New Craft Space - In Progress

I wanted to share some pictures of my new crafting space. It's a little messy but as the title says, it's in progress.

My design wall is resting on the couch for now but eventually it will be mounted or hung in some way so that it's functional and art...sort of. That's hubby's head there in the bottom!

This is my ironing board only you can't tell because there's so much clutter on it!

My machine and chair face out into the room so that I can watch tv and hopefully one day keep an eye on kids at play.

My cutting table is directly behind my machine. It's pretty convenient being able to just turn around and stand up to cut! The shelf above is one of my favorite items in the room. I love the compartments and that I can put stuff on top too! I plan to mount lights to the bottom to shine down on my cutting area. I have trouble taking photos of my work at the moment because I always cast a shadow no matter what I do.

My messy desk where all the blog magic happens. Yes that's about 100 assorted markers and colored pencils. I've been collecting since high school!

A view of the whole area. Total mess! It's driving me crazy so I've been working on it every night. It's actually a lot better now but I am going to wait to post more pictures until it's 'done'.

This picture was taken later the same evening after we put up my new shelves. Unfortunately IKEA doesn't make that collection of shelves in the same color as my original big one but I think they're going to look better once I have stuff on them.

That's all for now. Hopefully I can finish sorting and organizing soon so I can get back to just crafting and sewing!

Happy Quilting (or whatever you are up to these days!)

Looks like you going to have a wonderful work space once you're finished.
