My Reorganized Sewing Nook

So yesterday my husband let me add a new piece of furniture to my sewing nook. I had a lot of fun reorganizing when the baby allowed me too. I am expecting some fabric quilt squares this week and want it to be ready for when they arrive so I can jump in. I added a solid wood pine 7 drawer dresser. I absolutely love it! So, I cleaned out my sewing cabinet that was given to me by my mil, and put all my notions and things in the dresser. I then went through my sad little stash and put that into my cabinet and eliminated an old ugly plastic bin. I still have one there though for my scraps. So I am so excited I just wanted to share it with you all!! Oh, btw, I have a box of fabric coming in the next couple of weeks from my friend in Japan, I know what i will make with it now, a quilt. I cannot wait!! Here are two pics of the new area. Doesn't it look nice???
This is a before picture:
Below is my sewing machine, it is nice, I LOVE it!! Oh, you quilting ladies, I found a walking foot on Ebay for $13.00 that will fit this, so in a week or so, I will buy it!
Here is the after picture, doesn't it look nicer and cleaner.
Like the 7 drawer dresser?? this is the cleaned after picture!

Pretty! I always like to see people's sewing spaces and think of what it'll be like to have one when I have space...

Such a nice job cleaning up. I always "try" to put everything back where it belongs, but it always seems to need extra help after a week or two.

Yours is so clean, I have to hang my head in shame now.... Mine's not that organized right now.

Lovely, just lovely! I know you will create some wonderful items in that great space. It is fun to have your own area with all of your bits and bobs isn't it?
Have fun!

I just love seeing other people's sewing and crafting spaces! I recently checked a book out of the library that was nothing but sewing and quilting studios. Your space is looking terrific....
