You Shall Not Covet Your Mom's Sewing Room...

... But I do!!!!

I recently visited my family in Montana and had some sewing to do while I was there.  (Post to come soon - finished a super cute diaper bag for my high school buddy Simone!)

It's hard not to covet this beautiful room - first off, she has an actual room for sewing (unlike the dining room, where I do all of my sewing).  It was an addition my parent's did to their house last year - my Dad got a new garage to house his future Camaro and my Mom got a sewing room - fair trade if you ask me!)  So they added a lovely room off their bedroom - it has great windows so wonderful natural light and features all the great things you'd expect to find in a nice sewing room!

My Mom has a fantastic cutting table - it has drop leaf sides so she can make the table extra big when she needs to or little tiny too.

She has a super-duper huge dresser full of amazing fabrics (not sure what she's going to do with all this great fabric but I know I could!!!!)

and an old sewing table from someone in our family that has lots of little knick-knacks and precious finds that I could spend hours going through.

There is also an antique ironing board with the cutest cover ever and the piece de resistance!

A BRAND NEW Bernina sewing machine - this thing had a ton of bells & whistles and put my little sad (hand-me down from my Mom) Bernina to shame.

It was SO much fun having the opportunity to sew with this fantastic machine and make use of all your sewing supplies and room - thanks for letting me Mom!!!!
