New sewing space!

 I can't believe that we are into July and I have not posted anything since February!

SO much has changed the first half of 2021.

- I moved! 

- My new apartment is a 2 floor townhome over looking the Chicago river with killer views of the Willis tower (aka Sears Tower) and loop buildings. Which was a total surprise for us!! 

- I love my new living and sewing space AND I am now living with peoples again! My daughter and granddaughter and I are all cohabitating and it is so dang lovely. 

- My new sewing space is coming together quite nicely! It is split into 2 spaces- Upstairs which is mostly storage and downstairs which is the actual sewing space.

Here are some pics of my new space!

This first batch are from the downstairs main sewing area that is incorporated into the main living area. There are 2 sewing machines side by side, one is mine and one is my daughters. The serger is against the bank of windows overlooking the river.

There is a large work table that now has a full size custom Rhino cutting mat that is 36 by 55 inches and has book cases on each side. This side showing is my side :)

The view of the river from my serger! 

My new yellow chair for hand sewing and perusing of my sewing and design books! a super comfy spot.

This next group of photos is from my upstairs area which is a part of my master bedroom suite. I have my patterns stored in 2 small filing cabinets, my fabrics are stored in 2 areas. Knits and cotton skirtings and denims as well as my button collections are in the covered storage shelving.

Half of my master closet has the rest of my fabrics hanging and I totally love it. 
Lets head upstairs!

Comfy happy nook in my master suite. 

The colors of my fabric hanging in my closet make me so damn HAPPY!

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my new sewing space! 
Having a good space to sew in really makes me happy and fosters my creativity. My new DittoForm will be here this week and I am looking forward to creating new designs for my new body! 

Happy Sewing!
Enjoy this parting photo of Arya under my newly finished wool applique pillow.
