New Home... New Cave....New Projects

Well everyone I am sure you've been wondering what the heck happened....Did the Quilt Monster in her Closet Finally get her or what???    *giggle*  ALMOST... I avoided self destruction by the hair on my chiny chin chin...  We were in WHIRLWIND mode when our house sold in just 3 days to find a new home...We got VERY VERY LUCKY and ended up selling and closing within the same 24 hours.  IF any of you know real estate..you know that it is EXTREMELY Stressful to pull that off!    BUT we are in a WONDERFUL new home and Absolutely LOVE everything about it! 


Our New home... Moved in on Jan 30th..
There are a few things to fix mostly landscaping/external items and in the back yard.  But we know how to make that happen.. *wink*... The house was move in ready just as ours was that we were selling...  Sew....I am much more relaxed now and have my new sewing room setup.  My Quilt Monster can't hide in my sewing room closet, so it just hangs out with me in my new room... Here's some pix of the new Sewing Cave...


I redesigned my Cutting station from before... I used two Closet Made Cube Systems and put them together a bit differently to make the full storage across the front. :)  LOVE IT! There are also two shelves to the far right that are wider, for the things bigger than the bin width. 

Below you'll find my Oversized Ironing board now supported by TWO Cube systems (one 9 and one 6) for more storage..since I no longer have to make room for a closet door to open and close.   


I absolutely LOVE all the natural Light that comes into the room now with the extra and big windows.  It does turn out to be smaller than my old room square footage wise, but we now have a FOUR bedroom house.  SEW....I have taken over some of the GUEST room. *Giggle*  I mean if there are no guests at my house..I have to use the space right..*wink*.. I decided to put my Design wall up on one wall... Now it is an EVER changing piece of Wall Art for anyone stopping by or spending the night.. *grin*.
We're going to put a sofa sleeper or daybed in this room, that way I'll still have space for a machine quilting frame...Which would be AWESOME!  We'll see....*fingers crossed*


I mentioned earlier that the Quilt Monster can no Longer hide in my closet... Well that's because I have no closet door in the sewing cave... I kinda like it that way..the Monster can't make a MESS..*giggle*  

That's the Sewing Cave as it is now... I love my new space...Mr Fantastic sends me a text to remind me to come out of the Cave every so often..*giggle*  This house is nearly twice as big as our old house and we both LOVE the extra space...Not nearly as cluttered as it use to be and EVERYTHING has a Home now.   I'll share more Pictures of the house soon... But I thought I'd let ya know that I am still Alive and Well and Feeling Wonderful these days.  

Here's the Design Wall Today... I've received all the blocks from my We Bee Learning Flickr Group of ladies and LOVE how this quilt is going to turn out. 
 These blocks are called Wonky Pin Wheels...

Hugs and Happy Quilting...
Till Next Time....

That house looks awesome and I love your new sewing cave.

Also I'd like to thank you for all the nice ideas you give me for my future sewing cave, once my son either decides he really doesnt need the large room he is in now (he really doesnt as he only uses the bed and his desk and all the rest of his huge room space is simply wasted atm. :P )or when he moves out. :P

Anyway that cutting place you have. Imagine it with a sliding (lockable) desktop where you can store bolts of batting underneath it behind the front and side shelves. Or maybe yours allready has that feature?

Thanks for sharing.
