Sharing my newest sewing space

We almost never have anyone over for dinner, nor do we sit at a dinner table regularly in our house.  So, I re-purposed our dining space to be a sewing space for me.  I also have two desks and switched back to the smaller desk for keyboard room which leaves the larger desk to act as a cutting table.  It is just the right size!  The pantry to the right of the cleaning closet (bi-fold door) is huge and contains much of my fabric, patterns, and other sewing stuff.  Not much food is in my pantry!  Hope you enjoy this little tour...



Sewing area.  When sewing, I set up the ironing board on the brown rug so that I can swivel in my rolling desk chair to press while sewing.


Sewing machine on the table Mom gave me.  It's got a handy raised section to the left so that fabric is better supported.
Supply cart and bulletin board.  This blocks a cleaning closet and since the cart is on wheels, it is easy enough to roll it out of the way should I want to vacuum or mop.


Desk to the right of my sewing machine.  Duffy's kennel is easy to move when I am cutting out a project.  The half shelf under the desk is currently home to my pressing ham.  The green toolbox on the floor to the left contains all my immediate-need sewing tools - such as scissors, pins, needles, etc.
Desk drawers - left contains tools and rotary cutters and the center drawer (keyboard tray) has my rulers and seam roll.  All but one huge ruler fit into the drawer.
Desk surface - left is a small (yellow) rotary mat that swivels for quick cuts while at my sewing machine.  The top of the desk is a good size for my large rotary mat.  Shown are three projects - sleeves on the left for a blouse in progress, a wallet, and a blouse to make.

 
Closeup of next two projects - a zipping wallet and a blouse with a faux cowl out of a soft, rosy rayon from Walmart.
