My Creative Space


 I get asked about where I sew often via email and on Facebook. 
 
 
My sewing space is small, functional and filled with things that make me happy. 


The view.


The art.



And little touches that make it all mine.


Mostly it's a space where I can be working and still be with my family or at least within earshot of all that is going on.  I love having the magnetic board right above my cutting table/large work space to display anything from the newest love note from one of my daughters to inspirational photos or reminders.


I'm taking part in the Studio Spotlight series at The Sewing Loft and Ellison Lane. They're spotlighting creative sewing spaces all week so be sure to stop by and check them all out. There's a link party for everyone to showcase their sewing space too with great prizes August 16-23.

Dana...what a lovely spot...a view, too! I am currently in the process of tearing my space apart and attempting to put it back together in some kind of functional setting. We shall see. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for sharing your creative space with us.

Dana my friend. I love your space. Love all the special moments and colorful touches that are so "you." I spy a Sew South momento on your board too- that made me smile. Thanks SO much for being part of our studio spotlight. It's a pleasure having you. xo

I love it when I see others' sewing spaces. I get some good ideas for my space, when I finally finish it, one day, which probably won't be happening this weekend like originally planned...anyway, cute space.

Ginny said...

Dana, love your space, the view, the art, the things that make it feel like "home" There's nothing like being surrounded by things you love!
