironing board that houses my portable pressing pad. My sewing nookette is located in a corner of my bedroom (I have no hubby to worry about stepping on the pins that have been dropped). YES thats right girls...I can sew all day and night and just fall into bed when I'm done! Cheers to all the nookette's of the world. I just LOVE mine & would be lost without it.

Hi Julie; I think your little nookette is just perfect & compact! At least it's in one spot ready to go, go, go! Mine all has to be dragged out from storage spaces before I begin..hmmm! Rethinking my spaces now!
